Disneyland Pivots from Social Media to Its App for Updates

October 31, 2020, 3:20 PM · The Disneyland Resort is shutting one of its popular Twitter feeds, as it looks to direct more guests to the resort's official app.

Disneyland no longer will be maintaining the @DisneylandToday feed, which it had used to provide operational updates for the resort. The resort now will tweet on its original @Disneyland feed, as well as on the @DisneylandAP feed for annual passholder news. Disneyland also is stopping updates to the DisneylandToday account on Facebook.

Both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure remain closed indefinitely under state of California pandemic guidelines, so most of what's been available on @DisneylandToday recently has been hours of operation and parking updates for the Downtown Disney shopping and dining district, which is open daily to guests. Fans now can find that information on the official Disneyland app.

The app is also the tool you need for mobile orders on food, so we recommend it to anyone visiting the Disneyland Resort who hasn't installed it already. Remember that Disney is expanding Downtown Disney into California Adventure's Buena Vista Street, so you will be able to use mobile order for more restaurants there, too.

When the parks reopen fully, the Disneyland app also provides wait times, virtual queue assignments, and Disney's Maxpass, for guests who buy that upcharge to manage Fastpass reservations on your phone or tablet. And while you're downloading apps, also get the Play Disney Parks app, which you will need to take advantage of all the interactive elements inside the new Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge land.

If you've visited the Walt Disney World Resort, the same Play Disney Parks app you used there also works for the Disneyland Resort. But Disney World's My Disney Experience app won't help you at Disneyland. You will need the official Disneyland app for the latest official wait times, virtual queue assignments and resort operating information. And be sure to enable updates and location services to make full use of the app's features, too.
