For anyone visiting Walt Disney World Resort in these modern times, the My Disney Experience mobile app is an invaluable tool for trip planning and keeping things organized once you are in the park. While it had fairly humble beginnings a few years ago, much like Magicbands, the app has quickly become a real convenience for resort-goers.
Disney Parks announced this weekend that they have updated the My Disney Experience app to include even more convenience features and tools. Here is a quick excerpt from their blog post describing the changes:
The new My Disney Experience mobile app opens right to the park maps to help you find attractions, restaurants, restrooms and more. It makes it easier for you to navigate through our parks so you can spend more time enjoying the magic of Walt Disney World Resort. A new section called “Spotlight” highlights new park experiences and entertainment offerings to help you find out the latest and greatest happenings at the parks.
And when you stay at one of our Disney resorts, you will be able to use the new feature called “My Resort Dashboard,” which gives you access to your resort reservation details all in one place, including the ability to see room number, theme, building and floor once you have your room assignment. “My Resort Dashboard” even gives you directions to your resort using Disney transportation options, a map showing you the location of your room and a link to directly call the Resort Front Desk if you need further assistance during your stay.
