There are a handful of apps on my phone that really help us to get the most out of our trips to Disneyland Paris.

All of the apps I’m going to talk about in this post are 100% free to download. They’re a great help to first-timers and seasoned Disneyland Paris visitors! Both of the parks (and all of the resort hotels) have free wifi so they’re easy to access on the go! I will say that the park wifi can be a bit glitchy so we always make sure that we have our mobile data switched on too. It’s not ideal but we’d rather use up some of our data than miss out on fun adventures in the parks.
The Official Disneyland Paris App
Firstly (and obviously) I would recommend downloading the official Disneyland Paris app. There’s a lot you can do with this app – check opening times, keep track of wait times for rides, book your park tickets and so much more! You can even upload your Magic Pass to the app so you can keep track of your meal vouchers if you’re on a Disney meal plan! My favourite feature of the official app is the interactive map – super useful for first-timers!
Magipark is another app for keeping track of wait times. Personally, I find it easier to read than the official app and we’ve found the times to be slightly more accurate. Keeping an eye on wait times is a great way to plan out your day and make sure that you’re making the best use of your time!
Lineberty is an app used to which lets you “virtually” queue for certain character meets at the Walt Disney Studios Park. On our February 2019 trip, we had to reserve meets with Buzz Lightyear, Woody, Mickey Mouse and Spiderman. It’s important to note that you cannot meet these characters at Walt Disney Studios without a reservation on Lineberty.
I’ve done a detailed post about Lineberty and how to use it, which you can find here:
Of course, you only need this app if you’ve bought the Photopass + or added it to your holiday package. This app allows you to view all of the photographs that you’ve had taken by the Photopass photographers at the parks.
FUN TIP: Make sure to check the app regularly to make sure that all of your photos have been added correctly. If you think some of your photos are missing, visit Flora’s on Main Street and they should be able to locate them for you!
You can also download your photographs to your phone using this app. However it is worth noting that the quality of the images is far better when you download them to a computer.
I’ve also done a full blog post about Photopass + at Disneyland Paris, which you can find here:
Even if you’re not a regular tweeter, I would recommend downloading the app for your trip and follow @ED92Live . If you turn on your notifications for their account, you will receive a notification every time an unscheduled character is meeting in the park. For example – they could tweet that Rapunzel is out by the Old Mill and you’ll know to head over there quickly if you’re a fan of Rapunzel. This is a great way to meet extra characters who don’t have a regular slot in the park programme.
And one for the road…ED92 Radio!
This final app is perfect for curing those dreaded Disney blues once you’re back home. ED92 is a radio station which plays park music 24 hours a day! You’ll hear a great mix of attraction/show songs mixed with the music of Main Street USA. It’s like bringing a little piece of Disneyland home.
Between using all of these wonderful apps all day and taking thousands of pictures, your phone battery is likely to die pretty quickly. It’s always a good idea to pack a power bank to give your phone an extra boost!
