Most people don’t get to tell Disney how to design their  parks, but in this game players can create their own Disney theme park with the help of their favorite characters. A curse has been cast over the Magic Kingdoms, but by unlocking characters and completing quests players can get rid of the curse and built a kingdom full of their favorite rides from the parks and locations from the movies of the characters. The characters currently able to be unlocked are from Toy Story, Monsters Inc., Wall-E, Peter Pan, Tangled, and Mickey and his friends. Players collect magic from characters and attractions after a certain amount of time and then can use the magic to unlock characters and build more objects. As players complete quests, they can unlock more characters and defeat villains like Pete, Zurg, and Mother Gothel.

Many of the missions takes a long time to accomplish without the help of gems, so the app involves a lot of waiting in between being able to play if the player doesn’t want to use in-app purchases. There are also several characters and buildings that are only unlocked through the gems players can get through in-app purchase. There are some glitches, like the notifications being incorrect about when characters complete quests and issues with some people not able to collect daily rewards. Players will enjoy unlocking the characters and being able to have adventures from their favorite Disney movies. Although the app still has some weaknesses, fans of Disney and especially fans of Disney parks will love the opportunity to be able to have their favorite characters and rides at their fingertips without the price of theme park admission.

*In-App purchases are available
