Just how much will you be able to do at Disney World with a cell phone?
Written by Robert Niles
I'm on the road and don't have time for a full post but I wanted to let folks talk about the new Disney/Verizon deal that's all over the news.Tweet
Basically, at some point in the future it will allow Disney theme park guests with Verizon network phones to access attraction wait times via their phones, as well as to get park maps and "Pal Mickey"-style messages as they roam the park.
If you aren't on Verizon, you are out of luck. Verizon's deal starts next year in Epcot with a Kim Possible tie-in. No ETA that I've found for the cell phone functionality.
Thoughts? (I'd give a link but I'm writing on my iPhone and can't copy and paste.)
Update: Here's the release.
