Where’s My Car? New App Feature Coming to Disney Parks
How many of us can remember a time we had trouble finding our car in a Walt Disney World or Disneyland Resort parking lot? Well, say goodbye to that as we are bringing guests a new car locator feature presented by State Farm to the My Disney Experience and Disneyland apps!
The feature will first launch at Walt Disney World Resort this summer and will be available at Disneyland Resort later this year.
Car locator is a complimentary feature that uses location technology to find and save Guest's parking details. The feature functions best when you enable Location Services, Bluetooth, and Notifications on their mobile device.
The feature will be available at all four Walt Disney World theme parks, Disney Springs, Disney Water Parks, and the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. All guests have to do is open their My Disney Experience app and tap the car locator card on their home screen—or they can use the Feature menu (☰) for access.
After that, guests can follow the prompts to enter their parking information. If they choose to enable location permissions on their device, car locator can help fill in the details for them. When guests are ready to leave, they can return to car locator for their parking information.
In addition to helping guests find their car at the end of the day, they can tap into a variety of other convenient features to make their Disney visit easier! From mobile merchandise checkout and mobile food ordering to the direct-to-room service at Disney Resort hotels, the My Disney Experience app helps free up more time for them to enjoy attractions and experiences. And if they haven’t already, be sure to have them check out the MagicMobile service, which is a great contactless way to enter the theme parks and enjoy other helpful features like linking their Disney PhotoPass photos.
Be sure guests have the latest update of the My Disney Experience app so they're ready when car locator launches this summer! Later this year, the feature will launch at Disneyland Resort. Stay tuned for more updates!
