Fans call for Disneyland Paris to withdraw the Lineberty App.

This week we held a poll asking our readers if they are happy with the use of the recently implemented Lineberty App for booking Character Meet ‘n’ Greets at the Walt Disney Studios Park in Disneyland Paris.

The responce from our readers was an outstanding call for Disneyland Paris to withdraw the on-line smart phone application.

366 people voted in our poll with 71% of our readers voting for the controversial application to be withdrawn with 29% happy for it to remain.

Many of our readers voiced their concerns about the implementation of the application which has replaced the traditional queuing system to meet their favourite Disney characters.

The main cause of complaints were that Meet ‘n’ Greet slots were filling within minutes of their release in the early morning disappointing many guests tying to book a slot.

A number of readers voiced their concerns that if the Lineberty App is introduced to Parc Disneyland they would no longer visit the resort and not renew their Annual Pass.

A major cause of concern from guests attending with those with disabilities was that they could be attending to medical issues when the slots were released meaning they would miss out on meeting Disney characters during their time in the park.

There were also a few guests in favour of the new system and they belived the introduction of Lineberty is a good idea and enables guests to meet characters without having to wait in queues.

Hopefully Disneyland Paris managment will listen to the guest feedback they are receiving about the use of the Lineberty application and take the necessary steps to improve the guest experience and make meeting characters in the Walt Disney Studios Park fairer for all guests.

Smartphone App to be used to reserve Character Meet’n’Greets at the Walt Disney Studios Park

In order to make the guest experience even more exceptional, guests will be able to reserve Meet’n’Greets with Disney Characters at several locations in Walt Disney Studios® Park via online reservations at Disneyland Paris.

To take advantage of this new tool, guests should download the Lineberty app (see the QR code on Park maps to download – available on Apple iOS and Android) to make their reservation.

While they wait for their reserved slot, guests can enjoy other experience and attractions around our Disney Parks. Their personalized wait time is available on the app, updated in real time.

Guests will get a notification from the app or an SMS when it’s their turn. To access the meeting point, guests will show their digital ticket (on the app or via SMS).

From June 7, 2018, our guests can enjoy this new system to meet The Incredibles at Art of Disney Animation and Disney Characters at Toon Plaza.

From June 10 through September 30, 2018, during MARVEL Summer of Super Heroes, guests can also use this innovative tool to meet Captain America at Production Courtyard.

Simultaneously, a test will be run at Restaurant En Coulisse from June 7 through August 31, 2018: two cash registers will be for reservations only (between 11:45 am and 3:00 pm).

These reservation-only cash registers will be indicated at the beginning of the queue. Guests will still be able to access other cash registers in the restaurant without reservations, and wait in line.

For guests with Green and Orange Disability passes the system will work the same as for regular guests, as the waiting time will be minimal as the Meet ‘n’ Greet will happen very quickly.

This exciting innovation for guests is in line with the Disneyland Paris innovative vision, and will soon be rolled out in Disneyland® Park, too.
