Make Long Lines Quicker With the Play Disney Parks App Play Disney

Visiting Disney Parks during peak seasons, like around the holidays, is both a blessing and a curse. On the one hand, you’ve got all the beauty of the season, the parks dressed up in atmospheric excellence, decorated to the nines with all the trimmings of the holidays. Conversely, this sensational time to enjoy Disney can attract record-high crowds who want the same experience. As you wait in line a little longer for each attraction than you usually would, it’s easy to get frustrated and start to feel like you aren’t getting the most out of your trip. Enter the Play Disney Parks app. You might be wondering what this app is and how it can be used. Well, that is what we are diving into today.

What Is the Play Disney Parks App?

The Play Disney Parks app differs from My Disney Experience, with a very different focus. Play Disney Parks is intended to heighten the guest experience while in Walt Disney World with activities to help pass the time while keeping within the Disney theme.

What Does the App Do?

There are so many advantages to this entertainment app, like in-queue games you can play while waiting in line for some of the Walt Disney World attractions, some interactive park experiences that bring your surrounding park environments to life, exciting Disney trivia, unlock theme park achievements, and so much more. Here are just a few of the attractions where you can enjoy interactive experiences and in-line games:

Can I Put the Play Disney Parks App on My Child’s Device?

Yes! Children will need a parent’s permission (and some help) before enjoying this app on their next visit to Walt Disney World. Here are the instructions from Disney on how to install the app for kids:

To do so, please follow these steps:

  1. Download the Disney Parks Play app on the mobile device that your child will use.
  2. Open the app
  3. Tap the Mickey Mouse icon located in the top left of the screen.
  4. Tap “Sign In”.
  5. Tap “Create an Account”.
  6. Fill in all required fields and tap “Request Account”.
  7. An email will be sent to the address that was entered in the “Parent Email Address” field with important information and instructions on how to approve or deny the child’s request to create the Disney account.
  8. Follow the instructions in the email to approve the creation of the Disney account and give your child permission to use the new account to sign into the Play Disney Parks app.
  9. Your child will now be able to sign into the Play Disney Parks app with their Disney account.

Don’t forget to use this fun tool when you are next in the parks; it’s a great way to keep the family entertained during those extra-long wait times throughout the holidays.
