For those of you planning your summer Walt Disney World vacations, you’ll want to make sure you download (or update) to the newly redesigned My Disney Experience app!
With the updated My Disney Experience app, Guests will still be able to experience all things Disney. So you can still access FastPass+ information, wait times, dining information, PhotoPass photos, maps, merchandise, and more, but it’s all so much more spelled out. The app now opens to the park maps to help guests find attractions, restaurants, restrooms things easier.
The app now also has a new feature called “My Resort Dashboard.” This helps Guests who may be staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel access their reservation details all in one place. My Resort Dashboard gives directions to the resort, a map showing the location of a Guest’s room (once you know what it is) and a link to directly call the Resort Front Desk.
There’s also the new “Spotlight” section in the My Disney Experience app, which highlights new park experiences and entertainment offerings.
Take a look at what the new app has in store for Guests.
In looking at the app at first glance, it immediately has a different feel. The design is certainly more streamlined. It’s easy to check all of your vacation details all in one place. I really do like that you can see your resort information now too. It makes it so much easier, especially because I often forget my actual room number and previously would always have to take a picture to remember.
I also like that all of my information is in one easy to view spot. Now I can see what my dining reservations, FastPass+ reservations, and hotel reservations are right in one area!
I especially like that the app now tells you where PhotoPass photographers are. Since I have an Annual Pass and have Memory Maker included with it, I am constantly stopping to get my photo taken. This guide is going to be so helpful!
At the top, you can scroll through really easily to see exactly what you are looking for. So whether it’s wait times, characters, restroom locations, events, or more, it’s quite simple to access.
Overall, it seems like a very clean update. I hope it isn’t as buggy as the last iteration, as I constantly had issues where it would freeze up or not allow me to see what I was actually looking at. I’m also hoping that the simpler design will make it move a little faster. (This was all especially problematic when I was trying to make additional FastPasses while in the park.)
I’m really anxious to see how this updated My Disney Experience app actually works out when I’m visiting the Walt Disney World Resort.
