Wireless subscribers that puts a personal tour guide right in the
palms of their hands.

Disney Parks-Verizon Mobile Magic utilizes GPS technology to provide
valuable information to Guests such as attraction wait times,
character locations and theme park maps.

The mobile application is available for download and purchase
beginning in November for $9.99 per six months of service. To purchase
the application, Guests can text MAGIC to 2777 from their Verizon
phone.

Mobile Web sites, m.disneyland.com or m.disneyworld.com, also will
allow  Guests with a browsing-enabled phone to access limited Disney
park information such as park hours, entertainment schedules and
dining information.

If Guests experience functionality issues with their phone or the
application, they should use the “Click-to-Call” function on their
mobile phone or call Verizon Customer Care by dialing 661 from any
Verizon phone or 1-800-922-0204 from any other phone.

  • The websites do not appear to be live yet. My browser can’t find the servers. I am not a verizon costomer, but I look forward to trying the mobile websites.

  • WooHOO!! Can’t wait to check out this app. My Verizon Omnia is making it’s first trip to WDW at the end of November. The wait times feature is brilliant, if it really works. I’m pumped!

    Even this does not lure me back to the most awful customer service experience of my adult life. That and I have an iPhone.

  • Ugggg, you would think they would make this universal so iPhone lovers could take advantage of this!!! Very frustrating. I do have an app. for wait times but am told it is not necessarily reliable. Will find out in December.

  • $9.99 for six months? No thanks, I’ll just use my mobile browser to access free sites (and TouringPlans.com of course!)

  • $9.99 per six months? That is nuts. I have 15 Disney apps on my iphone (wait times – which also lets you submit your own when there, GPS enabled park maps, park hours/shedules, hidden mickeys, park secrets/tips/history, etc.) These were each a one-time fee of .99 cents and I got to choose and pay for only the data I wanted (which is all of it for me). Verizon – what a rip off.

    • Are you kidding me? AT&T + iPhone is the biggest ripoff out there. You paid alot for yoru phone, and are definitely paying alot for your minutes and data plan.

      And you paid $15 for 15 apps. I would hope it would not take 15 different apps to navigate around Disney.

  • I’m glad Beth loves her iPhone. But do any of those 15 Disney apps she only paid a buck for let her customize her screen background, or choose her own music for a ringtone? Sorry, but not everyone is in love with the iPhone. Those who aren’t, are probably very grateful to get something, anything that we can use to help soothe our Disney itch. We’re also happy to have access to a data network that’s not bogged down on a good day.

  • Helpful information in this post. It´s astounding are you wanting good makes involving computers are available in the market. Hope your designers might improve each and every month the actual tech specs to make them faster.

  • Thank you for any other wonderful article. The place else may just anybody get that kind of information in such an ideal approach of writing? I’ve a presentation subsequent week, and I’m on the search for such information.
