One of the best parts of Disney World is meeting the characters, but with so many to see, it can be tricky trying to fit all your favorites in to your day.
Luckily, the My Disney Experience App lists out most of the characters, making it easy to see who, where, and when the characters are meeting in the parks.
Here’s how it works…
Want to find your favorite characters at Disney World? Follow these steps:
Download the My Disney Experience app
If you haven’t already, you’ll need to download the My Disney Experience app.
Once you do, open it up.
Sometimes it can be a bit…slow…to open, but don’t give up.
Select (touch) the map pin that is at the bottom of the app
When you open up the app, you’ll notice a menu across the bottom:
You’ll want to select the map pin icon to open up the map.
Select “Characters” from the middle menu
Once you have the map open, you’ll need to select “Characters” from the dropdown menu at the top.
Narrow your search to the desired location
The “Filter” lets you narrow your search.
Toggle back and forth between map view and list view
The “Show List” button in the upper right lets you toggle back and forth between the map view and a list view of the characters at Disney World.
Select character you are looking for
Both the map and the lists are interactive and if you select something, it will open up in a new window.
When looking at a detail view for a character, you’ll see the list of appearances left for the day, plus it will plot it out on the map for you and even give you directions for how to get there from your current location.
And – that’s it!
Remember, you don’t have to wait until you get to Disney World to play around with the My Disney Experience app.
In fact, we highly recommend that you don’t.
Instead, download it ahead of time and spend some time exploring it and testing it out so that you don’t have to waste precious park time fumbling through it when you’re ready to look for your favorite characters at Disney World.
