Ratings and Reviews
*LIVE* WDW resort channel
For those of you who do not understand what this is, this is a channel that you get on your in-room television while at a Walt Disney World resort. This app is live streaming this exact channel to your phone. The music loops this exact way at Disney - no, the developers can't change that. No, the music won't restart when you open and close it, because it's being LIVE streamed to your phone. If you were at your room at your Disney resort right now with this channel on your tv, this is EXACTLY what you'd see and hear!
I am so happy that I found this! I spend a lot of time at Disney World. This is the channel that I keep my TV on my entire trip. I literally thought I was the only one who loved this channel but I'm so glad I was wrong!
I would have given my review 5-stars, but as some individuals expressed in other reviews, there are some app issues that need to be addressed. When an AD pops up, it messes with the sound and picture. I understand ads are essential to a free app, so 1) there should be a way to have an ad pop up without affecting app performance, and 2) offer a paid option to get rid of the ads. My only other issue at this time is that I would be amazing to be able to have this play in the background if I'm using another app or if the screen is off.
Was great but went downhill real fast
Downloaded this a few days ago & worked great for all of 2 days. Then the pop up ads started which then made the regular viewing screen of "today's schedule" cut off halfway on the iPhone after the ad was closed. As another reviewer said, the sound does cut off from time to time. Sometimes it comes back but other times you have to close and reopen the app. Anytime you exit the app the music quits playing and you have to keep your screen lit the entire time. I'm not sure if this is the actual music that Disney syncs to the channel but it's basically a loop of instrumental Disney tunes with Nutcracker tunes. Awesome idea as I love the music but weak on the function of it. With the half screen glitch - you can't use this apps for park, show times, etc. There are better apps to use including the My Disney Experience App by Disney. Would not recommend this app until an update is done which fixes the glitches.
A few things ...
Let me drop my resume, I am a season pass holder from Pennsylvania and I go 2-3 a year to Disney. Let me first say that this app is genius. I love the concept. I love opening it and going “MK is open until 1 AM tonight!?” I love hearing the music. I love reemerging myself into the bubble.
Having said that, it is certainly not the “actual” WDW Today channel in the resorts. It is clearly a reproduction. And that’s ok. But it needs cleaned up. The times should read “8 am” not “8am” and the transitions are too quick. There are small errors that can be noticeable and if you take a look at the real thing you will notice them. Everything else is pretty close to the real thing. Bravo.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
