  • [Question] Wifi in DL and DCA???

    Hey everyone was wondering if there is Wifi in the park? I remember once Disney partnered with Nintendo and did the virtual guide with the DS.

    I have an iPod touch and was thinking of getting the Walkee program. I like the idea that people put in the wait times for rides to plan your day and menus to the restaurants. I don't want to get it if there isn't Wifi because the program would be pointless.

    There is no wifi in Disneyland last time I checked which was in February. They do have some but it has passwords and is probably for their Point Of Sale system. Fantasmic! has its own wifi too but blocked by password.

      I use a Touch @ the resort, but only in the Hotels. You can walk into the courtyard of the Grand Californian and logon.

        Darn I was hoping there would be Wifi in the park. I really like the idea of looking up the menus finding a great place to eat and have the map show you where its at. Instead of trying to stare at the map and figure out where its at and where you are at.

        Plus the idea of logging wait times and placing your favorite rides in a queue and it calculates the best order is a time saver. I also heard that they are adding a chat program in the future so you can chat with other people in the park. I really hope public Wifi becomes more mainstream or Verizon gets an iPhone, lol.

        Come on Disney you raised ticket prices you should have enough covered to open up your Wifi.

          Well, other than the itouch, i think disney has no wifi because people just usually dont bring their laptops to the park and sit around all day on it.

            A friend of mine brings her laptop to the park and does her homework on a bench on Tom Sawyer's Island.

                Last time I went which was this past Wednesday, there were Wi Fi points, they just required passwords. :P Yeah I was hoping to look up the wait times for the attractions but I needed Wi Fi to look at them so yeah.

                  I see no justifiable reason for Disney to add WiFi, especially not free. If you are using WiFi (and a large portion of WiFi users do NOT have iPhones) on your laptop, then you are not spending money on shops and restaurants, or to a lesser point, enjoying your day at Disneyland. A flock of people with laptops would clog up every cafe, and its just not Disney...

                    Do they require a password?

                      A LOT of phones now have Wifi... HTC has promised to include wifi in all of their upcoming phones now, so yeah... wifi isn't just for laptops.

                      edit: there's also wifi digital cameras now, and wifi SD Card uploaders.

                        I broadcast my own WiFi hotspot at TSMM...but it's locked so, no beans.

                          Exactly! The mobile revolution is really just beginning. And I disagree with another poster who thinks Wi-Fi would hurt Disney sales. I think just the opposite. A helped guest is a happy guest.

                            There's wifi in park but is password locked and typically used for their equipment. For example, I found wifi in the golden horseshoe but had a password. My guess is that they use it to sync their tablet which controls the outdoor audio for laughing stock with the main controller. I am sure that there's more around the park, but don't count on it connecting you to the web.
