Getting the most out of your My Disney Experience App

If you’ve ever visited Walt Disney World you’ve probably downloaded the My Disney Experience App, if you haven’t you definitely need to before your next trip!

Disney is constantly making improvements to the app and it’s easy to miss some of the awesome features available.  Here’s a rundown of what the app can do for you and how to get the most out of it.

Create a profile


Before you get started you will need to create a profile for yourself.  Start by logging in (or creating) an account then choose your Disney avatar.  You can update this at any time and Disney is constantly releasing new characters to choose from.

Next link your profile to the family members you are traveling with.  If you are linked with all of the members of your party then you will be able to book fast passes for everyone at once and add them to your dining reservations.  You can also make certain members of your party responsible for others (like kids) so that they can fully admin their profile.



There are so many ways to use the app to help with dining.  You can search for restaurants by food, location & style (quick service of table service) as well as view the menu ahead of time.  You can book & change dining reservations (for more on that check out this post!) as well pre-order food from quick service restaurants that have this option.  And, if you aren’t in the mood for a meal you can search for snack locations and find out what they offer.

Attractions & Fastpasses

Fastpasses are a great way to enjoy more attractions while waiting less!  With the My Disney Experience app you can pre-book your fast passes and add fast passes throughout the day once you’ve used the existing ones.  Putting in time between fast passes?  Check out the attractions tab to see what the wait times are on every attraction so you can decide where to head next!

Find anything you want!!

Wanting to know where your fav characters are or maybe you’re looking for the restrooms!  Just consult the appropriate tab on the app to see everything that you could possibly want to know. From shops to guest services and even tours if you’re looking for it, you can find it!

Check out your Photopass photos!


I love photopass!! If you’re wondering why, check this out 🙂  and I love that My Disney Experience lets you view all of your photos just minutes after they are taken!  All you do is scan your magic band when you have your photo taken and it automatically links to your profile.  And, if you’ve linked all of the members of your group together then you’ll be able to see everyone’s pictures which is so fun!!

Keep your entire vacation organized!


Once you’ve booked your hotel you will see your plans pop up in your profile.  Then, as you add fast passes, dining etc you will see each day populate with all of your plans!  You can even make notes of things you want to do (or have booked elsewhere) and add in events you don’t want to miss like fireworks and parades.

Well, that’s it, your quick tour of why I love My Disney Experience?  Do you have a fav feature that I missed? Leave it in the comments 🙂
