Avoid Disneyland Lines? New iPhone App for that!
If you have an iPhone and plan to visit Disneyland on your vacation, then you need this brand new application to use when you get to the Maingates. Released today, June 26, 2009, be the first to get this new app for your Iphone and budget your time.
Great for visitors or locals, this iPhone application is for those folks who don’t like to wait in line!
Created by Brent Pope, a father of four, he had the same issues that we all do about the rides we go on: waiting too long in lines. Deciding to use technology to better the vacation experience at Disney, Mr. Pope developed an iPhone application for DisneyWorld and calls his company Wait Watchers (how creative.) This simple idea caught on with folks visiting the Resort in Florida and his dream got bigger to help track the wait times at all the Disney Parks. Today, his simple idea of an app to keep track of the wait time has spread to the west coast to help parents who visit Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure too.
Divided into two apps for individual park use, the programs give approximate times of waiting for each attraction. Using reports filed by individuals who are currently waiting in line or have reported the line wait, you can quickly find out the time of the expecting wait period if you don’t have a fastpass. Additionally, you can use the application to interact with other users to let folks know your line time experience. Connecting everyone together, application users get real time line waiting to make decisions on what ride to play on next.
Now just to make sure that you don’t get mislead on the real time wait on the lines, the application has some build in safety features. Including a GPS validation for the reports that have been reported. So if you have the application on your iPhone, you will need to be in the Resort to actually report a wait time.
Finally, you maybe wondering, so how much can this handy iPhone application cost? Well the value of knowing what the line is, without having to walk all the way to Central Plaza in Disneyland, it’s got to cost big bucks right? Wrong, this simple application is priced extremely budget conscious with a fair price of .99. Which is amazing for what it offers parents on vacation!
If you find yourself in line where everyone can hear you complain, yet it seems that you are being ignored, it’s probably true. Those with iPhones already knew the times and felt the .99 was worth the cash for this awesome application.
