    I was reading the article and then suddenly at the bottom….BOMA!! Now I’m STARVING!

    Great app, but there is definitely room for improvement! A bit disappointed, it doesn’t pull up my existing resort/dining reservations to keep track of like the website–maybe in the next update!

  5. DreamSweetsLove

    No love for international tourists? It’s only available through the US itunes store.

    1. Robert W

      I was able to download it in Canada.

        However, I don’t get wait times. I went to the exact same Haunted Mansion page that is in this article and there was no wait time listed.

    2. Mark B

      I just got it from the UK App store by clicking in the link in the article.

      1. Kat L

        Hi Mark B what link did you click in which article? I am in UK and can’t seem to download as mobile app on iPhone 5c?

    Hurry and bring this to the Droid!

  7. GAN

    Yes… it would be nice to have access to all existing reservations right at your finger tips.

  8. Jen W

    Believe it or not, but not everyone would has access to this new system because of the lack of the phone system. DISNEY – some guests will still need the paper method.

    1. Emma

      They didn’t say anything about getting rid of paper Times Guides…

      I don’t know why you sound so disappointed. The “paper method” doesn’t give you wait times, allow you to make dining reservations, give descriptions of all the shops, give you recreation options, or let you make dining reservations. Sure, maybe you don’t have a phone, but this is going to be great for the other 90% of guests who DO bring their smartphone with them.

      1. Dave

        Since this program is not available on all Droids, Paper would be better than nothing. I can’t speak for Jen W, But I am disappointed because the program is not available for all Smartphones.

  9. Wendy

    Love it!!! Just added it to Itouch! We used mobile magic a lot on our recent trip…I can’t wait to try this out!!

    I guess I’ll just have to wait for the Droid version, but I don’t get Disney’s marketing on this one. Why make the Apple i-app before the Android app? According to mobithinking dot com:
    Worldwide smartphone market, by operating system, by 2011 global sales
    according to Canalys, Shipments 2011:
    Android, 237.7 million, 48.8% market share, Anuual growth 244%
    iOS, 93.1 million, 19.1% market share, 96% annual growth

    1. G00fydad

      92strings, I understand. The Apple corporation once again proves that it is a master at brainwashing folks. “I must have apple…I must have anything with an ‘I’ in front of it…I cannot think for myself….” That pretty much seems to be the consensus among Apple users. My Galaxy S3 smokes the iPhone 4S in EVERY way. I think people are blindly buying Apple because they want that “hipster” or “Look at me! I have an iPhone so I’m cool.” feeling. I’d rather pay several hundred less for a better product. It costs less, it is more user customizable, and more often than not it’s faster than an “i” product.

    2. Mark

      They developed an iOS version first because iOS is way less of a nightmare to develop for. Also, Apple users actually spend money on content, unlike all the cheap teens and wannabe-hackers using Android devices.

  11. G00fydad

    Looks like Disney must be buying stock in Apple. I cannot think of another reason they decided to appease the iCrowd by making an iOS version before the wildly more popular Android. They must have a contract or something because I refuse to believe they are dumb enough to not see the stats on cell phone users. Far more Android out there these days.

    1. VoiceOfReason

      Steve Jobs was the largest Pixar shareholder. When Disney bought Pixar in 2006, Steve became the largest Disney shareholder. Hmmm… Steve owned more of Disney than anyone else… And was CEO of Apple Computer at the same time… Hmmm…

    2. The reason they did iPhone first is because more people with MONEY have iPhones. It has been shown over and over that Android users spend less, buy fewer apps, etc. It is the cheap mans phone.

      Why do you think they only make iPhone cases in the parks? iPhone users are much more willing to buy those cases, and spend money…

      They may do others later, but you test on your biggest paying customers first.

  12. This is pretty awesome, and a big improvement over the Mobile Magic app. Will be in WDW at the end of the month, can’t wait to try it.

  13. Straight from the Disney Travel Agent site:
    “Communications Manager, Disney Destinations on August 8, 2012
    Chris – We have a call out for more information and an update on what is being done to support Droid users. We’ll post an update as soon as we hear back!”

  14. MAYNARDS99

    Will WDW table service restaurants “hold back” extra seating exclusively for the My Disney Experience users?

  15. Jennifer

    Just downloaded the Droid version! Looks great. Heard Therese lots of updates to come in the next few months I can’t waiting try it out when I go in late Nov.

  16. SMCarlton

    Will we be charged monthly like the Mobile Magic App? I downloaded the “free” Mobile Magic app last summer and was then charged a monthly hidden fee by Verizon. I quickly deleted the app and ended my service.

  17. Mabel Stabile

    I would like to see bus schedules on My Disney Experience

    1. J-M

      There are no bus schedules at WDW. Busses start running about 45 min prior to park open to 45 after. Busses arrive to a location ever 15-20 min. At peak times busses run more often.

  18. Janey

    Can DVC Membership #’s be added to my Diz Experience profile? They already have my resort and restaurant reservations-both provided optionally. I wouldn’t mind providing my DVC number so that discounts could be automatic for park tix, restaurants, shopping and special events. Cast members could also personalize member visits with “Welcome Home” greetings.

  19. Very energetic post, I loved that bit. Will there be a
    part 2?

  20. You can capture your moments that will be stayed long for years
    and years. The marina yacht club is built on four
    beautiful marinas that are very beautifully made and
    are symbols of pure beauty. These are best enjoyed on board a boat
    rental Dubai.

  21. Hurrah, that’s what I was looking for, what a material!
    present here at this web site, thanks admin of this web page.

  22. Hiya! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?

    My web site looks weird when browsing from my iphone4.
    I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to correct this problem.
    If you have any suggestions, please share. Appreciate it!

  23. Thanks for the good writeup. It in reality was once a amusement account it.

    Look complicated to far brought agreeable from you!
    By the way, how can we be in contact?

  24. JParker

    WAIT! Is there no more official Disney app for Disneyland?! I had it before they discontinued the Mobile Magic. My understanding is that it is just for DW. WHy couldn’t they keep the old for DL whie they reveal the new for DW. Do I have to use an off brand app for wait times in DLand? I have looked for a little while now and found nothing.

  25. Yoս have a genuine talent with words.

  26. Decide to produce a family cookbook as being a gift to family and
    friends. You also can utilize the natural aloe-vera topically or internally
    depend upon your requirements. Crucial thing is because all
    agree the meals with this cookbook has good health, but nonetheless tastes good.

  27. Hi there Dear, are you actually visiting this
    site on a regular basis, if so then you will
    absolutely take good knowledge.

  28. WinMan

    No love for windows phone. Of course not. Hey, Disney, want me to come over and who you how to write cross-platform apps? Write once – deploy to iOs, Android and Win phone 8. Not hard to do.

  29. Hі to all, the contents existing at this web page are reallƴ awesome for people experience, well,
