Disney Should Work With Other Companies

On a recent trip to Disney World I decided that I would do some searching for some Android apps that dealt with the parks.  What I ended up finding were just a few demo versions that were out, and then there were the paid versions of the same.  There are apps to monitor show, ride lines, and more.  After not finding anything that was actually published by Disney I found out that Disney did have their hands into the Android market, but it appears that only Verizon gets access to the app.  I had, and still have Sprint.  Back when I first started looking for an app I had a HTC Hero with htc sense.  Now I have a Galaxy S phone.  Why is that?  They could make so much more money if they allowed other carriers access to the same app.  I love my Android, but I just wish that someone would work it out with Disney to make an app that I would enjoy using each time I go to Disney World.

Disney World Dining From Your Cell Phone

Making dining reservations in Disney World has just gotten a bit easier.  There is no download of an app necessary.  All you have to do is navigate to http://disneyworld.com/dining from your internet based smartphone, and you will get a very easy to use dining planner.  If you have a Droid, or an IPhone, then you can currently use this feature.  Blackberry users will have to wait a bit, as that part isn’t finished yet.

There are many different ways you can search with this tool.  Give it a try and see how easy it is.

For those of you still in the “Stone Phone Age” just call 407-WDW-DINE to make your reservations.

I tried it from my Droid, and it is very easy to use.

Here is a screenshot from the IPhone version.
