Fantastic idea The texts were not always prompt, a few took over night ): the day and time constantly changed, we would have to manually change it. The app ran our phones dead and we would have to charge 3x per day. Make sure your phone is set to airplane mode. The ship activities, the menu features were great and I used that only, never looked at the navigator! Perfect green idea...love it
It was a real handy option on the ship to be able to text with your phone rather than use the in room wave phones Disney provides. But the app kicked me off on our last day one the boat and it would not allow me to log back on. Also it doesn't work on Castaway Cay island. That would make the app the ultimate if it worked on the island.
Amazing Help! Make sure to use this app to keep up with all the activities. Put a star for the things you want to see our do and it will remind you 15 mins before. Also, you can text and keep up with each other. Fun icons and tons of information including ship maps for each event. Well worth the time to install and use. Thanks, Disney!!
Good for finding activities but still lots of room for improvement Works okay for messaging (will not always get notice of a message) and is great for seeing "All Activities" over a cruise but try and filter Activities by a location and you'll need to force stop the app to again get working. One great add-on they could do would be either to incorporate ones booked activities (since one has to register by cabin and guest) or allow one to add their own activity to what is shown in favorites.
Missing just one key feature The app is good, but know it will not fully replace your paper navigator. Cast members told us after we were late to an event, because the app time had the wrong start time, not to trust what's in the app and only what's on the paper copy. This seems poor at best. Also, this really should let you sign in so your planned events are shown as well as the navigator ones. I.e. Palo at 7 so that you can truly plan your entire day in the app.
When the app was working it was wonderful. But every once in a while none of the messages that I sent to my other family members on board ship went through and I did not know that right away it was several hours later. All in all it probably is a good thing. But there needs to be more quality control to keep it working 24/7 while on board ship. The Disney Experience is one that I will not forget this was our second Cruise loved it.
With this release, we fixed bugs and improved overall app performance.
The only app with custom touring plans, real wait times, dining menus & prices.
