Disneyland to receive new mobile app

Disneyland mobile app

Since Disneyland closed Mobile Magic a couple of years ago, the park has been completely devoid of official mobile applications.  Well the Disneyland Resort will finally join the tech age!

Disneyland mobile app

On August 4, 2015 Disneyland is set to launch a new mobile application for GooglePlay and Apple devices (nothing for all those other devices).  The app will offer many of the things you’ve become familiar with at Walt Disney World over the last 2 years with My Disney Experience.

Disneyland guests will be able to link their passes and use their phones to gain admission to Disneyland and California Adventure.  New Disneyland Resort tickets will also become RFID enabled in the near future.  There are no plans to use MagicBands like Walt Disney World offers.

Guests will be able to purchase park tickets directly through the new app, then the barcode on the mobile device will grant initial entry.  At the entry point a ticket will be printed.

What to Expect

  • Attraction descriptions and wait times
  • Character meet and greet locations (I expect this to be limited to what you’d find on the Times Guides)
  • Dining locations
  • Entertainment showtimes
  • Interactive map
  • Merchandise locations
  • Park Entrance
  • PhotoPass locations
  • Restroom locations

At this time the application will not support Fastpass, so guests will still need to use their physical park ticket to retrieve them from machines.   Premier Annual Passes will not be supported for park entry purposes using your mobile device!

This seems like Disneyland is making its first steps toward transitioning to Fastpass+ in their own way of implementing the service in coming months, but that is just supposition.  Seems a bit redundant not to connect everything to My Disney Experience, so guests can control multiple parks visits from a single application though.

Disney is expected to make an official announcement and providing the name this week.

  1. I know this has nothing to do with this post but I took your advice (well I think it was yours!) and I asked Baloo if he would sign for King Louie and Baloo told King Louie to stomp his foot down on my book then Baloo traced King Louies foot!
    That is so much better than an autograph!! Thanks!

  2. That is really exciting! I go to visit my brother since he works at WDW in Orlando only once a year or so but being able to have a app at Disneyland will be awesome! Can’t use it for the ap but still fabulous step forward! Thanks for the heads up :)
