    This is the WDW secrets app. I downloaded it a couple of months ago.. it's so large, I haven't had the time to read it all, but it has some interesting tidbits and unpublished secrets in it.


    I also have all the US Disney Park maps on the Iphone, which are great when your looking for the nearest bathroom and you've lost your map.
    I'm not bad. I'm just drawn that way.

    Actually, there are two of them, one is secrets and the other is general about WDW.

    And, HELLOOOOO.... don't just say you have the maps, where did you get them? ::

    Sorry for the delay Blue, had to go in search of my iphone to see who makes them.

    It is a pretty simple app, yet cool.. you can use your current location while in the parks, search individual attractions, dining, etc.

    Search the parks individually to find the maps in the App store.

    Sorry had the wrong name it's www.upinpoint.com

    While looking it up for you, I just noticed there have been lots of new Disney apps added over the last few weeks in addition to the others.

    I don't have kids, but Walt Disney has the Fairies, Rhinoball and a character card game.. New apps others have created include Dining, trivia, etc. There is even a Disney vacation spending tracker? Now that's something I'd never want to know!

    Default Walt Disney World iPhone Apps

    Yes, the Walt Disney World iPhone App mentioned above is brand new. It's different from the Walt Disney World Secrets App.

    The Walt Disney World Secrets App has also been updated / replaced. It now has a new engine which breaks out all the content, as well as the added Hidden Mickeys tour and WDW fun facts.

    I used the maps during our visit last week! It was great! I could also get ride information, like duration of the ride. I read some of the "secrets" and it was pretty interesting

    I am wondering does it actually give you ride wait times, parade times, fast pass info, ect. Or is it basically a guide book on your iphone?

    Besides the 2 aps listed here there are also apps available for each park which provide maps of the parks and Downtown Disney. some of the map apps have been updated to show you where in the park you are using the iPhones GPS capabilities. Really cool.

    There is another app called WDW Dining which has the menus of all the restaurants on property as well as prices (subect to change). This app also lets you know if the app is part of the Disney Dining Plan and has a direct link to WDW Dining so you can call and make a reservation.

    Yup, I snagged that one yesterday... Being an Ipod Touch owner, not an Iphone owner, the calling thing doesn't work for me, but the menus are great and it says they will be updated for free.

    Are any of these apps auto-updated? So you could get park hours or parade times, or even better so you could get wait times for certain attractions?

    There are no wait times displayed on the app. Because it is not Disney owned there is no way for the app to retrieve that current information.

    Of course there is nothing stopping Disney from doing this type of app in the future.

    The WDW Guide is only a guide, but the WDW Secrets may be of interest to anyone not familiar with them.

    The maps are cute, again no wait times. However, you can search by category or location or have it mark only attractions, restrooms or dining.. depending what your looking for. It will use your GPS to show your current location in a park. The artwork is easy to look at and you can zoom in and out. I posted a link to the maps above.

    I guess my question is, would this be of any use to us Intercotees who are WDW veterans, and know the parks like the back of our hand?

    Exactly! Who needs 'em?

    I see there are several other WDW guide apps popping up all of a sudden.
