My Disney Experience is a must have app for your Disney World holiday. From showing your park hours, to letting you adjust reservations or check on room balances, My Disney Experience is really the only app you need for your trip! There are literally hundreds of reasons to love this must-have holiday app. However, my number one reason for loving this app is that is has made Disney holiday planning so much easier. With Disney Holiday planning left up to me, anything that makes it a little easier is a lifeline!
However, the app truly comes into its own when you arrive on-property. With plenty of wasy to easily manage your days in Disney, My Disney Experience is practically essential for your Disney Holiday. Here’s my list of reasons to love My Disney Experience!
Shows current wait times
My Disney Experience shows current wait times for open attractions in all Walt Disney World Theme Parks. While such a simple part of the app, it is one of its handiest features. You can fliter attractions by location, and also choose either map or list view for your results. Being able to quickly access current wait times has made our life a lot easier on holiday. We don’t have to stop and find a board to check queue lengths. Similarly, we no longer waste time walking towards an attraction only to find long queues, or even the ride being down. This handy little time saver can make your trip run a lot more smoothy by giving you the ability to quickly and easily check wait times from your phone.
Adjust Fastpass reservations
Another handy feature provided by My Disney Experience is the ability to adjust your Fastpass selections. Fastpass reservations can be made 60 or 30 days from your holiday. You can very easily make these reservations on the app. However, the ability to adjust these reservations on the go is one of the reasons I love the My Disney Experience app. Plans can very easily change throughout your holiday and the ability to adjust your fastpass selections around these changes, even when you’re in the parks, makes the app invaluable.You can cancel your selections, in order to pick different ones, or cahnge the time slot you originally chose.
Similarly, you can also use the app to select further fastpasses once you have used your first 3. Plis. if you find you haven’t been able to get a fastpass for one of your chosen experiences, keep checking back with the app, even during your stay, as it may become available.
A new feature on My Disney Experience is mobile ordering. To save you queueing during peak times for your meal at select quick service locations, you can place your order via the app and simply head to the pick up location when your food is ready! This handy feature can save you a lot of time waiting for your meals and leave you more time to squeeze in some extra rides! As this is a new feature, not all restaurants participate in mobile ordering, but remember to keep checking the app as more locations continue to be added! Mobile ordering currently has a downside however. At the minute, you are unable to use this service if you are availing of a Disney DIning Plan. I am hopeful that this will change in the future, however!
Keep track of dining credits
If you are on one of the Disney Dining Plans, My Disney Experince allows you to keep track of your credits. Being able to quickly check the amount of snack or meal credits you have used on the go can help you adjust your plans on the go, as well as giving you better control over your use of entitlements. Gone are the days of having to stop by concierge on a regular basis to keep a tract of your Dining Plan credits! Similarly, you can also keep track of your Room Balance via My Disney Experience. This is one of the features I love as it allows you to keep on top of your spending and stick to your budget!
See Photopass Pictures
My Disney Experience also allows you to access all of your photopass pictures. Any ride pictures, or those taken by a photopass photographer can be seen on the app. This is such a handy eay to access all of your holiday snaps. The best bit is that most picutre are uploaded prompty after being taken, so you don’t have to wait long to see them! If you have purchased Memory Maker you can also download these picutres straight from the app. There is nothing better than having quick access to all of these photogrpahs, especially given that these special picutres will include every family member!
There is so much to love about My Disney Experience. What is most exciting is that new features are being added all the time. I am excitied to see what is added with each and every app update. I would highly recommend My Disney Experience to anyone planning a Walt Disney World holiday. It is free, easy to set up and links to all your Walt Disney World reservations. It will make every asepct of your Disney holiday more easy to manage!
