    Verizon & Disney Mobile Magic Ads?! But 3G service in the parks?!

    Hi Everyone,

    There are lots of threads and posts about phone coverage in the parks... its not great for any provider... and many of us have experienced this first hand.

    With Verizon being the official mobile partner of the parks... and co branding and promoting an exclusive app (Disney Mobile Magic) one would think that their data services that the app requires would be reliable in the parks. Most of us have experienced how the spotty 3G data connections make the app useless.

    I have written to Verizon about this and would encourage anyone else interested in it to as well. I emailed them... It might be wishful thinking... but I always feel like complaining is useless unless you at least do what you can to let the parties know you are dissatisfied. Verizon can beef up their network, or unlock wifi... they are partners with Disney... they are spending lots of money on a national tv campaign... they can make the service reliable.

    Below is the contact page for verizon

    FYI, the app is not exclusive to verizon anymore. Anyone can get it.

    Well on android at least...not sure about the iphone.

    its available now for the iPHONE...But I think the problem is less about coverage and more about electrical interference. Unless Disney showed some real heart and opened a WiFi connection I doubt anyone will ever get premium coverage

    WiFi is available throughout DTD and the Disneyland hotels, so I wouldn't think it would be that hard for them to offer it in the parks. I'm sure it's just something that's on the very end of the "to do" list for money being spent on the parks.
