Disney iPad apps for 3 y.o?

Looking to load some cheap apps onto my iPad for a 3.5 yo girl. This is for entertainment in the room, at dinner, while waiting, etc while we are at Disney as a group. Any suggestions? Her parents don't own a tablet, so she doesn't have alot of experience with games on an iPad. She has watched part of a movie on mine a couple of times and played with the Furby app - so she does understand a bit about how it works.

I don't own any Disney apps yet, but the following puzzle apps were either free or <$2 and are beloved by my 3 yo:
- Shape Builder (current favorite)
- Wood Puzzle First Years and Wood Puzzle (these were the first apps he figured out, around 22 mos)
- Shape Galaxy

There are also some good drawing apps - I think the one I've used (because it was free) is called neuKidsDraw.

I would love to hear some recommendations for Disney apps!

My DD's favorites are Mickey Mouse Road Rally and Jake's Neverland Pirate School. Both of them are free. I forgot if you said tablet or phone, the road rally one is only for a tablet, the jake one is for a tablet or a phone.

I only have two disney (girl) ones:

Disney princess sticker book

Disney Winnie the Pooh puzzle book


I can recommend these though as my DD likes them as well (not Disney though!):

Shapes app by toddler teasers

Lingu Pinguin en espanol app

Monkey Preschool Lunchbox app

Dog party from Martha Speaks

Dora Rhyme

Angelina Ballerina dress up

Dora's ABCs

Who am I?

Pottery

Also we have Disney Cars puzzle book app and two Thomas the Train apps. Both my kids are in love with Thomas. Most of these apps I have had since they were three. They are 5 now, so we have some more educational ones now but the ones I mentioned they loved at 3. (We used them many times though big sister's concerts and swim meets!! Life savers.)

There is a new Sofia the First app that is cute. It reads a story (based on the 1st show/movie), and then there is a puppet theatre app that you can use to make a puppet show with the characters.
