108. Disney By The Numb3rs App
Back in June of 2011, I wrote an article about the Disney By The Numb3rs website. It is a great place to visit when you are looking for anything numerical related to the Disney parks and resorts. Whether you are searching for ride capacities, attraction sizes, or construction costs, DisneybytheNumbers.com is the place to go. You can pretty much find any facts about Walt Disney World that include numbers. I use this site on a regular basis to look up information for articles that I write. The site's creator, Tony Caselnova, has recently taken Disney By The Numb3rs to the next level. He partnered up with Joe Fratianni who developed the corresponding iPhone app.
The Disney By The Numb3rs app, known as DBTN, came out on March 21st of this year. Now you can have all of the website's Walt Disney World numerical facts in the palm of your hand. It is a great app that is organized by park, by land, and finally by specific attraction. Whether you want to know what year an attraction debuted or how many ride vehicles it contains, this is an app you'll enjoy. It is great fun for trivia buffs or even just casual Disney fans.
DBTN app is to help pass the time while waiting in the lines at Walt Disney World. Instead of mindlessly shuffling through the hour long queue while waiting to ride Peter Pan's Flight, you can take out your iPhone and learn a little about the attraction. You can also amuse other people in line by showing off your newly acquired knowledge. For example, you could be the one to inform the guests around you that Peter Pan is a ride that lasts 2 minutes and 45 seconds. Actually, that may be a fact that you want to keep to yourself, especially if the people around you have been waiting for close to an hour!
The DBTN app is an absolute "must have" for anyone who enjoys DisneybytheNumbers.com. For those who haven't seen the site, I'm happy to be introducing it to you. You can also read my article about the site here. Tony Caselnova is a Walt Disney World enthusiast who obviously enjoys bringing us interesting info about Walt Disney World, and he updates his website on a regular basis. Joe Fratiani is a talented app developer who has several Disney apps available over at iTunes. I recently reviewed his "Days to go WDW" app in an article I wrote back in March. Both Tony and Joe are very good at what they do and I highly recommend checking out the DBTN app. It is certainly worth the $.99 price tag!
Have a Disneyriffic day and remember to keep moving forward. See ya real soon!
