    With the discontinuation of the shop Disney parks app, will shop Disney honor the annual passholder discount?

    Hi, Lauren! This is a really great question, so I am glad you stopped by to chat with us! I frequently used the Shop Disney Parks app to purchase must-have items for my daughters or to look for items while in the parks. I loved the map feature that showed you all the places nearby that currently had available stock! Just last November, I remembered that I wanted to get one of the Tiki Bird spirit jerseys for my older daughter as a Christmas present. While sitting at The Plaza Restaurant, I pulled it up on the Shop Disney Parks app and saw that it had finally been restocked at a merchandise location right around the corner. I excused myself under the guise of running to wash my hands and picked up that Christmas present without her even knowing about it! How magically handy is that?

    The Disney Parks Blog just recently shared some news about the Shop Disney Parks app. Instead of fully going away, it is actually being streamlined into our My Disney Experience mobile app. Check to make sure you have the latest update of the app and you should see a section on the main page and within the menu for Shop Merchandise. If you go through the My Disney Experience mobile app, then you can use your Annual Passholder or Disney Vacation Club membership to apply the appropriate discount. I was glad to see that going through the app will also still give me the ability to use the handy availability map! From what I understand, the map and the discounts will only be available when shopping through My Disney Experience mobile app, but not when using the new shopDisney mobile app. So make sure you use the right app!

    Thanks again for stopping by and please let us know if you have any other questions.
