    How do I know when My Disney Experience app version is ready to update?

    Greetings Deborah! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Thanks for bringing us your vacation planning question. We're always happy to help with all things Disney!

    I'm glad to see you plan on using the My Disney Experience app during your upcoming Walt Disney World adventure. I love how many things I can accomplish during my vacation through the app! It's incredible that from the palm of my hand, I can make and modify FastPass+ selections, reserve dining, check attraction wait times, view Disney PhotoPass pictures, and more; it is an indispensable tool for my family. 

    I am happy to help ensure that you have the most up to date version of the app. If you have an iPhone like I do, you can manage your settings so that all apps automatically update. To do this, click on the Settings button, then scroll down and click on iTunes & App Store. Locate the option to update apps automatically, and switch it on. By doing this, your My Disney Experience app will always be current.

    If you prefer to not use the automated setting, you are able to update your app manually by first opening the App Store. Next, tap your profile icon in the top right corner of the screen. Scroll down and tap Update next to the app you would like to update. If you have the latest version of My Disney Experience, you will not see that app listed as available to update.

    To update the My Disney Experience app manually on an Android, open the Google Play Store app. Tap Menu, then My Apps & Games. Anything with an available update will be labeled "Update." To update apps automatically, open the Google Play Store app. Tap Menu, followed by My apps & games. Select the My Disney Experience app. Tap More, and then click to enable auto update. 

    I hope that helps as you navigate the electronic planning process. If you have any other questions as your vacation to the Most Magical Place on Earth nears, please come back and see us again. 

    You've got a friend in me!
