With only fourteen days until my Walt Disney World vacation, I researched the new Play Disney Parks app. This app looks like so much fun! It only works when you are at a Disney Park. And apparently it works at Disneyland and Walt Disney World. The article below explains how it all works. (Edited for content that applies to WDW)
Play Disney Parks App Debuts at Walt Disney World Resort on June 30
by Thomas Smith, Editorial Content Director, Disney Parks
We’re so excited to share this news with you! The all-new Play Disney Parks mobile app will make its official debut at Walt Disney World Resort on June 30. The app will be free to download, and guests can pre-order today on the App Store and Google Play to have the app automatically downloaded on their device.
As we previously shared, the #PlayDisneyParks app was designed for families and guests to enjoy together. With group play that enables everyone to join in on the fun, guests will turn wait time into play time with all-new interactive experiences and activities created for select attraction queues, including: “Playset Party” at Toy Story Mania! in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, “Off to Neverland” at Peter Pan’s Flight at Magic Kingdom, “Rocket Race” at Space Mountain at Magic Kingdom, and “Andy’s Boardgame Blast!” at the new Slinky Dog Dash coaster at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. And there’s even more to explore in the app!
Guests signed into their Disney account (available to guests 13 and over) can also earn, collect and share uniquely themed achievements, rewarded for playing games, answering trivia, completing challenges and experiencing select attractions across Walt Disney World Resort. And with the Disney trivia feature, there’s sure to be something for everyone to enjoy as guests can discover fun facts about their favorite theme parks.
This first-of-its-kind Disney app will also allow guests to celebrate the songs of Disney in a whole new way. Access Apple Music®* from within the app to tap into a curated audio experience featuring official playlists inspired by beloved theme park lands, attractions and characters – and some favorite memories too. Apple Music subscribers will even be able to add favorite Disney tracks direct to their Apple Music library allowing them to live and re-live the magic of Disney parks music at home.
And this is just the beginning. The Play Disney Parks app will evolve over time with new experiences and offerings, including the eagerly anticipated Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, coming to Walt Disney World Resort in late fall 2019.
For the latest information and updates, follow the dedicated Play Disney Parks pages –Walt Disney World Resort – and be sure to order the app.
