‘Disneyland Explorer’ for iPad Brings Disney Parks Magic Everywhere (Video)

Disneyland Explorer app for iPadWhether you’ve never visited the Disneyland Resort or have visited it a thousand times, a new official app will help guests bring a taste of the magic everywhere with the new ‘Disneyland Explorer‘ app for Apple iPad devices.

Rather than using the hub-centric layout of the park, Disneyland Explorer creates what is essentially a panoramic view of Disneyland, Disney California Adventure and the Disneyland Resort Hotels. As you pan across lands and attractions, you’ll get a dose of all the sights and sounds with park icons and background music and even characters. The visual experience is enhanced by crude but effective animations such as Dumbo flying over Sleeping Beauty Castle, Casey Jr chugging away in Fantasyland and more. Each of the items provides an element of interactiveness, from tips to photos to immersive, interactive experiences.
