Good news! Waiting on line at Disney just got a little bit more fun.
Play Disney Parks, a new app from Disney, provides users with fun games to play while waiting in lines for their favorite rides, music to listen to while roaming the parks, location-specific trivia challenges, and even an array of achievements to add a competitive edge to your park adventure.
“This app allows our guests to feel a powerful and emotional connection to their favorite parks in a whole new way, which is always our goal,” Dan Soto, Vice President, Digital Experience, Disney Parks and Resort Digital, tells GameSpot.
Users will be treated to four different games designed to help pass time in line. The games are themed after individual ride queues and become unlockable near each queue via Bluetooth connectivity. The games are: Peter Pan’s Flight, Toy Story Midway Mania, and Space Mountain. Toy Story Land, opening later this week, will have an added game themed to the Slinky Dog Dash Roller Coaster.
For the music aspect of the app, Disney partnered with Apple Music, so users on iOS devices will have access to some pretty magical playlists in the park, customized to the land the user is in.
Users will also get achievements for completing games, winning trivia challenges, riding rides, and even simply walking through various places within the park—we like the sound of that. Just make sure your phones are charged and Bluetooth is enabled!
The app will be available on iOS and Android devices starting June 30.
