Websites and Apps for an Orlando vacation

As a follow-up to my “Best Guidebooks for a Disney Vacation”, here are some recommended apps and websites for your trip.

Apps I plan to use:

  • My Disney Experience– the official Disney app- good for tracking reservations for restaurants and rides, maps, show times and photo packages.
  • Universal Studios official App
  • Undercover Tourist Orlando– touring plans for Disney, Universal, and Sea World, ride wait times, maps.
  • Find My iPhone find friends.  Built in to your iPhone, if you accept friend requests you can track their location and show your location to them- hopefully this will help my daughter find us when we split up.
  • Pokemon GoPlants Vs. Zombies HeroesTetris– for waiting in lines for my very wriggly son.
  • Overdrive digital library.  I can bring a bunch of ebooks and audiobooks on my iPad, checked out from the public library.  I also plan to use the digital magazines on Flipster.
  • Google Photos– automatically upload photos to storage. (note, after I got it all set up, hubby switched us to Amazon Prime photos, so now we are doubling our backups!)


If you have an app or website that helped you on a previous trip, put it in the comments!

  1. I love the friends one! One warning, though – my father set that up so he could watch us as we drove to the reunion two years ago. We discovered that the person who sets it up has huge control of the other people’s phones – we couldn’t buy anything in any app without his permission, among other things. Felt a bit like I’d been turned into a teenager again. Obviously I wouldn’t expect this to bother Kira, but it might bother you or Craig.
