That’s right, Mobile Magic, our first official Disney Parks app, has hit the iPhone and it’s now ready for you to download for free from iTunes.

And Disney Parks and Verizon have another exciting update to share today. If you’re a Verizon Wireless customer, you now have access to new premium features, including videos and games within the app.

Verizon Premium Features

  • More than 100 behind-the-scenes, seasonal, sneak peak videos.
  • ‘Pirates’ games that test your knowledge of the famous attraction.
  • Guess the character before the timer expires with Disney Character Puzzle.
  • Find out which character is most like you with the Disney Character Quiz.

If you haven’t tried the app out yet, you should. It offers accurate wait times as well as official Disney FASTPASS return times and availability for the park you’re in. The same system that powers wait times and Disney FASTPASS in the park, powers this app. With the new iPhone version, the wait times are also integrated into the Park maps, making it easier for you to decide where to go next.

Also, there are GPS-enabled park maps to get you to your favorite characters, mobile games and more to explore, including the ability to make dining reservations.

Not an iPhone user? Disney Mobile Magic is also available on a wide variety of feature phones as well as Android phones.

Go try the app and let us know what you think in the comments.

*Message and data rates may apply. Availability subject to handset limitations and features may vary by handset or service provider. Coverage not available everywhere. If you’re under 18, get your parents’ permission first.

Christine from KY on February 24th, 2012 at 10:14 am

Finally! I can’t wait to play with the app when I visit Disneyland next month!

Rodrigo on February 24th, 2012 at 10:15 am

Wow, great news! But the parks need wi-fi. As an International Guest, I can’t use my data plan overseas, so most of the features would be useless to me.

Jean from QC on February 24th, 2012 at 10:19 am

Please make it available on the Canadian App store as well!

Terese from IL on February 24th, 2012 at 10:25 am

Yay! Thanks, Disney! Now I just need to start planning my next trip to WDW so I can take full advantage of it. ;^)

Another vote for the Canadian app store!

Minesh from CA on February 24th, 2012 at 10:39 am

Android PLEASE!!! I cannot stress enough to important it would be to have this app on the Android platform!! Is there any plans for Android development of this app?!

8

Tom on February 24th, 2012 at 10:50 am

Will this be coming to the UK app store, Thomas?

Erin from ON on February 24th, 2012 at 10:59 am

Definitely needs to be rolled out to the Canadian App store!

10

Rebecca on February 24th, 2012 at 11:02 am

Is this app only forVerizon Wireless customers? I’m not seeing it in the App Store :(

11

Julien from QC on February 24th, 2012 at 11:12 am

And another vote for the canadian App Store…
I’m planning to go Disneyland Resort this autumn and that would be great to be able to use this app :-)

Otto on February 24th, 2012 at 11:15 am

I always turn my phone off when I´m on vacation.
I keep using the nice information screens in the park.

13

Eric from MA on February 24th, 2012 at 11:18 am

When will the Verizon requirement be dropped? You have a lot of AT&T and Sprint iPhone users that would love to have access to this app!

14

Lyne from QC on February 24th, 2012 at 11:20 am

What about us Canadians??? I was so happy to read the “great news” and now I learn that it is not available in Canada??? So sad :(

15

Myles from UT on February 24th, 2012 at 11:28 am

I agree with Rodrigo; wi-fi in the parks would be great! I don’t have an iphone, but an ipod touch so wi-fi would be great!

16

Katherine from ON on February 24th, 2012 at 11:33 am

Another vote for Canadian iphones!!

17

Sean on February 24th, 2012 at 11:54 am

I’m so glad the VZW requirement is gone! I think it is fine that you give the VZW some bonus features but I really am glad to see this and I can’t wait to use it in June!

James on February 24th, 2012 at 11:59 am

I can’t download this because it’s not available on the UK store.. Are there any plans to release it here? I keep up with all the blogs and would love for more things to be available here for when we do come over to Disney…

Darren from NJ on February 24th, 2012 at 12:04 pm

Just installed it. It looks very promising even on ATT!

20

Heather from KY on February 24th, 2012 at 12:42 pm

This just made my Friday!

21

Amanda on February 24th, 2012 at 12:50 pm

FINALLY!! This is so perfect, just in time for Wednesday!!

22

Michael on February 24th, 2012 at 12:50 pm

Can’t wait to use it on our next visit!

23

Jennifer on February 24th, 2012 at 12:56 pm

Any hope for Blackberry users?

24

Traci on February 24th, 2012 at 12:56 pm

I just got home from Disney World last Saturday! We missed each other by one week! At least I have it for next time.

