I just read the DIS update on MyMagic+ and am wondering, what if you don't have a smart phone?
That's one of my "hmmmm" issues with this.I was wondering the same thing. I was able to download the app onto my kindle and it works great!
I agree with you and that concerns me too. We would never bring the ipad into the parks, but would consider bringing the kindle.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.
I have a nook tablet, and...sort of kind of.Has anyone been successful in getting the app on their nook color?
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.pilferk said:And with the free wifi in the parks...the app will work just fine with the Ipod touch. Works fine with ours, at home.
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.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?
