Disney has updated the 'Shop Disney Parks' app to include new functionality for guests on-site at Walt Disney World.
In addition to the option to ship items to a home address, the app now includes the ability to have an order delivered to a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, or to be shipped to the front of the park for later pick-up.
Delivery to a resort hotel requires a reservation linked to My Disney Experience, and ship to front of the park requires you to be actually inside the park.
The app is available for download now from the app store.
