Pokemon Go, the augmented reality game that has become a worldwide phenomenon since its launch 2 weeks ago, has made its way to Disney World!
The game involves using your smartphone to spot and catch Pokemon that appear on the screen. The Pokemon characters are more plentiful in crowded areas like the theme parks.
The Magic Kingdom is a great place to find the rare characters! We’re hearing that rare characters show up near the Cinderella Castle in the mid-afternoon – around the time of the 3pm Festival of Fantasy parade!
Disney Springs is also a good place to hunt Pokemon, as the Disney shopping district does not require an admission fee and it’s very crowded there all the time!
There are 30+ Pokestops and gyms throughout the Disney Springs area.
Finally, DO NOT go into restricted areas chasing Pokemon! Rules are still rules, and even if you see the grass moving in a backstage area, you’re not allowed to go there! Respect the Cast Members and Disney Security.

Ever wonder what it’s like to work for Disney???
We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program (Fall 2013/Spring 2014) and have written a book about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.
We’ve included advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship, and how not self-term before your program ends. Our book is filled with lots of behind-the-scene stories of the magic of Disney. Available now at Amazon.com in paperback and Kindle formats. Published by Theme Park Press.
