Guests can soon explore Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort in a whole new way using the all-new Play Disney Parks app! Coming this summer on iOS and Android, guests can play in the parks like never before using this soon-to-launch mobile app to access exclusive experiences at both locations through activities that interact with the surrounding environment. The app will be free to download.

With the touch of a button, wait time turns into play time with family and friends at certain locations. And the more you explore in Disney parks, the more there is to discover on the app. This is just the latest way we are making a visit to our parks even more fun and memorable in new and innovative ways.

Since the launch of My Disney Experience at Walt Disney World Resort in 2013, we continue to reinvent digital offerings at our parks around the world. The My Disney Experience app, our guests’ go-to vacation companion, has continued to evolve – including the Get Directions feature, Online Check-In and the recently launched Digital Key. Guests are also loving the Disneyland App, Disney MaxPass and soon mobile order at Disneyland Resort – currently available at Walt Disney World – and we’re excited to bring this latest innovation to the parks!

We can’t wait to share with you everything this first-of-its-kind Disney app has to offer. To receive the latest updates, follow these pages for Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World, and keep your eyes on the Disney Parks Blog as we get closer to launch this summer.

  • Very excited to.know while waiting in line for Disney attractions we have a new way of keeping us occupied while we wait awesome!!!!

  • This is awesome! Disney setting the bar extra high as always, can’t wait to try it out for my next trip!

  • Just got to the parks for our vacation! Send me the beta and I’ll test it out! 😉

  • Any more news on when this is available? My familywill be there the end week ofJune, any way to be a Beta Tester? 🙂

  • This application sounds fun but similar to Virtual Magic Kingdom 😊

  • Please release soon! I’m so excited for this, but am hoping it’s released in time for my trip 🙂

  • I am 100% behind this…as long as Disneyland ups their Wi-Fi game.

  • Will it become an update to the current app or will this be a new one where we have to download it from the app store?

  • Sounds like a great way to stay entertained while waiting on line. Can Disney improve the WiFi service as it has been unreliable throughout the parks. I get dropped signals and/or no signal.

  • I would be happy to help test when I’m there in a few weeks ; )

  • I wish they would just bring back VMK and not add games to their current park app. This seems like it is going to drain your battery a lot faster while at the parks.

  • Sounds really cool. I’m looking forward to hearing more information.

  • I can’t wait! I like that it will cover both parks!

  • Would be a great platform for introducing people to some of the hidden lore in the parks.

  • So is this going to be in addition to the existing apps or will it take the place of them?

  • This better not interact with dark rides while on dark rides…

  • How cool is this!? Can’t wait to see all that it has to offer!
