NEWS: Play Disney Parks App Debuts at Disney World

Disney released a Play Disney Park app that will bring to life unique interactive experiences that enable guests of all ages to access a wide range of activities including themed games, Disney trivia, digital achievements, music and so much more – whether they are playing on Main Street, U.S.A. or waiting in line at beloved attractions. Catch all the details below.





 

1 – New Digital Entertainment Offering

Developed in close collaboration with Walt Disney Imagineering, Play Disney Parks was designed for families and guests to enjoy together, with group play options that enable everyone to join in on the fun while staying fully engaged in the immersive environments of Disney parks. The app will be available for iOS and Android platforms and will be free to download.

“Play Disney Parks represents the next step in how we use innovative digital technology to enhance the guest experience in our parks,” said Vivek Sharma, Senior Vice President of Digital Guest Experience and eCommerce for Parks, Experiences, and Consumer Products. “The app is designed to help guests immerse themselves in the Disney stories they know and love in a whole new way.”

Here is a video highlighting the new app:

2 – Turn Wait Time into Play Time

With an imaginative set of in-queue games, wait time will turn into playtime at select in-park locations as guests play games that interact with the physical environment around them – from activating special show effects to uncovering magical surprises during their experience.

Joy-filled experiences and quests can be found throughout the four theme parks at Walt Disney World Resort and the two theme parks at Disneyland Resort, including discovering happy thoughts with Tinker Bell before setting sail on Peter Pan’s Flight, embarking on galactic training missions prior to boarding Space Mountain and even playing a whimsical series of mini-games with Buzz, Woody and the “Toy Story” gang at new Disney·Pixar areas opening this summer:

  • Walt Disney World Resort: At Toy Story Land in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, guests can extend their play time at the new Slinky Dog Dash coaster with “Andy’s Board Game Blast,” a fun game that Andy has crafted in his backyard from some spare toys, cardboard boxes, and his own imagination. Guests visiting this new land will also be able to experience “Playset Party,” a game in which they help assemble the Toy Story Mania! playset.
  • Disneyland ResortAt the newly reimagined Pixar Pier in Disney California Adventure, guests can also experience “Playset Party” while progressing through the queue of Toy Story Mania! and preparing to take a spin on this guest-favorite attraction.

3 – Earn Themed Achievements

Guests signed into their Disney account, available to guests 13 and over, can also earn, collect and share uniquely themed achievements, rewarded for experiences both in the app and across the Disney parks. Whether venturing to certain attractions in the parks or accomplishing an impressive feat at an in-queue game, guests are able to use this feature to showcase their in-park experiences and Disney fandom while filling their “Playfile” with these special achievements.





 

4 – Listen to the Songs and Sounds of Disney

Guests will be able to celebrate their Disney vacation with an enchanting audio experience featuring the music of Disney and the classic sounds of the Disney theme parks. Before, after or during their next visit, guests can listen to Apple Music in the Play Disney Parks app to access curated playlists inspired by beloved lands, attractions, and characters – and some favorite memories too.*

5 – Uncover Disney Trivia and Fun Facts

Through the Disney trivia feature, guests can band together before, during or after their visit to see if they have what it takes to become Disney trivia masters as they discover fun facts about their favorite theme parks.

The new Play Disney Parks app is the latest addition to the Disney Parks digital app portfolio. Play Disney Parks complements the popular My Disney Experience app at Walt Disney World Resort and the Disneyland App at Disneyland Resort, the convenient places for guests to plan their visit, access important information such as attraction wait times and park hours and utilize services like mobile food ordering.

And this is just the beginning. Play Disney Parks is planned to grow and evolve over time with new experiences and offerings at Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort, including at the eagerly anticipated Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, coming to Disneyland Resort in summer 2019 and Walt Disney World Resort in late fall 2019.

*Some features require Apple Music subscription and are only available on iOS devices. Separate terms and conditions apply.

About Chad & Cindy Nykamp

Chad and Cindy met during their college days and both being huge Disney fans, it was a match made in heaven. They took their first family vacation to Disney World in 2004. Chad had gone as a child, but this would be Cindy’s first trip-a trip which she had dreamed of since she was a little girl. The trip was magical and began a Disney obsession that hasn’t stopped since. They traveled back year after year, sometimes many times a year. They watched their three kids grow up at Disney and inherit the same love of Disney. In 2010, their dream of living in Orlando became a reality. With Disney World as their backyard playground, they enjoyed even more time in the parks. Friends and family soon made them their go-to-people for Disney advice. With their love of Disney and desire to share that love and knowledge they gleaned over the years, they decided to launch DisneyLists.com in August of 2015. They still can’t believe how lucky they are to have such an amazing opportunity and will continue to share Disney with anyone who will listen!
