    I'm very looking forward to using the Disney World app on our trip. I noticed while looking through the wait times for different attractions the wait time is listed in minutes, but some just have a star instead. What does the star indicate?

    Hi, Taryn! My family and I use the The My Disney Experience app constantly while visiting the Walt Disney World Resort. Not only do you have wait times available at your fingertips, you can also change your FastPass+ selections on the go, make last minute Dining Reservations, view Park maps, and keep track of your existing FastPass+ and dining reservation times. The Theme Parks and resorts have complimentary WiFi to keep you connected, which is a big plus in my book! You may want to look into purchasing an external battery charger for your smartphone before your trip so a dead battery won't slow you down!

    While looking at current wait times using your My Disney Experience app, the stars mean that wait times are not applicable for that attraction. It could be an attraction that does not have wait times such as Casey Jr. Splash 'N' Soak Station where you can just run right in and splash around, or a show such as Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room where your wait time would be simply waiting for the next show, or a mode of transportation like Walt Disney World Railroad where you would be waiting for the next train. Another reason an attraction would have a star would be that it is closed. If this is the case, just under the attraction name it would say 'temporarily closed' or 'closed'.

    Have a magical day, Taryn!
