Walt Disney World’s annual culinary event will be even more navigable thanks to your smartphone and Facebook.
Guests attending the Food & Wine Festival at EPCOT will be able to plan their visit during the event with the latest helpful information automatically given to them based on their location.
Place Tips is a new feature within Facebook that acts pretty much like a Yelp for Facebook. When people check-in or are near a location, information about that place are shown at the top of users’ News Feeds for easy access.
A special version of Place Tips has been created that will give Food & Wine attendees the opportunity to view menus, chefs recipes, food and wine location maps, and more that can be unlocked while at the Festival.
Facebook’s partnership with Disney marks the first time the two companies have worked together, though Facebook hopes that the partnership will continue with more Place Tips that can be created for other Disney Parks and their respective events.
