You may have noticed that a new app from TimeStream Software has hit the iTunes App Store – you may have even read the news here on DisTECH. It’s now time to take a closer look at Walt Disney World Pro. How does it do as a planning/tour guide? How does it stack up against the competition? Are the wait times accurate? We’ll take a look at all of that and a little more right after the break!

It’s official! Walt Disney World Pro is now available in the Apple App Store! The app runs $4.99, and will work on the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad (requires iOS 4.0). This also means that I’ll have a full review up and ready for viewing soon. For now, check out the press release after the jump.
Today, I’ve got some more information to share with you on Walt Disney World Pro, the new App coming from TimeStream Software. Here’s the info straight from the source:
In addition to highly-detailed (and fun) Maps, Wait Times, WDW Restaurants, Attractions, Park Hours, Events and more, TimeStream Software’s new “Walt Disney World Pro” app includes in-depth descriptions, room information, resort amenities lists and large photos for 18 different “on-property” resorts at Walt Disney World. All self-contained, guests can now review resort choices and plan their trips wherever they are, as no Wi-Fi or Internet connections are needed. And because already it’s formatted for the device, there’s no frustrating pinching, zooming, scrolling or tiny fonts found with reviewing online hotel web sites.
This section of the app will feature tabs that allow you to switch between the “Description”, “Rooms”, and “Amenities” sections for each hotel. According to TimeStream Software, this is the only Walt Disney World related app that allows you to do this.
That’s all for now, but keep your browsers pointed to DisTECH for more updates!
The last bit of new info we had on Walt Disney World Pro from TimeStream Software was that the new app will feature an astounding 600+ photos. Today, I’ve learned some of the features the app will tout. It will include detailed maps, wait times, park hours, and information on dining and attractions, along with tips for vacation planning and touring. The image above shows more of the information you’ll find in Walt Disney World Pro.
This looks like it could be a killer app! Stay tuned for more as it comes!
This just in! I received a new teaser image for “Walt Disney World Pro” today, along with a few new details. Apparently the app will feature over 600 original photos taken by the TimeStream Software staff. Most of these photos will be original to this new app, and there will be multiple large photos per attraction.
Judging by the images above, “Walt Disney World Pro” looks pretty comprehensive. There are even images from holiday parties, including the Boo-to-You Parade from Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. The Dream Lights are also included.
I’ll have more info as it becomes available. Stay tuned!
TimeStream Software, the same company responsible for a great lineup of Notescasts, has released an image of a new iPhone app in the works. Dubbed Walt Disney World Pro, the app will be a new comprehensive guide to Walt Disney World complete with the “most detailed 2D maps of Walt Disney World Resort available on any device.” The image above shows you what to expect from the maps.
It certainly sounds intriguing, so stay tuned for more information and images. I’ll have more for you soon!
Mike of TimeStream Software (the people responsible for the Disney Notescasts for the iPod and iPhone) sent me these pictures a few weeks ago. I thought you would enjoy taking a look. This first picture (above) was taken around sunset, and you get to see some of the construction happening. The picture below shows the east side of the resort.
It will have 359 hotel rooms, 481 time-share units, restaurants, a convention center, a 15,000 square-foot spa and a massive water play area overlooking the lagoon, which will feature a volcano tube slide and snorkel lagoon. It’s located on 21 acres on Oahu’s Leeward coast in the Ko Olina development, located about 1/2 hour from Honolulu. It’s currently scheduled to open August 29, 2010, with hotel reservations to begin next month.
Mike also notes that time share sales started three weeks ago (I got the email on July 29, so I guess that means sales started six weeks ago). He also mentioned that he saw Disney reps on the beach side of the construction site answering questions for any curious passerby.
Thanks to Mike from TimeStream Software for the pictures!
