    Does anyone know when the vzw mobile magic app from disney will be available and the cost of this app? I've read it would be a one time fee for the app but have also read it would be a monthly fee. Any information would be appreciated.

    My perusing through various Disney webs/forums says that it will be available "in November" (great for me since I am next going over Christmas).

    I have also read many places that the expectation for cost is $9.95 for a sixth month period.

    Many folks seem to be upset at "such a high fee" for the app. I don't see it as such. I see it as reasonable given what the typical cost of week in Disney ends up being.

    I will absolutely get/use it on this trip in December. That will be my barometer to determine if I will use it going forward on subsequent trips to the World.

    One interesting post I Read elsewhere postulated that the "in park" infrastructure may be similar to that for the Kim Possible adventure at Epcot:

    Disney's Kim Possible World Showcase Adventure | Walt Disney World Resort

    With that point noted, perhaps they may also have mobile magic phones for rent at the parks. So even if you are not a Verizon user, you may be able to rent a device for the day to get the enhanced content. I have seen nothing that supports this as a real possibility, but I could see it as a nice (money making) add on for Disney.




    EDIT: That Kim Possible Adventure seems really cool. That might be the only reason we would go into Epcot on our next trip in December....

    Well, I think we are getting close. After the announcement, I tried going to the mobile side (which will give you the stripped down version).

    Post announcement, you get no connection to the mobile site. then a few days later, it just linked you to the full Disney site. A few days after that it seems to link you to an almost mobile optimixed version of the main site.

    Still, the app isn't there yet, but at least it looks like they are readying the mobile side of things for the non-Verizon folk.

    As long as it's there by Xmas I'll be happy.

    Wow, if Kim Possible is the only reason you would want to goto Epcot, you've either never been there or are ********.

    Taken out of context.....

    My wife and daughter and I have been there many times. There is nothing new there that we haven't really seen or done, except for Kim P.

    We are being taken by my in-laws over Xmas and will have 5 days there (4 full and 1 partial). What I meant is that because of our having been to Epcot several times, we don't want to use one of our 5 days there.

    There is new stuff at Animal Kingdom since we last went (most notably Expedition Everest) and at the Studios (American Idol and several things we never have done like the stunt show).

    Sooooo, across our almost 5 full days, we want to dedicate our time to 3 parks (MK, AK, and HS).

    Given how the crowds are likely to be, we feel this is one of our best ways of handling things.

    One user on the Disboards forum just posted (baed on what they read somewhere) that the app will release on the 10th, tomorrow.

    I also read, but don't have any validation, that another user stated that "since the app/development started so long ago, the app may be BREW only and modern Windows Mobile or other Smartphones won't work."

    Sounds like an iphone user to me. I would actually surmise that the delay (from original announcement in 2007?) to make sure they incorporated enough platforms.

    We'll see........



    If in fact it is released tomorrow and you rush to download, don't forget the main app will only provide the real time wait time/fastpass data in park. So don't think it is not working if you cannot get that data.

    This app comes out tomorrow, November 10. It will be $10 for 6 months. Totally worth it. I think you have to text "Magic" to 2777.

    Doesn't look like it is live yet.

    I texted "Magic" to 2777 and got the following response almost immediately:

    Either the specified keyword is not valid or the application is no longer available for purchase. Please text a different keyword for a different purchase.
