Disney is getting ready to introduce a new mobile app that will make finding, buying and shipping merchandise from the Walt Disney World theme parks easier and faster than ever.
Unlike the merchandise being offered by the existing DisneyStore.com site, the new app will offer nearly the full range of merchandise available in the parks, and should once-and-for-all resolve that problem of – “I wish I had bought it when I was there..”
Called ‘Shop Disney Parks,’ the app will allow guests to locate, order, and ship merchandise from any Disney operated retail store at Walt Disney World.
For guests shopping at home within the US, the app will let them browse, buy and then ship the items directly. Guests that are already in the parks, will have the capability to browse, buy and then ship to the front of park, or for resort guests, directly to the hotel.
Inside the stores, guests will be able to scan the merchandise for more information about the product.
By linking in with My Disney Experience, the app will also honor discounts, such as Annual Pass and Disney Vacation Club discounts.
The app will be launching soon, and will be available for iOS devices, such as iPhone and iPad, and Android.
