Disney has updated their My Disney Experience mobile app, and it now includes many new features that are long overdue.
Now users can renew their Annual Passes directly through the app, which is incredibly helpful.
However, the best updates come in the form of being able to finally track dining credit usage if you have the Disney Dining Plan as part of your vacation package, and to be able to check on your current hotel balance due at checkout.
If you’re like us, you often use the Disney Dining Plan and it’s incredibly frustrating to have to constantly try and remember what you’ve used or ask a Cast Member for a printout of your remaining credits. On our last trip, we were accidentally charged twice for a meal and were told on the last day we were out of credits. Had the app had this feature then it would’ve saved us a trip to concierge to straighten the mess out.
In addition to all of that you can also now track your spending through the application as it now has access to your hotel portfolio (billing). This way you can track all of the charges you are making to your resort account.

Guests 21 and older can choose either one non-alcoholic beverage (including specialty beverages where offered) or one single-serving mixed cocktail, beer, or wine (where offered) within their meal entitlement.
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla.— This summer Disney Springs is the place to be by day and by night! With a Grand Opening Summer Celebration taking place all season long, Disney Springs features an array of hard-to-pass-up deals and a variety of delectable new dining options at the newest neighborhood–Town Center, plus free nightly entertainment featuring more than 20 different acts performing across all four neighborhoods – The Marketplace, Westside, The Landing, and Town Center.
To kick off the grand opening season, on July 15, the best of summer and Central Florida came together to celebrate Disney Springs-style – in Town Center, with an outdoor party under the stars where guests strolled into all sorts of discoveries designed to delight the senses — renowned chefs serving up scrumptious samples from their restaurants, performances by nationally recognized entertainers, and proprietors showcasing their products and store designs that make shopping at Disney Springs simply special.
Wrapped in Florida-inspired, made-for-strolling promenades, arcing footbridges, flowing streams and waterfront charm, Disney Springs treats Walt Disney World Resort guests to an exciting blend of shopping, dining and entertainment with a Disney touch. By day or night guests can expect a vibrant scene at Disney Springs, whether they are shopping world-class brands, enjoying high-quality entertainment, having that special dining experience, pleasure boating on Village Lake or hopping a balloon skyward for spectacular views of Walt Disney World and beyond.
Now and every day, guests can enjoy the benefits of a dramatically transformed exciting new waterfront district for world-class shopping, unique dining, and high-quality entertainment featuring more than 150 establishments across its four neighborhoods.
Discover Disney Springs like never before! Here are just a few of the highlights:
Town Center – Spectacular Shopping and Award-winning chefs
The Landing – Inspired dining, breathtaking waterfront views, and unique boutiques
The Marketplace — Family-friendly delights for guests of all ages
The West Side – Exuberant entertainment retail and dining options
From new acts at Cirque du Soleil to iconic restaurants to colorful food trucks to bowling with a stylized twist at Splitsville, West Side offers something for everyone. There is even the opportunity to lift off in a tethered balloon. Characters in Flight rises from the banks of Village Lake for eye-popping, 360-degree views (on a clear day you can see Florida’s east coast).
Two new slot-smart parking decks where green lights indicate available spaces make parking convenient to the entire Disney Springs scene – and it’s free. Valet parking also is available. Disney Springs is easily accessed from I-4, Central Florida’s major interstate, and connected to the rest of Walt Disney World Resort by motor coach and watercraft.
