Mobile Applications for Disney

Looking for some great mobile applications to enhance your Disney vacation once you're inside the parks? These can be valuable tools to help you save time, organize your itineraries and keep track of dining reservations. Here are a few of our favorites:

  • Lines from Touring Plans - allows access to the great features of Touring Plans (e.g., personalized plans, crowd calendar, etc.) and the ability to view current wait times for all Disney attractions. Click Here for more information.
  • WDW Dining - this official Disney mobile site allows you to search for and make reservations - great for making a reservation on the go if your park plans change. To access the page, simply direct your phone's browser to http://disneyworld.com/dining and it will load the mobile website. Note that dining reservations can also be made through the Mobile Magic app discussed below if you are a Verizon customer.
  • Disney's Mobile Magic on Verizon (now free for Verizon customers!) - a great official Disney app that features park maps, character locations, daily events, weather, etc. Find out more information on Mobile Magic Here.
  • Official Disney mobile website - a good alternative to Mobile Magic for non-Verizon customers. Just direct your phone's browser to http://disneyworld.com/.
  • Tripit - this non-Disney site/app helps you plan itineraries for all of your trips, not just WDW. We like to use it to store our Advanced Dining Reservation details (e.g., confirmation numbers), hotel information, etc. Find out more information on Tripit Here.
