How many times have you forgotten where your car is when visiting Walt Disney World or the Disneyland Resort?  Some people take pictures of the lot and row number they are parked and others rely on memory.  However, after a long day at the parks your memory may fail you when trying to locate your car.  Disney Parks Blog released news that this problem will be solved much easier with the assistance of State Farm.

With updates on both the My Disney Experience and Disneyland App, resort guests will have the ability to locate their car after a long day.  The app feature will use Location Services, Bluetooth, and Notifications on your mobile device.  This will be available at the Walt Disney World Resort at all four theme parks, both water parks, Disney Springs, and the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.

At both the Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World using their respective apps, guest simply need to open the app and tap on the car locator card on the home screen or use the Features menu. Guests can manually enter their parking location or if Location Services are activated on the phone, the app will add the car’s location for you.  When you are leaving for the day, you can simply open the app and return to the car locator function to retrieve your car’s location.

This new feature in the app will be available at Walt Disney World this summer and later this year at the Disneyland Resort.

The My Disney Experience and Disneyland app offer a variety of features including Mobile Ordering, Mobile Merchandise Checkout, and Direct-to-room service at the Disney Resorts. This addition to the app makes a great addition to already incredible app for the Disney Resorts.

Are you excited for the Where’s My Car addition to the Disney Resort Apps?  It certainly will save a lot of people from setting off their alarms and walking around confused in the parking lots.
