Today an all new app has released from Disney and it’s not quite I was expecting, but that might be a good thing. Much like the popular chatting app LINE, Disney Mix is a free to message app that allows you to chat, send emojis and play games with friends. You can also create an avatar and wear costumes and it’s all wrapped up in a cute little package.
FROM THE DEVS:
Chat, share, and play like never before.
Disney Mix is a social messaging app where friends can chat, share, and play in a whole new way! Get creative and express yourself using some favorite Disney and Pixar characters like Flash from Zootopia, Hank from Finding Dory, Jenny from Adventures in Babysitting, Danny from Future-Worm!, and more! Add Disney Channel, Disney XD, and Disney Movies to your Friends List and receive the latest videos and photos directly from them. Personalize an avatar, chat with friends, play games, make memes, and send funny stickers and sounds… do it all in one place with Disney Mix.
CHAT FREE WITH FRIENDS Text with friends and family in a whole new way with stickers, memes, sounds, and games.
BE THE FIRST TO KNOW Get the latest and greatest news delivered straight to your Chat List from Disney Channel, Disney XD, Disney Movies, Radio Disney, and more!
PLAY GAMES Challenge friends to interactive games like Spikes, Elsa’s Winter Waltz, and Cards of Doom right inside your chat screen.

Express yourself with stickers and memes from some of your favorite shows like Adventures in Babysitting, K.C. Undercover, Descendants, and more, plus your favorite Disney movies like Zootopia, Frozen, Pixar’s Finding Dory, Monsters University, Toy Story, and more!
CREATE A UNIQUE AVATAR From fresh sunglasses to crazy hair and everything in between, choose from hundreds of options to customize an avatar. There are even costumes like Judy Hopps, Baymax, Dory, and more!
TEXT WITH SAFETY IN MIND Disney Mix has a number of safety controls in place to help protect your information.
My Initial Thoughts:
The real long term implications of the app seem to be deeper seeded in Disney. The app promises to give you news and updates about all things Disney and also allows you to link your Disney account. This means that it could also eventually integrate things like Photopass or even your future Disney trips into the game. It’s also a great way to chat with people through a messenger that allows you to protect your identity, unlike things like Facebook Messenger.
So far, I’ve only run into one big problem with the app. I DON’T HAVE ANY FRIENDS USING IT! So that’s where you come in. My username is KOOKAMUNGAKAT. Shoot me a friend request. We can make fireworks shows, play games and send crazy emojis. The full power of the app revolves around making some friends so let’s be friends! Try the game out and add me!
Are you guys using Disney Mix? Let me know in the comments. What do you think of it so far? What do you hope they add? I’ll post some more first impressions as I get deeper into the app, but for now, it’s all about the sloth costume from Zootopia. And it’s glorious.
