Disney has just announced the release of the all new Show Your Disney Side app in the Apple iTunes store that allows you to become a special Disney character. You can transform yourself into a variety of famous Disney Parks characters.
Show Your Disney Side is now available to download for free and it looks like a fun new interactive toy to play with on your Apple devices. The app brings your Disney Side – that side of you that comes out to play the moment you step through the gates at Disney Parks – to life like never before, transforming you into characters from our most popular park attractions and experiences.
With the Show Your Disney Side app, you can become an X-Wing Pilot from the Star Tours – The Adventures Continue attraction, a swashbuckler from the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction, a princess from “Frozen” and even a favorite Disney villain, Maleficent. And If you visit Disneyland Resort or Walt Disney World Resort, you can unlock special Haunted Mansion characters like the Hitchhiking Ghost and Madame Leota. It’s also possible to unlock these special characters by sharing three creations on Facebook or Twitter.
Once you download the app from the Apple iTunes store, facial mapping technology transforms you into a 3D moving character. To begin, the first step is to snap a selfie or have someone take a photo of your face. Here are a few tips:
- Smile big – but without your teeth showing.
- Make sure your hair isn’t blocking your face.
- Try to take your photo in front of a plain background.
You can personalize your Disney Side character with different costumes and frames. Then, by tapping or swiping the screen, your Disney Side will come to life with special effects, unique for each character. To share your creation, simply press the share button on the app and pick your favorite social network. Check it out at DisneySideApp.com
