The new app has four main types of content, which come largely from Disney Publishing Worldwide’s publishing programs and magazine series. Among them:

** Entertaining content: Trivia, inspirational quotes, mini quizzes and a character of the day.
** Magic-At-A-Glance: ‘Up to 20 real-time content notifications a day using Apple Watch Glances to view highlights of unseen content throughout the day. “¦ Tapping the Disney Moment Glance screen takes users to the newest Disney Moment.’
** Swipe and Zoom: Apple Watch’s unique Digital Crown allows users to scroll through and zoom in and out of each Disney Moment.
** Spread the Smile: Users can favorite Disney Moments and then share them on social media platforms, including Facebook and Twitter.

A save feature allows users to save their favorite Disney Moments simply by tapping “Favorites” or “Save” on the Apple Watch app and iPhone app. Once saved, users can share their favorite Disney moments with friends and family through a number of social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter, and more.

Disney Moment costs $5.99 and requires iOS 8.0 and greater and iPhone 5 and above.

Meanwhile, AT&T U-verse customers now will have access to the popular Disney Story Central app on their television screens. Disney Story Central is a subscription service that offers a collection of narrated classic Disney stories for $8 per month.
