There’s something for everyone to enjoy, from activities that interact with select attraction queues to games that bring favorite Disney stories to life in immersive new ways”.

Thomas Smith on unique app features: “Guests can also earn and share digital collectibles when they receive themed achievements, earned for experiences both in the app and across the Disney parks.
