GUIDE: How to Use the Car Locator Feature at Walt Disney World, Now Live on My Disney Experience App

Do you ever have such an amazing park day ruined by walking in circles trying to remember where you parked? Those days are over with My Disney Experience’s Car Locator by State Farm. We got news of this feature not long ago, and it is now launching for some users.

Guests can access the Car Locator feature via the card on the My Disney Experience app Home Screen (left) or the feature menu (center) for access. You will then arrive at the Car Locator feature screen (right).

When you press “Save Vehicle Location”, the app will auto-fill details about where it thinks you parked if you have Location Services turned on and are within one of the supported parking areas. You can then confirm or modify these details.

If you are too far from a parking area, or have Location Services disabled, you’ll receive a “Too Far Away” prompt and will need to manually enter your parking details.

When manually entering parking details, eight locations will be presented for all of the parking areas currently supported by the feature.

The four theme parks, Disney Springs, and ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex have picture icons representing their various lots. Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach merely list row numbers for their relatively small parking lots.

Regardless of whether your car’s location was filled out automatically or manually, once you confirm the location the Car Locator screen will display where your car is currently parked. You can update the location if it was entered incorrectly, or if you are hopping to a different park but don’t have Location Services enabled.

When you’re ready to leave, return back to the Car Locator. If notifications are enabled, the app will automatically remind you where you’ve parked.

It claims to function best when you enable Location Services, Bluetooth, and Notifications on your phone, although none of these are required.
