Free on iOS and Android
Developed in close collaboration with Walt Disney Imagineering, Play Disney Parks was designed for families and guests to enjoy together, with group play options that enable everyone to join in on the fun.
The app will be available for iOS and Android platforms and will be free to download.
"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 e-commerce 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."
Turn wait time into play time
The new app features in-queue games that allow guests to interact with the physical environment around them – from activating special show effects to uncovering magical surprises during their experience.
These experiences and quests can be found throughout the four theme parks at Walt Disney World Resort and the two theme parks at Disneyland Resort.
With the app, guests can take part in the following:
- Earn themed achievements
- Enjoy Disney songs via Apple Music
- Uncover Disney trivia and fun facts
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.
