The NEW and IMPROVED MDE App for Android

Went to play around with my MDE app last night before we head to AK on Saturday. I booted it up for the first time in a few weeks, and it told me that I had to grab the update before I could use it. Update, heck - it unloaded the thing and reloaded a much improved version!

So much more user friendly than the other one: more interaction from a single screen; FP+ and reservations are now on the home page; dining reservations from the map; wait times on the map; the only thing that still needs some work is the FP+ section - PLUS, after playing around with it for over an hour, I realized that it hadn't crashed once! (I never made it more than 10 minutes before). I must have reserved and cancelled 4 or 5 days worth of FP+ and 3 or 4 dining reservations.

If you haven't played with it lately, I suggest grabbing the update!

Now, if they'd only improve the website version too...

All of this sounds amazing, but the not crashing part...game changer! When we were there in March, I was ready to throw my phone a few times. It was so frustrating, and forced me to be glued to my phone longer than I wanted to be.

LOVE the new update for the app. Was able to add a couple more dining reservations from it last night. It seems way more user friendly and the look is so much nicer! Can't wait to use it in September at the parks!

The new wait times don't go past 60 minutes. The wait times on the new version if they go past 60 minutes show up as 60+.

There's no way I'm waiting 60 min for a ride anyways so 60+ min is enough info for me! eek

Well I think they fixed that with a newer update. My new android phone doesn't support the app. Sad
