New App - My Disney Experience
Disney has released a new free in-park app for Walt Disney World called My Disney Experience. And unlike the Mobile Magic app, it's actually available in the Canadian iTunes store day & date with our American friends! The release of the new app seems to coincide with the recent introduction of free wifi at the Magic Kingdom. It is expected that My Disney Experience, and a forthcoming Disneyland version of the app, will replace Disney Parks' Mobile Magic app.
My Disney Experience features some improvements over Mobile Magic. Most notably wait times can now be checked from wherever you are (Mobile Magic used GPS to restrict this function to users physically located near the parks). It appears some features tied to Disney's next-gen initiative are still in development at this time. And other features still appear to be only accessible when you're physically located at WDW. We will feature My Disney Experience soon in the CanaDisney App Report once we've had a chance to play around with it. For now, iOS users can download it from the iTunes Canada App Store. Sorry Android users, it appears it's iOS only at this time.
We're always on the lookout for Disney-related apps to try out and review. If you've got a favorite Disney-related app that you think we should feature there's no shortage of ways to contact us! You can comment here, tweet us @CanaDisney, post on our Facebook page, and send us an email at canadisney @ gmail.com.
