We are so excited! The brand new Play Disney Parks mobile app will debut on June 30, 2018. This app will be functional at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World. Designed for guests and guest families to enjoy together, there will be group play instead of wait time with all new interactive experiences and activities created for many attraction queues.
“Guests can play in the parks like never before using this soon-to-launch mobile app to access exclusive experiences … through activities that interact with the surrounding environment,” according to a post on the official Disney Parks Blog.
The Play Disney Parks app will be a free download available for iOS and Android devices.
“Play Disney Parks represents the next step in how we use innovative digital technology to enhance the guest experience in our parks,” said Vivek Sharma, Senior Vice President of Digital Guest Experience and eCommerce for Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products. “The app is designed to help guests immerse themselves in the Disney stories they know and love in a whole new way.”
- Walt Disney World Resort: At the soon-to-be-unveiled Toy Story Land in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, guests can extend their play time at the new Slinky Dog Dash coaster with “Andy’s Board Game Blast,” a fun game that Andy has crafted in his backyard from some spare toys, cardboard boxes and his own imagination. Guests visiting this new land will also be able to experience “Playset Party,” a game in which they help assemble the Toy Story Mania! playset.
- Disneyland Resort: At the newly reimagined Pixar Pier in Disney California Adventure, guests can also experience “Playset Party” while progressing through the queue of Toy Story Mania! and preparing to take a spin on this guest-favorite attraction.
- Earn Themed Achievements
Guests signed into their Disney account, available to guests 13 and over, can also earn, collect and share uniquely themed achievements, rewarded for experiences both in the app and across the Disney parks. Whether venturing to certain attractions in the parks or accomplishing an impressive feat at an in-queue game, guests are able to use this feature to showcase their in-park experiences and Disney fandom while filling their “Playfile” with these special achievements.
Listen to the Songs and Sounds of Disney
Guests will be able to celebrate their Disney vacation with an enchanting audio experience featuring the music of Disney and the classic sounds of the Disney theme parks. Before, after or during their next visit, guests can access Apple Music in the Play Disney Parks app to listen to curated playlists inspired by beloved lands, attractions and characters – and some favorite memories too.*
Uncover Disney Trivia and Fun Facts
Through the Disney trivia feature, guests can band together before, during or after their visit to see if they have what it takes to become Disney trivia masters as they discover fun facts about their favorite theme parks.
The new Play Disney Parks app is the latest addition to the Disney Parks digital app portfolio. Play Disney Parks complements the popular My Disney Experience app at Walt Disney World Resort and the Disneyland App at Disneyland Resort, the convenient places for guests to plan their visit, access important information such as attraction wait times and park hours and utilize services like mobile food ordering.
And this is just the beginning. Play Disney Parks is planned to grow and evolve over time with new experiences and offerings at Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort, including at the eagerly anticipated Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, coming to Disneyland Resort in summer 2019 and Walt Disney World Resort in late fall 2019. For the latest updates, follow the dedicated Play Disney Parks app pages – Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort – as well as the #PlayDisneyParks hashtag on social media.
