Walt Disney World will be releasing new, updated versions of park maps next week. This will be the first time since the 1990′s that any major changes have been made to the Disney Parks maps. The front of the map will have a QR code in the bottom left corner that will connect Disney World guests with the My Disney Experience app.
Our friends at WDW News Today has a sneak peek at them here.
Have you heard about the new My Disney Experience app? This app allows guests to view theme park maps, theme park hours, make dining reservations, and even view wait times for attractions. This app contains information on all four Disney theme parks, both water parks, Downtown Disney, and even all of the Disney resorts. You can also find dining information including menus. This app has inspired these changes coming to Disney Parks Maps.
This will not be the only difference you’ll see in the new maps. There will only be select merchandise locations listed on the map too. This will give the maps a less crowded feel and encourage guests to take advantage of the new app.
The maps will also remind guests of the free Wi-Fi that is available to all Walt Disney World Resort guests.
Although the maps will have a small section of the brochure dedicated to special event information, it will not be comprehensive. Rather, it will again direct guests to find full information on the My Disney Experience app.
This is just one of many changes coming to the Walt Disney World Resort as a result of the new MyMagic+. Be on the look out for the new FastPass+ and Magic Bands coming soon!
