Just how much will you be able to do at Disney World with a cell phone?
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.
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.
Great idea, but it's surprising they didn't do it earlier. As much as I hate cell phones, they can be useful for little things like this.
wow... this is surprising and odd...
No. But , to be honest, I don't see much here that I really need. I have the TPI ratings and reviews on iPhone. I just need to build a GPS- enabled park map now. :-)
Okay, let me get this straight. Steve Jobs runs Disney. Steve Jobs runs Apple. Apple owns the iPhone. The iPhone only works with AT&T. Verizon gets the Disney contract. What am I missing?
Here's a link to the full story:
My husband has Verizon for his work telephone and HATES it. Good coverage, but their service is horrible.
As for the Jobs/Disney/Apple connection....
Well the Disney Cell Phones went bust so I would be concered as Verizon. Still not as cute as Pal Mickey!
