The only time I’ve been to Disneyland, it was lightly raining on a gloomy Paris day, but everything was made better when I saw the colorful castle from afar and spent the day giggling and hopping between attractions, playing with every toy I could see and buying a couple, eating a Mickey Mouse pancake, and then ending it by watching the parade and joining in the final dance. If the Winnie the Pooh photo waiting line was shorter and less filled with kids, it’d have been perfect. Oh, I forgot to say I was 24 by then. I’m a big kid inside, alright?
I’d go to Disneyland again in a heartbeat, but I’d rather it be in a different location. Florida is on top of my list, mainly because of all the other parks I can visit there, but Shanghai and Hong Kong are close seconds. These are the two parks that Disney is adding to its list of Android apps right now, making them more mobile-friendly to our geeky selves.
Both apps offer GPS-enabled interactive maps of the whole resort including themed hotels, stores, attractions, and more. There are estimated wait times for attractions (Shanghai only) and entertainment schedules for parades and shows so you can time your visit to different spots accordingly. The apps are available in English and Simplified Chinese, to be more accessible to visitors.
