Disney, Gowalla Deliver the Magic of Disneyland Resort, Walt Disney World Resort, in a New Way


Years ago it used to be that when you would visit one of the Disney parks, friends and family would have to wait weeks until they saw the hundreds of pictures you took.  Or at family gatherings you would be made to sit through slide shows of little Billy and Susan meeting their favorite characters and screaming their heads off in terror at the site of a huge mouse.  But now, those pictures pop on your phone immediately, with little Billy and Susan still screaming.  But now you can see a video of it happening.  

As of late, the newest trend is for people to earn virtual rewards by checking in to places with their mobile devices.  While many people have added areas in theme parks themselves to sites like Four Square, Disney has now joined with Gowalla to bring park guests virtual Disney items.  By using Gowalla and checking in to specific places throughout the parks, Guests can collect Passport Stamps.  People can then view all the places that people are checking in to by visiting specific web pages.  Disney hopes that this will encourage people to visit places that perhaps they never did before.  You know, like California Adventure.

Gowalla is available to use beginning today at both the Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World.
