  • The app worked in the very beginning of the show – it died during the Lion King song.

  • It didn’t work for us either. Disappointing

  • I’m like most people here – kept hearing the “Use the Applause App!” announcements during the show while in my hands, that same app just spun and spun… “listening”….What a disappointment.

  • Tried to use the Applause app but it didn’t do anything. Seems I wasn’t the only one that couldn’t get it to work. 🙁

  • Unfortunately, the Applause app never synced with tonight’s Disneyland 60th Anniversary show. However, I recorded the show and will try the app again when rewatching.

  • Probably would have been nice had the “Applause app” actually worked. Sad, Disney…very sad.

  • only if the app worked, looked like it didnt work for anyone.

  • App doesn’t work. Click start goes to listening to tv then back to start page. Tried on mulitple devices..

  • I forgot to record this and missed it. Can I see it on social media? I don’t subscribe to ABCW to watch it on demand.

  • Couldn’t get it to sync, anyone have any success?

  • I can’t get the applause app to work. I’ve tried the entire show! Just cuts off.

  • I can not get the app to work. =-( I press start, it says it’s listening for tv, then goes back to the start screen. I was able to get it to work right at the beginning, but accidentally exited out, and now can’t get back in. Bummed!

  • It’s not working 🙁

  • Is ANYONE having any luck with this app????

  • Shame the app just does not pick up the sound. I completely missed the extras during the show

  • Took care of it finally just deleted the app several times it’s not working so no need to waste space on my phone so disappointing.

  • Downloaded the app & I live in Ga, USA. App didn’t seem to work just kept saying it was listening for the tv which I even turned up. I allowed access to everything setting it up. Such a disappointment when you see the sound line come alive then your back at the start option cause it doesn’t interact.

  • The app isn’t working ?

  • Send update to fix app

  • App not working

  • App not working
    Cmon Disney

  • My family is trying to use the app while watching the 60th Celebration but it fails listening to the tv part. We all have iphone 6’s HELP! We want to be more a part of the festivities!!!

  • Most awesome show ever

  • Super excited

  • Is this Disney applause app working for anyone? All I get is a screen saying it is listening for TV. Help Please and Thank You.

  • Wish the applause app was working! ?


  • Love it

  • I also live in Canada and I cannot find the app either. It would be nice we could have access to the app too.

  • I live in Canada and can’t find the app in the app store. Is not not available here?

  • wish i had cable now

  • I’m really looking forward to this. It’s been a long time since Disneyland has been featured in a TV special all its own.

  • Can’t wait!

  • Can I view this in the UK, will
    It be streamed?

  • any chance this will be airing in England? would be a shame for the UK Disney Geeks to miss out on this celebration!

  • Too bad in Mexico can’t use this app

  • I plan on being at Disneyland on Sunday. Will there be any showings inside the park?

  • Will the show be streaming anywhere on Sunday night?

  • What’s the difference between a reply and a comment?

  • Looking forward to it:)
