So cool! Disney Mobile Magic


#1

I just found this on allears:

Disney Mobile Magic - On Nov. 10, a soft launch of a new mobile application will be available to Verizon Wireless subscribers that puts a virtual personal tour guide of the Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts right in the palms of their hands. The Disney Mobile Magic application provides valuable information to Guests such as attraction wait times for the park they are in, Disney’s FASTPASS Service return times and the ability to located their favorite characters using their mobile device. The application’s GPS technology displays park maps that pinpoint a guest’s location and can also provide suggestions on what to visit next, based on what is nearby. By providing location-specific, real-time guides for each of Disney’s parks and resort hotels, Guests can find what they’re looking for more quickly, navigate the park with confidence, and spend more time enjoying themselves in the park. The application offers live competitive trivia games, videos, character stories and other surprises to keep Guests entertained while waiting in line at the park. The application is designed to also provide specific services for a Guest while planning a Disney vacation from home. Additionally, a new, separate mobile website will allow any Guest with a browser-enabled phone to access useful information such as park hours, entertainment schedules and dining information. Use of this website is at no charge, and is similar to browsing Walt Disney World Resort as Guests would on their computer, but redesigned for the mobile phone environment. This soft launch will provide the opportunity to fine-tune the application to better prepare us for the official launch in January.

Disney Mobile Magic is only available on select Verizon Wireless phones. Functionality issues with the phone or the application should be directed to use the “Click-to-Call” function on their mobile phone or call Verizon Customer Care by dialing 611 from any Verizon phone or (800) 922-0204 from any other phone.

Disney Mobile Magic is available for download and purchase beginning Nov. 10, 2009 for $9.99 per 180 days of service. To purchase the application, Guests can text MAGIC to 2777 from their Verizon phone.

Stitch Kingdom just reported this:

The mobile version of the Walt Disney World website went live today, offering a compact version of the sort of information one might find on the official flash-required website. In addition to hours, basic entertainment schedules, attraction information, dining, shopping and other miscellaneous park-based information, the mobile site includes easy access to current weather conditions and forecasts. The site appears to be low on graphics use as well which means there is no map of the actual parks available to the device, nor is the full entertainment schedule listed, so the paper maps and times guides will still be a required staple to Disney Parks visitors.

To view the site, you can tune your web-enabled phones (or regular browsers) to Walt Disney World Resort http://m.disneyworld.com. Disneyland will also introduce a mobile version of its site, but it does not yet appear to be operational at this time.
