Upgraded Wi-Fi service rolled out across all four parks this week

Mar 27, 2015 in "Internet Access"

Disney has just rolled out an upgrade to the Wi-Fi infrastructure across all four Walt Disney World theme parks.

The update aims to increase performance and network stability for the ever-increasing number of guests trying to use the service. Part of the upgrade has been made possible by removing support for old devices that were connecting on the 802.11b band. This means that owners of some early Wi-Fi phones and iPods will no longer be able to access the Disney Wi-Fi service in the parks.

Due to the importance of accessing My Disney Experience, access to the Internet in the theme park has become a critical part of a day in the parks. AT&T has also been working at improving cell based data services as an alternative to Disney's Wi-Fi service.

We'll be testing the new Wi-FI service over the next couple of weeks, so lookout for an update. If you've experienced the new service over the past few days, let us know on the forum if you found the service to be improved.
