Disney "Mobile Magic" android app help please!

Has anyone who has an android phone managed to download the official Disneyworld app at all?

I had read that it had been released & it is mentioned in the latest Unofficial guide as available, but I'm having no luck finding it.

If I go to the website on my laptop I can find it & follow the link to the Google Play store where it is available to download, but no matter what I search for on my phone I can't find it anywhere.

I tried following a friends advice & downloading it on my laptop with my phone connected but when I click the "download" button nothing happens. I've tried this with other apps & it works fine.

I've managed to download the apps for the other major Orlando parks but not the Disney one.

Has anyone managed to download the app? Am I doing something wrong? (I'm not the most technically proficient person!)

I really want it not so much for the wait times function, but so I can have the park maps on my phone as I have a terrible sense of direction & will be easier to refer to my phone than to keep digging out the paper map.

Any help appreciated!!!!

The Mobile Magic app isn't available in the UK on Android.
You can see it here, but when you log in to you account it tells you you can't have it You don't see it on the Play store on the phone as only compatible/allowed apps show up.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ileMagic&hl=en

cliveywolves is right about the new app - not on Android yet anywhere...

Shame. I've tried to download it from AndroidZoom and it loaded but said that it wasn't available in the UK.

Ah, that explains it! Thanks very much, thought I was just being daft!

Annoying though, being available on IOS & android in the US but not here. Will wait till get out there & see if can download it then.

Its available on Android now. But I have problems trying to use the maps. It seems to link to the maps on the website, and because I'm in the UK it seems to screw up because it accesses the UK site.

I presume in WDW it works ok? Can anybody confirm this?

I'm having the same problem. Downloaded the app this week after seeing on the Dis that it had now been released but doesn't seem to work properly. Maps takes me to the Disney website and I haven't so far been able to log into my Disney account through it successfully yet either. Keep getting different error messages.

I'm going to uninstall it & try download it again once I'm in Orlando to see if works then as might just be a bug when using it in the UK.

Fingers crossed!

Update:
The new My Disney Experience app is now available to UK users on the Play Store. Just downloaded it - seems a bit clunky but better than nothing. WDW isn't open yet so everything is showing as no wait - will have a closer look later on...

Just downloaded the Disney Mobile Magic App for the iPhone and I love it. So handy that it shows where the characters are and what events are happening in each park and at what time they are at. If the wifi works well when we're there it will definitely come in handy!

Does the map work properly on the iPhone in the UK? It doesn't on the Android, but I reckon that is because I am still in the UK. Anybody with an Android manage to get the maps to work yet?

Seems to be working fine for me. Only a few character slots show up but it says that you will unlock more when you visit the park

Its working fine for me now on Android. I think I just uypdated the app, so it probably fixed some bugs.

Looks a good app.

Not sure if you can actually make a dining reservation with it though - I searched for a table for one restaurant, and seemed to find a table for one date, but it then points you towards the number for telephone reservations.

As far as I can see, Mobile Magic is still only available in the US in the Google Play store. If you're logged in, it will come up as "incompatible" but then say for your country.

"My Disney Experience" is available. That looks pretty good, but you can't do a great deal with it until you're actually at Disney.

I've also installed Disney World Lines made by touringplans.com, which also looks pretty decent. Will let you access queue times even while in the UK (assuming the parks are open of course).

Edit: I've just googled for the apk (app installer) and you can find mobile magic 3.0 quite easily. Installed and appears to be working, although I can't really see much difference to the My Disney Experience one, tbh.
