New WDWNT Now! Text Messaging Service Available

Have you ever been at Walt Disney World and wondered “When does ‘Festival of the Lion King’ start next?” or “I wonder what the wait is currently for Space Mountain?”. Maybe you’ve thought “Should I bring a poncho tomorrow? What’s the forecast?”

Well now you can find out quickly using WDWNT Now!’s new service – Quick Queries!

Before we begin – a few notes:

  • Note: Message and data rates may apply. WDWNT is not responsible for SMS/text messaging charges incurred.
  • This system is in beta mode currently. If you don’t get a response, want us to add a short code for an attraction, entertainment, or restaurant, or have other comments, please send an email to [email protected]

Alright, let’s go. It’s super simple – just send a text message with a valid “short code” to 1-407-917-4007 and get a reply back.

Some examples:

  • #plans – returns your next 3 “My Disney Experience” itinerary items (note: you must have registered an account at
  • #status yeti space pirates – returns today’s hours for Yak & Yeti and wait times for Space Mountain or Pirates of the Caribbean (there are code words for each attraction or establishment)
  • #status fotlk – returns the next showing of Festival of the Lion King
  • #weather – returns the current WDW weather and tomorrow’s forecast
