Disney are set to launch a brand-new way for guests to beat the boredom while waiting in line, just in time for the busy summer period.

The new Play Disney Parks app will let guests access new experiences that interact with the environment across both Disneyland and Walt Disney World (a bit like Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom).

Disney has also stated that in select locations, guests will be able to ‘turn wait time into play time with the touch of a button’. According to Disney, the more you explore the parks the more the app will unlock content for guests to enjoy and by the looks of it, there is set to be specific goals and achievements to help gamify the experience.

I am all for this app so long as Disney don’t add a tonne of microtransactions, it could be a great way to tackle boredom when waiting in line. I am also hoping this app will encourage guests to explore some of the more tucked away secrets of the parks.
The app will be free to download (no word on microtransactions) for both the Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World later this Summer.
