The Disney Apps I roll with!

iphone5_large-294128 Today on Facebook, a couple of friends of mine asked me what Disney apps I recommend and have on my iPhone.  As a result, I decided to do a quick list of the apps I have and give a little bit of information about them.  I hope you enjoy!  By the way, this list is in order that I have them on my “Disney” folder on my iPhone — which is alphabetical by title as seen on my iPhone.  This is not a list of favorite to least favorite, or anything like that.  I like them all!

  • Disneyland Mobile Guide — From the TimeStream Software folks, this has a bunch of information about Disneyland that you can look at while you are at the parks! At only $0.99, it’s a great value!
  • Undercover Tourist Disney World App — this app shows wait times for rides, restaurants, park hours, and more.  I have the free version, but they also have an upgrade you can do to remove the ads.
  • My Disney Experience — this app is tied into Disney World’s MyMagic+ system that Disney is introducing — the jury is still out on this app.  Right now it is kind of buggy, but I can see the benefits of it once they get the kinks worked out!
  • DVC Planner — for you DVC owners out there, get the DVC Planner app.  I love this app, it is a great way to keep track of your reservations, points, contracts, and more!  I got in early, the app is now $1.99, but I don’t remember paying for it when I downloaded it a couple of years ago.  Still, I would pay the $1.99 because I like the app that much.
  • Disneyland Secrets Gold – another great app from TimeStream Software, this app has a lot of great secrets for you — and if you are like me and have never been to Disneyland, this is of great use in planning your trip!
  • Disney World Secrets Gold — the companion app from TimeStream Software to Disneyland Secrets Gold, this app focuses on Walt Disney World!
  • WDW Lines from Touringplans.com — This app is considered the ultimate app to have when you are visiting Walt Disney World!  Utilizing the technology that Touringplans.com has implemented, this app allows you to find out wait times, update them for others, and more.  Note: the app is free, but some features require you to login with your login to touringplans.com, which costs $11.95 for one year.
  • Disney World Maps — this free app shows you maps from all around Walt Disney World.  The app is free, but is ad driven.  You can upgrade for a few dollars to remove the ads.
  • Disney World Mobile Guide — one other app from TimeStream Software, this is another good app for looking at the resorts, wait times, maps, dining, park events, hours, and more.  This app is reasonably priced at $2.99, in my opinion.
  • Main Street Windows — this simple app, which is the last I have on my phone, is also from TimeStream Software, and is a neat little app that talks about the incredible windows you can find on Main Street, U.S.A. in the Magic Kingdom.  Each window is discussed, instructions are given on where to find it, and more information on why the person or people were selected is given.  Best of all, this app is FREE!
  • The only other app that I highly recommend is the Disneyland Explorer app!  This free app goes into in-depth detail about Disneyland.  I highly recommend this app, even if you don’t plan on going to Disneyland anytime soon!

With that, my friends, I am going to close it down for now.  I hope you have found some great apps that you want to take advantage of.  Let me know what apps you use in the comments below, and thanks for stopping by!

82 Days til Disneyland – Roger Rabbit’s Car Toon Spin!

In Mickey’s Toontown you will find a “hare” raising adventure called Roger Rabbit’s Car Toon Spin!  Get behind the wheel of an out of control taxi as you barrel through the streets of Toontown!

This ride appeals to me because it sounds fun, crazy, and zany, and it also has some rider participation to help determine how crazy it really is!  When you hit a “dip” in the road, your tires will dissolve, and then, your taxi spins out of control — and you can control how much they spin by using the steering wheel!

With only 82 days until our trip to Disneyland, each day I’m having more and more fun looking at the attractions that we are going to try out at least once.  So tell me, you Disneyland experts, what do you think of Roger Rabbit’s Car Toon Spin?  Worth doing, worth missing, or do it once just so you can say you did it?  Please let me know what you think in the comments, and thanks for stopping by!

Keep in mind that we only have three days left in our Disney Dooney & Bourke Barrel Bag contest!  Are you going to win the purse?  Have you entered yet?  If you haven’t, what are you waiting for?
