The all-new Play Disney Parks app is now available for download on iOS and Android devices. The app promises to “turn wait time into play time” by providing a variety of in-park experiences that are meant to supplement your Walt Disney World experience. Here are the download links:
The app features interactive games for both Disneyland and Walt Disney World, including over 70 unlockable achievements between both resorts.
In addition to general trivia, select attractions offer an enhanced interactive game. Here are the supported Walt Disney World attractions at the time of launch:
- Peter Pan’s Flight – Off To Neverland
- Space Mountain – Rocket Race
- Tree of Life – Animal Expeditions
- Maharajah Jungle Trek – Animal Expeditions
- Future World – Soarin’ Challenge
- World Showcase – Agent P’s World Showcase Adventure
- Slinky Dog Dash – Andy’s Board Game Blast!
- Toy Story Mania! – Playset Party
While we’re still yet to try the app in the park, reports are that the games will interact with some queue elements to take the experience of waiting in line to the next level.
Throughout the app, there are specially crafted playlists that interface with Apple Music. These playlists contain a mixture of music that fits the theme of the area where the music icon is located, for example Main Street USA.
While the amount of attractions featuring interactive games may be modest, there are also attractions and experiences that have unlockable achievements. These achievements only require you to have bluetooth enabled and the achievement will be added once you finish the attraction or experience. Achievements don’t really do anything besides serve as a badge of honor.
… and More
