My Plans

Get FastPass+

Maybe one of the most crucial sections of the My Disney Experience app is the Get FastPass+ section. Here you can select new FastPass+ times, look at reserved times, and even make some changes to existing FastPass+ reservations.

Reserve Dining

Reservations at some Disney restaurants are a must, which makes this section of the app extremely important. Here after selecting your group size, when and when you are planning to dine, you’ll find a wide variety of available reservations at restaurants across Walt Disney World property.

Order Food

Disney is increasingly allowing guests to order their quick service food directly from the My Disney Experience app. Currently this is only offered through select restaurants in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, but many expect that this feature will soon be Walt Disney World property wide. This cuts down on the wait times when ordering your food from the available quick service locations.

Link Dining

If you or someone in your party has booked a dining reservation, but it isn’t showing up on your, My Disney Experience app you can link that reservation by using this tool. By simply plugging in your dining confirmation number, and the last name on your reservation, it should automatically connect you to that reservation.

Link Hotel

Similar to the Link Dining tool, the Link Hotel tool will allow you or someone in your party to link your My Disney Experience app to your party’s hotel reservation. Again simply plug in the confirmation number, and the last name on the reservation, and then it should link your hotel reservation directly to your My Disney Experience app.

Call to Book Hotel

This button will send a direct call to Disney’s hotel reservation center.

 

My Photos

The My Disney Experience app catalogs all the PhotoPass photos that have been taken of you and your family throughout your vacation, that even includes ride photos! Here you’ll find those photos and so much more!

Buy Memory Maker

In order to enjoy your PhotoPass photos without a watermark you’ll have to purchase Memory Maker, which give you free downloads of all the pictures and videos that were taken of you and your family. The current price of Memory Maker is $199, but that is subject to change at any time. If your Memory Maker account is not connected to your My Disney Experience app this is where you’ll link it.

Find Photographer

PhotoPass cast members can be found throughout Walt Disney World property, but if you have trouble finding someone the “Find Photographer” tool will show you directly on a map where they are located.

Link Photos

In order for you to connect the PhotoPass photographers photos of you, you’ll have to have them scan either your MagicBand, an RFID Card connected to your account, or your can have them scan the PhotoPass Code in the Link Photos section of the app. This code will link those photos to your account automatically.

 

Spotlight

Here Disney promotes something that they are excited about! That means it can be information on something as big as an entirely new land, or it could be something as small as them highlighting a bar or restaurant on Walt Disney World property.
