    Re: Disney releases details on upcoming ‘Mobile Magic’ for wait times

    It may have to do with AT&T's reception in the parks...?
    I have an iPhone and i have noticed terrible service in select places in the park.... Specifically Coke Corner, and other parts of Main Street...
    ...and rides... but that doesn't really count.
    I would love for this to come to the iPhone though.
    I currently have WaitWatchers for DL and DCA and it's a pain in the butt. It's one of those peer update Apps... and it's rarely accurate.

    I'm sure Steve Jobs will push for it to be an Iphone app.

    Why verizon you ask? cuz theyre paying for it! basically theyre gonna give each attraction a blackberry and the leads will log in and update wait times and fp return times through out the day. So basically still humans imputing numbers and leads to boot so the info may be less accurate lol.

    This is outstanding. I just got a Blackberry through Verizon, so I will be downloading this as soon as it comes out.

    I wish I knew when that was as we are going to Disneyland in 24 days.

    And this Verizon user says "FINALLY ... in your face Iphone users!!!"

    But honestly, I agree, not sure why this is exclusive to Verizon. Then again, I still don't get why the Iphone is AT&T exclusive.

    I don't really think Steve Jobs cares to be honest.

    As for reception, I heard that it's an issue with AT&T, I've had absolutely NO problem with Verizon. In fact, I didn't even have an issue when I had that crappy T-mobile.

    You know ... "There's a map for that".

    Simple answers in both cases... MONEY.

    Verizon gets advertising a brand awareness from associating with a project like this. By keeping it exclusive, they can offer things like development or other
    resources to Disney in return for advertising and exclusivity.

    Re: Disney releases details on upcoming ‘Mobile Magic’ for wait times

    I have bought EVERY single iPhone App for Disneyland. There are many, and they all have plusses and minuses. However, the single biggest problem with iPhone apps at DLR is that:

    THE ATT 3G NETWORK COVERAGE SUCKS AND IS JAMMED WITH TRAFFIC!

    This basically made all the apps worthless when in the park. I also could never send any pictures or emails from inside the park, even when I had full bars and a 3G signal.

    Re: Disney releases details on upcoming ‘Mobile Magic’ for wait times

    I'm glad to finally see that Verizon is finally getting the hookup over "The great and powerful iPhone". The iPhone gets everything and all other phones get the shaft, which is fine since i'm all for capitalism, but it nice to see something not just exclusive to the iphone.

    Just so you know the app is available Nov 9th and is $9.99 for six months. Yea, it's really lame. They're really gonna make A LOT of money out of this one.

    Finally some android love! I to have a g1, heck I'm posting from it right now. I've used I- phones and hate them. I avoid apple products at all costs.

    The new droid looks awsome btw. Once my contract is up with t-mobile I'll probably switch

    Re: Disney releases details on upcoming ‘Mobile Magic’ for wait times

    For all those complaining about AT&T 3G coverage at DLR, somebody a while back mentioned that there is actually at least one free WiFi network in the park. According to an online source of totally unknown reliability, the password for the internal WiFi network at Disneyland is 'eliasdisney'. If that is, indeed, the correct password, based on the fact that the password is 11 characters, it would have to be WPA personal or WPA2 personal security, since WEP uses either 10 or 26 characters.

    Again, this is not 'known good' inside information. It's just something to try using if you want to upload pics or video from some wireless-capable device and can't get a decent signal from AT&T, or otherwise.
