AT&T will now be the official wireless company for the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and the Disneyland Resort in California. What does this mean for guests? Hopefully more connectivity, after looking at the list of planed upgrades listed in the Orlando Sentinel. AT&T will be adding "ten cell sites across Walt Disney World Resort; more than 25 distributed antenna systems to increase wireless capacity; more than 350 so-called 'small cells' to extend network connectivity; and more than 40 repeaters to boost the mobile performance for both guests and Disney cast members."

AT&T will become a sponsor of "Disney-created soccer" and various runDisney events that take place at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. The new partnership will also give both AT&T and Disney an opportunity to focus on education revolving around not texting while driving.
