32. "Disney World Park Hours" App

Sometimes the simplest apps can be the most useful.  This is definitely the case with the "Disney World Park Hours" app for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.  There are plenty of websites and other sources for Walt Disney World park hours, but this app is probably the quickest and easiest way to get this information.  There are two versions available in the iTunes App Store, one for $0.99 and the other one free.  I use the free version and really don't think there is much of a difference.

This is the second app I'm reviewing by VersaEdge Software.  Earlier this year I posted an article about their Disney World Dining app which is also very impressive.  The Disney World Park Hours app provides you with six months of operating hours from the four major parks as well as the two water parks.  In addition to the normal park hours, you will also see which of the parks has "Extra Magic Hours" for any given day.

Another nice feature of the Disney World Park Hours app is the "Park Event Times" for each park.  You simply choose the date you are looking for and tap on the name of the park you are interested in.  You will get a list of showtimes for all of the major shows, parades, and fireworks displays.  This definitely comes in handy when deciding how you are going to tour the parks while on your vacation.  It can also help when making your dining reservations.

There is really nothing fancy about the Disney World Park Hours app.  It doesn't even require you to be online to view the information, except when downloading an update.  It is simply a great way to quickly see park hours and showtimes.  If you have a portable device that allows you to purchase stuff from the iTunes App store, I highly recommend adding this app to your collection.

Have a Disneyriffic day and remember to keep moving forward.  See ya real soon!
