    First time going, What is the best app for Disney world where I can see wait times and make dinning reservations?

    Hiya Jenny - welcome to planDisney!

    I'm so excited to hear that you'll soon be making your first visit to the Walt Disney World Resort - you seriously could not have picked a better time to start making magical memories! The Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Celebration is in full swing - from new nighttime fireworks spectaculars to delectable treats and exciting new attractions, you'll definitely stay busy!

    The My Disney Experience Mobile App is your one-stop shop for all of your vacation planning needs, both prior to arrival and during your vacation. Once you've created your Disney account, you can use either the app or the website to link your Disney Resorts Collection hotel reservation, your theme park tickets, and any dining reservations you've already made. Speaking of dining reservations, you will be able to make those 60 days prior to your arrival. If you're hoping to enjoy some of the more popular options, like the brand new Space 220 Restaurant & Lounge at EPCOT, you'll want to be online, either in the app or website, the morning of that 60-day window! Don't fret though - as other Guests' plans change, new dining availability pops up all the time, so just keep checking if you're not seeing the available reservations you'd hoped for.

    You also mentioned attraction wait times, which are easy to view in the app on a detailed park map, or as a list. That's great for those independent planners, but the new complimentary Disney Genie service, which is built right into the app, ups the ante by providing you with constantly updated custom recommendations for attractions, experiences, and dining, catered to your interests, location, and wait times! You can also upgrade to the Disney Genie+ service for a small daily fee, and gain access to quicker Lightning Lanes at many attractions throughout Walt Disney World Resort!

    I can't wait for you to explore the app and continue planning! Please let me know if you have any additional questions - we're here to help and we love first-time visitors!
