Disney is constantly innovating and discovering new ways to bring the latest technology into its theme parks.
The My Disney Experience and Disneyland apps changed the Disney park experience for guests everywhere. We’ve recently seen Disney Genie+ roll out in both Disney World and Disneyland, and MagicBand+ is set to debut in Disney World sometime this year. But now, it looks like yet another new feature will be rolling out in the Disney parks this year — and it might just save you some time at the end of a long day!
We’ve probably all been there — walking to your car at the end of a full day in the parks, feet tired and aching, maybe a crying kid or two in tow with no idea where you parked your car over 12 hours ago. In the past, we’ve suggested finding a Cast Member and letting them know what time you arrived — oftentimes they can give you a general idea based on the time you parked.
But soon, there will be a NEW way to find your car in the parking lots of both Disney World and Disneyland Resort — the car locator from State Farm. This feature will first launch on the My Disney Experience app for Disney World this summer, followed by a launch on the Disneyland app later this year.
Wondering how it’ll work? All you’ll have to do is open the My Disney Experience app on your phone and tap the car locator card. Then, you can enter your parking information (or let Location Services do it for you) and when you’re ready to leave, return to the car locator screen to see your saved info.
According to Disney, the feature functions best when Location Services, Bluetooth, and Notifications are all turned on for the app. Guests will be able to use the car locator at all four Disney World theme parks, Disney Springs, Disney Water Parks, and the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.
