ANAHEIM, Calif. – With just a click, a tap or a swipe, guests can use their smart phones in exciting new ways on their next visits to the Disneyland Resort. These convenient digital features are designed to be easy and intuitive, save time, and also support a more contactless experience.
As the Disneyland Resort reopens its theme parks on April 30, 2021, and Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa on April 29, 2021, here are 10 ways guests can tap into digital technology to maximize their experience:
Tip! Guests are encouraged to download the latest version of the app prior to their visit to familiarize themselves with all its tools.* It is recommended to have location services enabled and turn on notifications for important updates and information about the Disneyland Resort.
Tip! It’s recommended that guests place their orders early in the day to make sure their meal is prepared at their preferred dining time. When arriving at the restaurant, guests tap “I’m here,” in the app and head to the pick-up area. The number of available times at each food and beverage location is limited, yet there are many dining choices throughout the parks.
Tip! If guests start their day at Disneyland park, they can check for an available boarding group starting at 7 a.m. on the day of your park reservation right from your phone from wherever they are, prior to arriving at Disneyland. To access the virtual queue opportunity beginning at 12 p.m., guests should be sure to enter Disneyland, or Disney California Adventure park with a Park Hopper ticket, by noon. Guests who begin their day at Disney California Adventure and who have obtained a boarding group may then enter Disneyland with their Park Hopper ticket after 1p.m. for their boarding group, subject to availability.
Tip! Guests can ask Disney PhotoPass photographers to add a little magic to their photos.
Tip! If an item is fragile, a cast member will be happy to wrap it.
Tip! Guests can check-in online up to five days in advance prior to their arrival.
