BREAKING: MyDisneyExperience App Launching Innovative Step-By-Step Navigation System

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

We knew there were big plans for the MyDisneyExperience app, but I’m not sure anyone ever speculated that the app would someday give guests step-by-step directions around the Walt Disney World Resort. Starting Monday, July 18th, the app will begin guiding guests around the resort, whether they are walking or utilizing Disney transportation.


The new feature will be able to direct guests to theme parks, water parks, resorts, The Transportation and Ticket Center, Disney Springs, attractions, characters, dining, restrooms, entertainment, events and tours, PhotoPass locations, guest services, recreation, shopping, and spas.

Version 3.6 of the MyDisneyExperience app will give guests the ability to use this new feature. The new feature can be accessed in the app by clicking buttons labeled “Get Directions” or “Start Walking”. “Get Directions” will give guests Disney transportation options to various locations. “Start Walking” will give guests walking directions to their destination. The function will not give driving directions for guests with their own vehicles.

I don’t know about you, but there are times when planning a Disney vacation can be overwhelming! There are so many options, where to stay, when to go, is this the best price. So, I want to introduce you all to Cindy Minor and the team at Small World Big Fun. They will help you plan your Disney vacation for FREE. Contact them today!

  • Now if they could just make this app not crash when setting up more than 1 day of fastpass.. or change the number dining setting up an DR, this would be a nice-to-have feature. It’s almost like the end of 2013 came back this Spring in the MDE app. (REVENGE of LIMITED TIME MAGIC!).
