Love it or hate it, the My Disney Experience app gets used A LOT when you are at WDW. So here is a little tip to make it easy and fast to launch by just tapping the back of your phone.

Part 1: Make a Shortcut

  1. Open the “Shortcuts” app on your phone.

  2. Tap the + in the top right to create a new shortcut

  3. Tap Add Action

  4. Tap Scripting

  5. Tap Open App

  6. Tap on the light blue “App” at the top Scroll down and choose the Disney World app

  7. At the top of the screen, tap the little down arrow and choose rename

  8. Type “Open MDE”

  9. Tap done

Part 2: Settings

  1. Go back to the Home Screen and choose settings

  2. Select accessibility

  4. Scroll down and choose “back tap”
