AT&T enhances coverage at all Disney destinations in the U.S.

General DVC News

A partnership between AT&T and The Walt Disney Company has lead to improved wireless network at Walt Disney World, Disneyland and the remote Disney Vacation Club properties.

Since assuming the mantle of "The Official Wireless Sponsor" for Disney's theme park operations, AT&T invested a great deal in expanding service at all Disney destinations.  The telcom provider has deployed more than 350 small cells, 25 DAS systems and 40 repeaters throughout Disneyland and Walt Disney World.  Additionally, "specialty network solutions" have been installed at all theme parks and Downtown Disney districts, as well as Disney's Aulani resort in Hawai'i, Disney's Vero Beach Resort and Disney's Hilton Head Island Resort.  

Small cells are designed to improve coverage in areas with geographic coverage barriers--administrative areas and tunnels beneath the Disney theme parks. DAS or Distributed Antenna Systems provide voice and data coverage over larger geographic areas.  

Walt Disney World's MyMagic+ initiatives rely heavily on in-park guests being able to access the Internet to manage dining reservations, FastPass+ return times and other information via its My Disney Experience website and mobile application.  

AT&T claims that work is stil ongoing with additional cell sites scheduled for deployment throughout Walt Disney World property.