25

Douglas from MD on February 24th, 2012 at 1:09 pm

Thanks so much for making this available for non Verizon users!!! Looking forward to using it on our next trip to Walt Disney World!

26

Anna from TX on February 24th, 2012 at 1:13 pm

This is wonderful! I’ve been hoping this would come to I-phone users, and I’m in the middle of planning our next trip. I’ve downloaded it and can’t wait to streamline our vacation.

27

Jennifer on February 24th, 2012 at 1:48 pm

Yippee! I’ve been waiting for this to be available for iPhone users. THANK YOU!

28

Michele on February 24th, 2012 at 1:56 pm

Any possibility the app will become available for Windows Mobile phone users? I’d love to see it for Windows!

29

Lauren on February 24th, 2012 at 2:04 pm

FINALLY!!! WOOOO :D

30

James on February 24th, 2012 at 2:13 pm

So excited it’s now available to other networks (not just Verizon)! This’ll be helpful when I head down in August!

31

Allison from NC on February 24th, 2012 at 2:18 pm

AWESOME! I was there last week and tried to find it on my Iphone and couldn’t. Now I have got it!! Wahoo

32

Amanda from TN on February 24th, 2012 at 3:03 pm

As an Android user, I would love to have this app. Will it ever be avaiable for Sprint customers along with all other cellular companies?

33

Evan from BC on February 24th, 2012 at 3:05 pm

Please make this available for Canadians :(

34

brendan from CA on February 24th, 2012 at 3:12 pm

It looks promising, but the fact that you can’t check wait times etc, from outside the park is a big disappointment. I get why Disney wouldn’t want us to know, but its a big bummer if you’re trying to plan your trip. Looks like I’ll have to use both this one and MouseWait still. :(

35

Brian from CA on February 24th, 2012 at 3:37 pm

Does this app alow be to accues to DLSW wifi spots through the parks or if the add wifi to guests in the park? No, than its not usable to the average user. You might as well just grab the map as you enter the park

36

jay on February 24th, 2012 at 4:22 pm

Any date for the Canadian release?

37

NATALIE on February 24th, 2012 at 4:24 pm

downloaded it! and will be using while we are there for 5 days next week!!

38

Crystal on February 24th, 2012 at 4:59 pm

Please make this available to your international friends. We’re app-less in Canada!

39

Christine from CA on February 24th, 2012 at 6:17 pm

It’s a shame this app is only for iPhone. Those of us with iPod Touch and/or iPad would love to be able to join the fun, too. I hope you’ll be making this a universal app very soon!

40

Bethany from ON on February 24th, 2012 at 6:40 pm

Another request from Canada, please make it available for us too! (and Disney Visa card while I am asking for favours!)

41

Katie from QC on February 24th, 2012 at 8:08 pm

Another vote for the Canadian app store!

42

Cory from AB on February 24th, 2012 at 8:32 pm

Would if I could but I can’t so I won’t. Another vote for making this available in Canada.

43

Mike on February 24th, 2012 at 8:36 pm

Sigh. Canadian app store soon please? Thanks

44

Joe on February 24th, 2012 at 9:04 pm

Just got a Verizon iPhone 2 weeks ago. They need to change the Haunted Mansion photo, they have a Haunted Mansion Holiday photo. Looking forward to trying it out in DL and DCA soon.

45

Cindy on February 24th, 2012 at 9:52 pm

Thanks for making this useable for att users. Can’t wait to use it on our trip next February. I would like to vote for Wi-fi in the parks too.

46

Randy on February 25th, 2012 at 12:22 am

Thank you so much for this app now on the iTunes store for the iPhone!!! I have been wanting to download this app ever since I noticed an ad for it on the Disneyland park map, that I picked up this past July while I was there at the Disneyland Resort. I can’t wait to use it the next time I am at Disneyland again!

47

Antonio on February 25th, 2012 at 8:37 am

Please, oh please make this app available internationally. I live in Australia but visit regularly disneyworld and would love to have this app on our next vist!!!

48

Tracie on February 25th, 2012 at 9:06 am

This is available on other platforms as well. I got it for my android at the market.

49

Laureen from TX on February 25th, 2012 at 10:55 am

Like a precious post, I can’t seem to find this in the app store. Any ideas?

50

Jayne on February 25th, 2012 at 11:30 am

Just downloaded it and it looks GREAT! Can’t wait to use it:) Lots of useful tools – dining availability and reservations (parks and resorts), ride descriptions and heights, maps with a compass:) NO MORE PULLING OUT PAPER MAPS AND SCHEDULES!
