The Magic of an Integrated User Experience

Thursday, October 8th

15:30 - 16:15

Details

Disney Parks & Resorts Digital is responsible for creating digital experiences for Walt Disney Parks and Resorts destinations worldwide. As the physical and digital worlds continue to converge, our team has taken responsibility for the end-to-end (digital-plus-physical) Guest experience for digital-led initiatives. These initiatives are those where the digital capability, whether powered through PC, tablet, mobile, wearables, MagicBand or even a Guest’s personal technology, are the key driver of an end-to-end digital-plus-physical user experience.

 

This presentation will follow along with our Guests as they plan and visit Walt Disney World in Florida for a family vacation through the lens of the Disney Parks & Resorts Digital team. Along the way we will illustrate how a company-wide commitment to our Guest experience, aided by the ubiquity of digital technology in our everyday lives and within our theme parks, has enabled us to deliver  user experiences that anticipate our Guests’ needs and help them maximize their vacation experience. These experiences may begin in one place and end in another, and they may reside in both the digital and physical domains, so an integrated approach to user experience is key to the magic of a Disney vacation.
