The My Disney Experience app was recently updated to feature in-app Shop Disney Parks functionalities. Before, guests would have to shop for Disney parks merchandise on a separate landing page. Now, Walt Disney World park goers have the convenience of finding gifts and souvenirs in the same app.
These new Shop Disney Parks functionalities include browsing keepsakes, finding items in the parks and shipping them to most U.S. addresses. Shop through seasonal collections, search by categories, scan in-store item QR readers and add merchandise to your bag all from your smart device.
Three years after its launch, Shop Disney Parks is now available on the homepage of the My Disney Experience app where guests can purchase park tickets, look at wait times, reserve dining, manage FastPass+, link photos and now find merchandise. This one stop shop of an app has expanded over the years to cover all guest needs in the parks and is continuing with this August 2018 update.
Although the My Disney Experience app seems to be absorbing park shopping capabilities, the Shop Disney Parks app and homepage will continue to be offered in addition to the new in-app function.
