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.
Out now is the all new 2013 Walt Disney World Park Maps! Jam packed with all new goodies including Photopass, Fantasyland, and much more. I love the new design. Very clean and stylish while not being overloaded with info that you can’t see everything you need too. You can download them here or over on our Disney Map Page.
Check them out and let me know what you think.
More maps after the jump.
For someone that hasn’t been to Walt Disney World very often, there can be a lot of things to decide upon when you are planning your trip. One of the biggest things that people overlook is how to tell your child, wife, or other significant person that you are taking them to Disney World on a vacation! If you are taking your children, one of the greatest things that I have found to “spill the beans” are the . These are special maps that you can order free of charge from the Disney World website once every six months. They are printed with all of your favorites listed for each of the parks, and they come on oversize, durable paper so that you can keep them as a souvenir for years to come. My wife and I gave them to our daughter as a means of telling her we were going when we stayed at Coronado Springs in 2007, and she loved taking the dots and star stickers that came with the maps and putting them on to mark her favorite things that she wanted to try and the resort we were staying at.
There are two designs that you can choose from, the classic design (pictured above) and the character design (shown below). Personally, I prefer the classic design; even though you can’t tell from the image above, the paper reminds me of the type of parchment paper that you would see the location of buried treasure marked on. However, this time around we ordered the character design, which shows a different character for each of the parks. For Magic Kingdom, the character that is shown is Dumbo, for Epcot, Nemo, for Hollywood Studios, Woody, and for Animal Kingdom, Simba. In addition to the style of map you want, you can also select your own favorite locations, or you can choose favorites based on an age range.
In order to order the maps, you do have to have an account at Disneyworld.com. In addition, you need to provide your address so that they can be mailed to you. I’m sorry, but the maps can only be sent to addresses in the United States. However, one thing that you can do if you live outside the US is to print out the maps yourself! This isn’t quite the same feel as getting them in the mailbox, but it’s the next best thing. You can also print them out at home at any time if you are waiting out your six-month window between ordering for home delivery.
If you are looking for a neat, free Disney keepsake, keep the Customized Maps in mind and order a set, even if you don’t have a trip planned yet!
