Disneyland has been around since the 1950s and it's a place that countless tourists are excited to visit at any time of year. When people haven't yet been, they're envious of friends and family who have made the trek, and it really is a place that you have to experience for yourself.

Since using your cell phone is a vital part of the Disney experience, whether you want to take a selfie or look up a nearby place to eat, it's good to be aware that there are hotspots at Disney. Any trip takes a lot of planning, and let the Disney hotspot map be part of your vacation research.


Take a look at this Disney hotspot map before you leave and it's going to be an even more magical vacation.

The Wi-Fi At Disney Won't Cost You Anything

Everyone's phone plan is different and some people have more data than others, which is why being aware of what kind of Wi-Fi exists at Disney is going to make your vacation a lot easier.

According to Popsugar, the Wi-Fi at Disney doesn't cost anything, which is great news. You just need to connect to the network that says "Disney-Guest" and you'll be good to go.

If you're curious about what the Wi-Fi is like, it turns out people have had good experiences with it: according to a Reddit post, a happy Disneyland customer posted, "I used the wifi extensively last weekend and was surprised at how well it worked!"

The Disney California Adventure Hotspot Map Is Awesome

Before going on your Disney trip, it's good to know that, as The Happiest Blog On Earth explains, there are "dead spots" at the parks where your phone isn't going to work. These are going to be found at the majority of places where you wait inside for rides and on the rides themselves.

That's why the Disney Hotspot Map is so helpful. You can find a Disney Hot Spot Map for Disney California Adventure.

Popsugar notes the hotspots are at a variety of places, including Flo's V8 Cafe, which has the feel and vibe of an old-school diner. The map also notes that Sarge's Surplus Hut and Pacific War are hotspots. If you're not afraid of heights and can handle the ride Soarin' Around The World, this is a hotspot too (but you might not want to use your phone on it...). The map also includes  Paradise Garden, Paradise Pier, Hollywood Land, Carthay Circle, and Grizzly Peak.

Check Out The Disneyland Hot Spot Map

According to The Happiest Blog On Earth, there are tons of places at Disneyland on the hotspot map.

You can use your phone on Pirates of the Caribbean, Peter Pan's Flight, and the Haunted Mansion. Since those are really popular places, that's good to know. Other hotspots include Tomorrowland and Space Mountain, two other rides that you will most likely check out during your time at Disneyland. This is helpful since not every ride has great Wi-Fi. The map also includes Rivers of America, Small World Promenade, and Rancho del Zocalo. You can also use your phone at the Information Board which is on Main Street and close to Jolly Holiday Bakery Cafe (where you can pick up an iconic Mickey Sugar Cookie or Raspberry Rose Mickey Macaron).

The most convenient of all is Central Plaza, which is located close to the Mickey Mouse and Walt Disney statue on Main Street.

You Don't Want To Spend The Whole Trip On Your Phone

One reason why the Disney hotspot map is so convenient is that you'll know which areas to get out your phone and which places you can put them away and enjoy your fun and magical vacation.

While of course, Disneyland is a wonderful place for selfies and photos, since you want to catch the Haunted Mansion IRL or see the beautiful castle that shows up in so many social media posts, you definitely don't want to be staring at your screen the whole time. There are so many fun things to do, from trying the Mickey Mouse-shaped cookies to going on as many rides as you can. Checking out the Disney Hot Spot Map is a good reminder that since the Wi-Fi is only awesome in certain places, you're free to relax and focus on having a good time.

Whether you visit Disneyland or Disney California Adventure, checking out the Hot Spot Maps before leaving for your trip will help ensure that you make the most of the free Wi-Fi while you're there. And less time worrying about whether your phone will work is more time taking in the magic.
