Wi-Fi Now Available at the Magic Kingdom

Back in March, Walt Disney World made high-speed wireless internet service available to those staying within its resorts. Now, Disney has taken the first step in making access to free wi-fi a reality within its parks: guests can now connect to the internet sans wires in the Magic Kingdom.

In order to give the new wi-fi a try when at MK, guests with wireless-enabled devices using AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile and MetroPCS can connect to Disney's network. Once the device is on, guests can select the network (Disney-Guest), opt to connect with it and then will be ready to surf the net once accepting the terms and conditions. (If a guest has already accepted these terms and conditions when connecting at a resort, it might not be necessary to do so again when in the park.)

Having trouble connecting either at the park or in the resort? Give Walt Disney World Disney Telecom a call: 407-827-2732.

Disney plans to make its free wi-fi service available at all parks and Downtown Disney over the next few months.

This is awesome! Hoping for full internet everywhere come November! This is going to save the batteries of a lot of phones. I know it will extend the life of my iPhone 4 (But should have the iPhone 5 by then though...)

That's a great question Joell! I'm not sure if that's what it means, but I bet if you called the phone number offered they would be able to give you an answer!

Maybe I am missing the point or I am just a party pooper, but I dont like it. I think people should be more focused on the family and magic around them, then the device they have at the end of their hands. I have seen so many people walk into other people because they had their noses stuck in their phones.

I am excited they finally opened it up for the hotels though.

I can totally understand your point Angels, but sometimes those other people on the end of the phone are family members that had to stay behind and they want to share the magic with.

Also, some of us work when we're at Disney! Great Disney fan site don't just happen. For every single one out there on the web you'll find people who have given up precious time during their vacations to research, photograph, notate, investigate and chronicle their experience so that it can be shared with readers like you!

WiFi in the parks makes it easier to connect so that we can offer real time experiences with our readers and viewers. It opens up possibilities for non-tradtional media that have been difficult to achieve in the past.
