    On map, get directions isn’t popping up. Is that function no longer working?

    Hello, Janice!

    Welcome to planDisney! Having your conscience be your guide is always a good idea, but when you're visiting the Disneyland Resort it's nice to have some extra tricks and technology to help you find your way. 

    The Disneyland Mobile App has a great map feature that can help you navigate the theme parks, Downtown Disney District, and the Disneyland Resort Hotels. I love how you can zoom in and out, scroll across the map, and change the category at the top to show what you're interested in. Just like a magic mirror, right? When you find a ride, character, or restaurant that you want to visit, you can tap on it and then select "Find on Map" to see a more detailed view of that location. However, the magic of the app does have its limits...and there is not currently a "Get Directions" option available. I'm sorry!

    I wonder if you might be thinking of the My Disney Experience App that is used at the Walt Disney World Resort. That app does include a directions feature, I think mainly because the resort is so large and there are so many transportation options. One of my favorite things about the Disneyland Resort is how walkable it all is! While having a map is helpful (you can also pick up paper copies at the parks, which my kids love) I think you'll find that you'll be able to find your way around well.

    The Disneyland Mobile App does have a few other tricks that are super useful! I really appreciate that the app includes the option to place mobile food orders, especially at popular locations like the Jolly Holiday Bakery Cafe. I also use the mobile checkout feature in the app to buy souvenirs quickly! So handy!

    Janice, I wish I could be your personal navigator at the Disneyland Resort! But I have no doubt that you'll know your way around in no time at all. Hope to see you at the parks real soon!

    Keep moving forward!
