Tokyo Disney finally taps tech as visitors tire of waiting

Smartphone app lets guests do their souvenir shopping in line

Oriental Land hopes that the new app for Tokyo Disney Resort will alleviate crowding at a park that attracts 30 million visitors a year.

TOKYO -- Tokyo Disney Resort operator Oriental Land will roll out a smartphone app in fiscal 2018 to relieve crowding issues that have frustrated guests at the popular theme park.

The app will offer a single platform on which customers can buy tickets, book hotel and restaurant reservations, and view park maps with estimated wait times for attractions. It will also be compatible with the smartphone-based e-ticket system introduced Tuesday.
