My Disney Experience is the current limited functionality application. It's available on the Apple App Store, on Android and probably eventually on Blackberry if it isn't there now.

It will also work on tablets from any of those three. Or an iPod. Or the inexpensive Google Android 7" tablet. Translation - you don't "need" smartphone per se, and there will probably be folks to assist those who don't have any device whatsoever.

I've been in the parks this week, the WIFI ain't perfect "everywhere" but generally speaking we haven't had much trouble finding a spot for it to work long enough to get what we need done. Whatever that may be.

The RFID park entry for resort guests has worked very smoothly and far fewer problems than we had with the old ticket read system. The finger scans seem moderately better. Only one finger rejection this week and that was from using the wrong hand. (woops!)

Ok, I may just be dumb, or maybe it's because my trip isn't until Dec. but the app seems pretty useless to me. There is nothing on there that I can customize or any types of planning tools. It's just maps and fastpass return times... I keep waiting for it to get updates or something. I am disappointed there isn't more to it, but not surprised as their new website seems to be seriously lacking as well.... do you guys who have trips coming up get to actually use the app for anything?

I don't use the app much until I actually go to WDW. Then I do. I find the My Disney Experience on the website to be better to work with during the planning stages of the trip.

Count me in as one who bought an ipod touch to use at WDW. I debated between that and a cheap tablet, but the size and weight were the main factors in my decision. I typically have my laptop back at the resort for checking email and stuff that can be harder to read on the small screen. The app has worked well for me on the ipod and I also like being able to check the weather radar in the parks on those cloudy days when you aren't quite sure if it will rain or not.
