What to Know
- Disneyland park and Disney California Adventure reopened on April 30, 2021
- The Disneyland app has ways to place food orders, check wait times, and more
- The chance to join the virtual queue for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance in Galaxy's Edge is one of the app's features
The Happiest Place on Earth is back, following a pandemic-related closure of 412 days, and while excitement among returning fans is high, questions about navigating the world's most famous theme park are understandably plentiful.
To help visitors make the most of their days at Disneyland park and Disney California Adventure, there is the Disneyland app, which is full of features that help guests understand wait times, order food, and, yes, join the virtual queue for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance in Galaxy's Edge.
Of course, the app existed before the Anaheim theme parks closed in the face of the pandemic in March 2020, but, now more than ever, visitors will be using its features as they navigate some of the new policies and recently put-in-place protocols.
Mobile ordering, a popular perk prior to the spring of 2020, is a centerpiece of the app. There are ways to peruse menus, and adding your name to a restaurant's mobile walk-up list, if you didn't make a reservation? That can happen, too.
If you do happen to have a reservation, you can check in on your phone, further streamlining the process.
Purchasing the New Disney PhotoPass+ One Day through the app will also give people who'd like to strike a pose in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle, and elsewhere, an easy way to secure those snaps. The price is $19.99.
And if you're shopping at World of Disney in Downtown Disney District? There's a zippy way to check out, via a QR code, via the Disneyland app.
