Earlier this week, D23 released its official app for the D23 EXPO. Needless to say, we are very excited about this! The D23 EXPO 2015 Official Mobile App will help you navigate the D23 EXPO like the seasoned Disney pro you are. Not only can you access a map of the Expo to find out where you need to be, but also there are social links to Twitter and Facebook. All the entertainment, presentations, shopping, photo opportunities, and magic that Disney has in store will be right at your fingertips. This includes maps to help you find everything you need (from stages and stores to photo spots) , the full schedule of presentations and special entertainment, as well as up-to-the-minute info on StagePass availability. You’ll be able to personalize a schedule that helps you make those hard decisions about what to do next a little bit easier, and it’ll help you “shop ‘til you drop” with all Disney and partner stores. You can find it now on the App Store and the Google Play Store.
Official D23 EXPO Trading Card Quest
Along with those great features, there are the Disney Trading cards. Throughout the expo, guests will be able to collect a series of cards. You’ll receive a “starter pack” of cards in your D23 EXPO 2015 Souvenir Guide. Then, throughout the weekend, search for opportunities to collect different cards from locations all over the show floor. Make sure to download the Official D23 EXPO 2015 Mobile App and follow D23 on social media all weekend long, because they’ll be announcing very special card “drops” you won’t want to miss. There are 30 cards in all, and they’ll come together as singles, pairs, and even trios.
Augmented Reality with HP Aurasma
This year, you’ll be able to interact with D23 EXPO in a whole new way, thanks to HP Aurasma’s augmented reality technology. You can access Aurasma just by downloading the D23 EXPO Official Mobile App. Aurasma is an interactive “augmented reality” technology that brings everything around you to unexpected life! Find an Aurasma location, launch the Official Mobile App and open Aurasma in the menu to unlock special content. All you have to do is point your phone at the image, or object to enjoy. And make sure to check out the cover of the D23 EXPO 2015 Souvenir Guide for a special “Aura” to get you started! Aurasma locations are listed in the Guide Map and within the D23 EXPO Mobile App.
