Disney Vacation Connection Desktop Widget

Today, we’re sharing a sneak peek at the new Disney Vacation Connection desktop widget –- that’s it…right there with Pluto.

It’ll be easy to try. Just download the widget to your desktop (free of charge) and you can customize planning for your next vacation, find special events and ticket prices and create a personalized Disney vacation countdown. Here’s a quick walk through showing how it’ll work.

  • Any idea when this will be available?

  • Ok, I was probably one of the first people to upload this when it was first announced and I was never able to open it because of the bug, and getting stuck at 30%.

    Well today I tried again and was super excited to see I can open it. But now I keep on getting the huge blurb “The Disney Vacation Connection.EXE- Corrupt Disk: the file system on this disk is corrup and unuseable please run chkdsk utilty on the colume C:”

    Could someone please explain to me what this means and how I can get it to not flash constantly on thre bottom of my screen? Thanks!

  • YAY!! this is exciting! We will be taking our very first trip not only as a family but this is mine and hubbys first time going to disney world also! cant wait to use this! we still have a little over 10 months before we go.

  • Looks awesome but can’t seem to get it, it always says we’re working on it come back later. Leaving in 96 days this is the time to get some use from it. Any word on mobile magic for BlackBerry? PLEASE!!!! Can’t belive it’s only available on regular phones. I can’t even get it on our sons Samsung intensity. :^(

  • It’s really quite surprising that a bug this bad wasn’t caught in testing.

  • Let us know, when its up and running, looking forward to this new Disney Application !
