Disney Announces Car Locator Feature

Disney partnered with State Farm recently, and now it looks like that partnership is paying off for Walt Disney World or Disneyland Resort Guests who drive to visit the Disney Parks and Disney Resorts! The Disney Parks Blog has announced a Car Locator feature that can be found on the My Disney Experience (and that will be available on the Disneyland apps in the near future, too)!

According to the blog post on the Disney Parks Blog, “Car locator is a complimentary feature that uses location technology to find and save your parking details. The feature functions best when you enable Location Services, Bluetooth, and Notifications on your mobile device”.

You can use this car locator feature at the Disney Parks in Walt Disney World Resort (i.e. the Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, EPCOT, and Hollywood Studios) as well as Disney Springs, Disney Water Parks, and the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. There will be a car locator card in plain sight on the home screen of your My Disney Experience app (and you can also access it in the Features menu).

In order to use the service, simply enter your details about where you parked your car — and if you’ve enabled location permissions on your device, then it will be even easier to find your car in the Disney parking lot! Since a Disney parking lot is typically full of cars, and Guests are often distracted or tired after a long day in a Disney Park like the Magic Kingdom, it can be particularly hard to remember where a car was parked.

A service like this would be helpful for almost any parking lot, but particularly helpful at a huge place like Walt Disney World Resort or Disneyland Resort? Are you going to use this new car service from Disney and State Farm?
