MyMagic+: What if no smart phone?

I just read the DIS update on MyMagic+ and am wondering, what if you don't have a smart phone?

There will be kiosks set up around the parks that will allow you to see/change/schedule FP+ reservations.

Thanks - good to know. Do you know if the app can be downloaded onto our Ipad to schedule things at home before we leave?

I recently bought an old iPOD from somebody at work for $50. No monthly fees.

Perfect! We have a kindle too - just no smart phones! The kindle would be easy to carry around the parks too.

And with the free wifi in the parks...the app will work just fine with the Ipod touch. Works fine with ours, at home.

That's one of my "hmmmm" issues with this.

Disney is now asking us all to bring some relatively expensive tech into the parks, on a pretty much daily basis.

With the proliferation of smart phones...I know thats already happening to a large degree.

But when there are variances...I'm guessing we're going to see an increased number of tablet type devices in the park. And...lets face it...they're going to need to be stowed on a regular basis for some of the rides. Rides you're not too keen on having your tech riding along with you (and the old "put your phone in a zip lock and shove in a pocket" doesn't work quite as well for ipads, kindles, etc).

It would be nice to see some more lockers pop up around the park, with free short term useage (like IOA/Uni does in their parks). Leaving that piece of tech in the stroller (if you have one).....I'm not quite as confident in it's safety as I am when I leave a merch bag hanging off the handle.

Hmmmmm

I agree with you and that concerns me too. We would never bring the ipad into the parks, but would consider bringing the kindle.

I have a nook tablet, and...sort of kind of.

It runs if I put the N2A card into it and convert it to an android tablet.

But I haven't seen the app on the nook marketplace (to be honest, I haven't looked very hard, either) and, typically, if it's not there, it won't run when it's in "nook" mode.

I don't know why I didn't think of that. I don't have a smart phone and don't plan on getting one in the near future, and I'm not about to lug my iPad around.

You can schedule from home on any computer accessing the My Disney Experience on the new website.

The convenience of the App is you can then take it with you into the parks.
