As we rumored late last week, today Disney officially announced Mobile Magic, with screenshots of the Verizon-only app. The Disney Parks Blog has not indicated when it will be available, though we believe it will come sometime in November and be priced at $9.99 for a six-month period.
In this announcement they also show off more specific features, including FASTPASS return times, specific character meet and greet times, and Dining integration. One big note they mention is that the full-version app is only available while inside the park, even for current subscribers. That means, you can’t be in Epcot (or in, say, Buffalo) and checking wait times for the Magic Kingdom (presumably by verifying via GPS). Instead, they say:
“When you’re out of the park or on the soon-to-be-launched mobile Web site, you’ll see scaled-down wait time descriptions (now – moderate – high demand) FASTPASS availability (yes – limited availability – not available) and the list of character appearances will be limited.”
So what do you guys think? Are you a Verizon customer and anxious to get access to this?
