[prMac.com] Orlando, Florida - Apptasmic today is pleased to announce its latest travel app, Great App for Disney World Wait Times, helping the millions of visitors to the park enjoy more of their favorite rides, attractions, and restaurants while avoiding long lines. The app also features live maps, detailed ride and restaurant information, and more.
Users can see wait times that are updated in real time, so they know which rides and shows to visit next. Great App for Disney World Wait Times is the only app of its kind to show real time dining wait times and be directly integrated with Facebook.
Designed for anyone visiting Walt Disney World, the app gives users "insider" information on hundreds of rides and restaurants to help them have the perfect day at the park. Great App for Disney World Wait Times marks the fifth app to be launched by Apptasmic, the Florida-based app development company that specializes in creating apps for Orlando tourists.
"Our new app is a must have for anyone visiting Walt Disney World," said Michael Flynn, founder of Apptasmic. "It is like two apps in one by giving up-to-date wait times for both attractions and restaurants."
In the past, visitors to Walt Disney World needed to carry maps and heavy guidebooks to find their way around the park and locate their favorite attractions. But even the latest guidebook was not able to have the most up-to-date information on new rides, character appearances, and daily events.
With the introduction of the Great App for Disney World Wait Times, vacationers now have the latest information at their fingertips on their iPhone or iPad. The app features continually updated wait times for Disney World's rides and restaurants at a glance, along with an up-to-date listing of character appearances, parade times, and fireworks shows. The live map shows users exactly where they are in the park using GPS to help them find their way without getting lost.
The app also features detailed descriptions of each ride and show, including if it accepts Fast Pass and height/age requirements. Attractions can be displayed by name, distance, wait time, or favorites.
To help park visitors find the best dining options, Great App for Disney World Wait Times includes a restaurant list with wait times that are constantly updated - a time-saving feature unique to the app. Users can see the type of cuisine, average price, phone number, and if they accept reservations. The app can also list the closest restaurants or show them on a map.

* Helpful "insider" information: View helpful profiles on hundreds of rides and restaurants in Disney World, including Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom, and Downtown Disney
