Disney Introduces New Walt Disney World Tech Fun

by on August 26, 2015

The past couple of weeks, Disney has rolled out with some very interesting tech opportunities that you may want to take advantage of either in the parks, or even at home, but more on that in a second.


The first update is that the Walt Disney World Resort finally has a Twitter account that is similar to the current @DisneylandToday Twitter account for Disneyland Resort. The new Twitter account will be known as @WDWToday. (Hmmmm…why does that sound familiar? By the way, no relation to a certain beloved podcast.) This official account will offers Guests suggestions, tips, and answers to their questions during their visit to the Walt Disney World Resort.

Moving on to the My Disney Experience app, a new upgrade has made where Guests will be able to take advantage of aspects of Disney PhotoPass including:

Memory Maker Price to Increase

by on December 2, 2014



Attention Memory Maker fans! For guests wishing to pre-purchase the photo package, be aware that it will be increasing in price by $20 tomorrow, December 3, 2014.  This will increase the Advance Purchase option from $149 to $169 (plus tax). The non-advanced purchase price will continue to cost $199.

For those who are unaware, Memory Maker is a special photo package, sold by Disney, that allows for everyone to be in the photos. Guests can accomplish this by having their family pictures taken by Disney PhotoPass photographers at various locations throughout the resort that guests can then download when they return home. In addition, as part of the Memory Maker package, guests will be able to download on-ride photos too.

In addition, Memory Maker has seen many changes over the past few months. Recent additions to the package have included on-ride videos of certain attractions (like Tower of Terror and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train) and special enhanced Animated Magic Shots. Both of these options are available for guests who purchased the special package to easily download when they return home. One would suspect that these new additions are part of the reason behind the price increase.

For guests who would like to purchase Memory Maker, but at the cheaper price, you can still purchase the package today for the price of $149, plus tax.

On-Ride Disney PhotoPass Photos Automatically Linked to Your My Disney Experience Account

by on October 28, 2014



One of the things that I’ve been looking forward to since the introduction of MyMagic+ and MagicBands was the ability to see your on-ride photos (and now videos) automatically added to your My Disney Experience online account for you to be able to view at home. Today, that option officially became a reality. Now guests who are wearing a MagicBand will have their on-ride photos automatically linked to your account and you don’t have to do a thing!

For those who don’t have a MagicBand, that’s ok; you can still have the option to add the photos to your account. Simply stop at the on-ride photo display at the end of the attraction and find your photo. From there, you’ll need to have your RFID ticket scanned at a touch point and the photos will be added to your account.

Guests will be able to see on-ride photos (and videos) added to their My Disney Experience account from the following attractions:

Walt Disney World Newsworthy Notes – 7/9/14

by on July 9, 2014

Hello all! Today, I bring just a few smaller things you may need to know that are currently taking place at Walt Disney World. In addition, I’ve got some details that you may need to know if you have a trip scheduled for later this fall. These are just a few minor notes that could be beneficial for you to know as you progress with your planning process. So, here we go:

  • First, we have a couple of refurbishments I wanted to note. Currently, It’s Tough To Be a Bug at Disney’s Animal Kingdom is closed until August 10, reopening on August 11. Moving over to the Magic Kingdom, the Walt Disney World Railroad will see maintenance work from September 28 through November 8, reopening on November 9. Finally, Disney’s Blizzard Beach water park will see its annual refurbishment from January 4 through March 14, reopening on March 15.
  • We all know that Kouzzina will be closing at Disney’s BoardWalk Inn on September 30. The location will be re-open later this year as an all new restaurant. In the interim, Flying Fish Cafe will be offering breakfast beginning on October 1 and lasting until December 7. Breakfast will be served from 7:30 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. and will include dishes like a waffle with tiramisu mascarpone, frittata with roasted red pepper and prosciutto, and soft polenta with fennel sausage.
  • Guests who are still cheering on their favorite World Cup teams will now have two more locations to watch the final games from. At Epcot, guests can choose to watch from the Festival Center (the former Wonders of Life Pavilion, which is located between Mission: SPACE and Ellen’s Energy Adventure). The Festival Center will open one hour before game timem and food and beverages will be sold at this location. Guests at Disney’s Animal Kingdom can visit Restaurantosaurus to view the remaining games. There are three games remaining, with the World Cup Final taking place at 3:00 p.m. EDT on Saturday, July 13.
  • The minimum age to travel alone on Disney’s Magical Express has been lowered. The age for unaccompanied minors is now 12. It had previously been 16.
  • Beginning on July 27, PhotoPass print packages will no longer be offered for sale table-side at select restaurants, including ‘Ohana, 1900 Park Fare, Chef Mickey’s, Disney’s Spirit of Aloha Dinner Show, Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue and Tusker House Restaurant. At Cindrella’s Royal Table and Akershus, PhotoPass print packages will be available until January 4, 2015. Beginning January 5, the inclusive photo package option will be discontinued. Once the PhotoPass print packages are discontinued, guests will need to view and purchase photos via the My Disney Experience app and website.

That’s it for this edition of Newsworthy Notes…what are your thoughts?
