HOW IT WORKS
Shop Disney Parks is a virtual way of literally shopping inside Walt Disney World. Looking for an item sold out at the Disney Store, or just not available when you visited Disneyland? Search for that item, and the app will point you to a location where that item is available inside the Walt Disney World resort. If you happen to be staying on property, you can have the item shipped directly to your room. If not (or if you live closer to Disneyland, like me) the item will ship directly to your home.
MY RATING – ★★★★★
I am obsessed with this app. I had been searching for a Mickey & Minnie bracelet for the longest time, but couldn’t find it anywhere online or in Disneyland. I pulled up the app, and could see exactly what stores in the Magic Kingdom and EPCOT were selling the bracelet! The only disappointment with this app is that it covers ONLY Disney World in Florida, not Disneyland. But the map feature is really cool, ordering my item was a breeze, and the app had a sale that meant I got my order with a nice discount. This app is now my #1 stop for Disney shopping.
APP USE & TIPS
The app has some handy browsing features, if you don’t know the exact name of the item you are looking for. You can browse by category, or narrow your search to a specific part of the Walt Disney World Resort.
Though you are technically shopping at a Disney park when using this app, annual passholder discounts do not apply.
