With summer fast approaching, vacations are being planned and if you're headed to Walt Disney World, you may want to check out Disney Expedition for your Windows Phone 8 or 7.x device.
Disney Expedition is a well laid out companion app for the Disney theme parks that can help you manage your time and help you from getting lost.
Disney Expedition main pages includes information on the Disney parks, hotels, and and activities at Walt Disney World. The park listings includes the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom, Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon. In selecting one of the parks you can find attractions, activities, Disney characters associated with the park, shows, shops, dining, and guest services for each.
The hotel listings (too many to list individually) pulls up individual activities, shows, shops, dining and guest services associated with each hotel.
The Activities Page lists attractions, activities, shows, shops, dining and guest services for the Disney Boardwalk, Downtown Disney and ESPN Wide World of Sports.
The guest service listing for each category covers not only guest relations centers but also ATMs, locker rentals, restrooms, smoking areas, first aid stations, picture spots and stroller rentals.When you drill down to the mountains of activities that Walt Disney World offers you can see schedules, wait times, who the activity is perfect for (kids, teens, adults, etc.), and map out the location with Bing Maps.
Disney Expedition will let you set alarm reminders so you won't be late and sort attractions by height/age requirements, types of rides, distance from your current location, and name.
Another neat (and handy) feature with Disney Expedition is that at the bottom of each park, hotel and activity index screen is a restroom button. This will pull up a map of the closet restroom to your current location.
Disney Expedition offers a mound of information to help you get around and survive Walt Disney World. Utilizing your location services helps you from getting lost and I like the reminders that can be set to help you from being late.
Disney Expedition is a free, ad supported app for your Windows Phone 8 or 7.x device that you can see here in the Windows Phone Store.
