Disney's official theme parks apps are some of the most useful in the industry, allowing you to manage tickets and reservations as well as navigate the parks. But despite their helpfulness, the Disney resort with the highest average annual park attendance hasn't had one.
That's changing next month, when the Tokyo Disney Resort finally gets its own official app.
The resort announced that its app will debut on Apple's App Store and Google Play store on July 5. The app will look like the familiar apps for Disney's other theme park resorts, including Disneyland and Walt Disney World. You'll be able to see where you are in the parks, get current wait times for all attractions and link your park ticket to the app to use it to collect and use Fastpass reservations.
It does not appear that the Tokyo Disney app include an option like Maxpass or Fastpass+ to enable guests to make Fastpass reservations without having to visit a Fastpass ticket machine in the park to scan your phone screen. But visitors will be able to use the app to enter the ticket lotteries for Tokyo Disney shows that use a lottery system in lieu of Fastpass to distribute tickets. In addition, visitors will be able to make restaurant and hotel reservations via the app and to check into the Disney Ambassador hotel.
The resort also said that it will add an online souvenir shopping feature to the app at some point in the future, which I believe would be a first among the Disney theme park apps. (Correct me if one of the other resorts already has this.)
The Tokyo Disney Resort is the only of the six Disney theme park resorts around the world not owned at least in part by The Walt Disney Company. Owned by Oriental Land Co., the Tokyo Disney Resort (which includes Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea) is operated under license from Disney.
