The Walt Disney Company recently released an official Disneyland app for the iPad and iPad 2. This app offers iPad users a chance to take a tour around Disney’s Anaheim based theme parks. Disney fans can tap and scroll through Disneyland, California Adventure, Downtown Disney, and the Disneyland resorts. The application includes images, videos, and even interactive
games of the attractions, landmarks, and restaurants of Disneyland. If you’re a Walt Disney World fan who has never made it out to Disneyland, this is a great app.

Another fun feature is the share option. For select attractions, you can send an image via email to a friend or loved one. I sent a good friend of mine a picture of Darth Vader from Star Tours, all without having to leave the app.
Overall, this is a fun application to skim through the sights of Disneyland. The visuals and sound effects are delightful. The best part? It’s free! iPad owners should to the App Store to download it now.
However, the question remains if Disney will release a Walt Disney World version of this app. To us at Guide2WDW, that seems like a no-brainer. A Disney World Explorer app for the iPad would definitely be a lot more work and probably will take more time, as Walt Disney World has many more attractions than Disneyland Resort, and well more hotels and resorts (Disneyland only has two). However, as Disneyland Explorer has been wildly successful on the App Store (it has been the number one free iPad app in the past few days), it seems like Disney would be smart to capitalize on that success and release a version for their Orlando theme parks and resorts.
