The My Disney Experience Online App – 9 things you need to know

The My Disney Experience Online Guide and App make are the best (and most convenient) way to plan your Disney trip and manage all the details in one place. Whether you are on your computer, using the My Disney Experience Online Guide or on your phone, using the My Disney Experience Online App, you have all the tools and features you need for a stress-free Disney vacation planning.

Here are 9 things you need to know about Disney’s official app:

1. There are interactive, GPS-enabled maps that make exploring Walt Disney World Resort and browsing through attractions and dining options a real breeze. This big update to the My Disney Experience app was launched in 2016 and is one of the greatest features of the app. The navigation works pretty much like Google maps and helps you get directions both inside the Disney parks and across the entire Walt Disney World property!
2. With its help, you can not only purchase your theme park tickets, but you can also easily access real-time wait times (the coolest feature of the app according to seasoned Disney visitors). What’s more, you can check Disney character greetings available, parade show times, and many more Disney events!
3. A super handy tool for exhausted parents and (always) hungry toddlers and children is the ability to browse through restaurant menus, check working hours, find a table, and make dining reservations in minutes (and even change your current ones). If that’s not convenience, we don’t know what is! Plus, you can filter the restaurants results by cuisine, guest rating, price range (per person), service type, etc.
4. The My Disney Experience Online App makes it possible for you to share and download your Disney PhotoPass photos (and videos). But you will have to have purchased your Memory Maker first (it will allow you to download as many photos and videos as you want – taken by the Disney’s official PhotoPass photographers).
5. Here’s why this is the only app you’ll ever need during your Disney trip: it helps you search, sort, and even filter the many different Disney activities by criteria like wait times, distance and even height requirements! How cool is that?
6. The FastPass+ feature is beyond praise. Once you get your Disney park tickets, you will be able to choose FastPass+ experiences up to 30 days in advance! And if you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel, this period is stretched to up to 60 days prior to your check-in. And the best part? You can combine your inside information about wait times with your FastPass+ advantage – just make a reservation from your app in advance and attend the attraction during your return window!
7. The interactive park maps are super easy to use (and very convenient as well). They show so much more than the paper ones. What, with waiting times, attractions descriptions, dining options, characters and everything. You can also check your current location, which is very useful for inexperienced Disney visitors.
8. Another super convenient feature allows you to add reminders for performance times of fireworks, parades, etc. to your daily plans so you never miss the next sweet bite of Disney entertainment!
9. Oh, and you can share your Disney plans with others thanks to the Family & Friends feature. Because what is a great Disney experience if you can’t share it with the ones you love?
