A special Disney application for select Verizon phones is expected to launch tomorrow. Called ‘Mobile Magic’, the app will allow users to find out park information at the touch of a few buttons.
Ride wait times, FastPass times, parade times and nearby restaurant info are just a few of the handy items you will be able to find out about with the new feature. It is expected to work at all the parks that are part of Walt Disney World (including the water parks) as well as Disneyland and California Adventure.
The app is expected to cost $9.99 and be good for a 180-day window before it would have to be purchased again. As of right now, it is only going to work on certain Verizon phones, but expansion to other Verizon models is in the works.
Evidently, Mobile Magic utilizes the GPS technology that is built into the phone to let you know where you are in the park, and inform you of nearby attractions, restaurants, etc. It also relies on that GPS technology to only give you the detailed information if you are inside a specific park. If you are not inside the turnstiles, the app will only give you general information.
