"eTicket" iPhone application acts as guide to Disney parks

A new application for the iPhone and iPod Touch promises to give visitors to Disney's U.S. theme parks access to information on attractions and restaurants in the palm of their hand.

eTicket includes details of 2,700 locations at the Disneyland and Walt Disney World resorts. The information is drawn from the WFWInfo.com website, and access is also provided to the popular Disboards.com forums.

The application uses regularly-updated menus to allow searches for restaurants offering a particular dish, and to navigate to them using the iPhone's built-in GPS. Users can also enter details of their itinerary including hotel and flight information, and add custom locations to the map - the location of their car in Disney's sprawling car parks, for instance.

Unlike Disney's own Mobile Magic application, and the recently-released Lines, eTicket does not provide any real-time information such as attraction wait times or details of FASTPASS windows.

Separate eTicket applications are available for Disneyland and Walt Disney World. Each costs $5.99 and both are available through Apple's App Store. A video of eTicket in action is embedded below.
