Though you probably aren't thinking about Walt Disney World's My Disney Experience app while all the parks and resorts are shut down, Disney's tech team has actually been hard at work making changes and improvements to the app that you might not have noticed! From fun activities to complete while the COVID-19 shutdown is still in effect, and for when the parks reopen afterwards as well.
1. Disney Parks Art Studio quietly released on My Disney Experience
Several days ago a new section of the My Disney Experience app appeared called the “Disney Parks Artist Studio”. As you might expect, guests who tap this new section of the app (which is currently featured on the front page dashboard) where you can learn how to draw a number of favorite Disney characters. Currently, the first (and only) character available is Mickey Mouse, but more character drawing tutorials will be added in the near future.
2. Mickey and Minnie Trivia also now available for players at home
Earlier this month Disney released Mickey & Minnie’s Trivia Time – Mouse Rules Apply!, a new trivia game in the Play Disney Parks app to celebrate the openings of Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway attraction and “Vacation Fun” at Mickey Shorts Theater in Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
This trivia game includes five trivia packs containing hundreds of questions spanning from Mickey and Minnie’s debut in “Steamboat Willie” to today. And while initially some of the trivia packs could only be unlocked after experiencing Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway or “Vacation Fun” at Mickey Shorts Theater, this app-based game is now completely unlocked via the Disney Parks Play App.
