With the opening of Toy Story Land at Hollywood Studios, Walt Disney World is also offering guests a new mobile app called Play Disney Parks.

The app debuted July 7, the same day that Toy Story Land opened to the public just outside Orlando, Florida.

Entertainment options include interactive themed games, Disney trivia, digital achievements and music playlists.

Scott Andress, vice president of digital guest experience for Disney, says the app is designed to give people an alternative to a "heads-down" cellphone experience. The idea is to turn waiting times for rides into engaging entertainment for families and friends. It is available for iOS and Android platforms and it's free to download and use.

The app can be used at the four parks just outside Orlando and two at Disneyland Resort.
