Mobile Magic: Disney Park’s new app for wait times

Disneyland all to yourself — a kid’s dream. (A parent’s dream, too, I think.)

Disney is making the inevitable crowds a bit more manageable. They’ve just announced Mobile Magic, the mobile app that announces wait times for rides and the nearest location for a character hug. It can be used at Disneyland and Walt Disney World theme parks.

No, it’s not the first app for wait times at Disneyland, but it’s the first official one from Disney Parks.

And likewise, it’s not exactly flawless — it only works on Verizon Wireless phones. It’s not available on BlackBerrys or the new Motorola Droid.

You can give it a spin for $9.99 for a 180-day subscription.
