They say that Disney World is the happiest place on earth, so it is probably also true that Disney iPad apps are the best apps in iTunes. Well, according to your child they probably are.
We’ve compiled a list of the best Disney iPad apps and you may be shocked – I was – to see that some of them are free. Get it while you can, because nothing in Disney World is free.
1. Where’s My Perry?
I have a confession to make – I have watched Phineas & Ferb without my daughter present. I love this show. If you have never seen it, you must. Just turn on the Disney channel, chances are that it’s probably on right now.
This app is $0.99 and is worth every one of those 99 pennies. There are 4 chapters with more than 80 puzzles. Very similar to Where’s My Water, this app uses water to solve the puzzles and help Perry move through the levels to get to headquarters. Each level has collectibles to help you advance to become a master spy and there are some top-secret collectibles that will unlock bonus levels.
2. Fairies Fly
At $4.99 for your iPhone and $7.99 for your iPad, Disney’s Fairies Fly is one pricey app. Luckily they do have a lite version that my 6 year old is content with. The graphics are quite amazing and you use your device by tilting it up and down to help guide Tinkerbell and her friends as they fly through the scenes. The fairies are getting ready for the change of season and they need your help in flying around collecting the items you need. Different items are worth different amounts. Don’t forget to pick up pixie dust on your way or you won’t be able to keep flying. Cute app, but I would be a little apprehensive to spend so much on it.
A free app from Disney based on the hit show, Jake & The Never Land Pirates. There are 4 different classes in Jake’s pirate school – Sailing Class, Pirate Band Class, Map & Spyglass Class, and Pixie Dust Class. Each class has different levels and is sure to keep your little one entertained for quite a while. And did I mention it’s free?? Collect enough gold doubloons to get your Official Never Land Pirate Certificate.
4. Minnie Bow Maker
Minnie Mouse is known for her pink & white polka dot bow, so now your little girl can help Minnie change her look and make different bows. Choose the material, color, pattern, and type of bow. After, watch Minnie and her friends show off the creations in the 3D bow fashion show. There are also three stories to watch and read along with. And your child can even use a photo of herself wearing a new bow. As Minnie says, “there’s no business like bow business”. Yours for $3.99.
5. Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Road Rally Appisode
Another free app, but don’t get too excited about this one. It’s just like an episode of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, but instead of your child yelling “Meeska Mouska Mickey Mouse!” at the television, they are yelling it at your iPad.
Even my little girl loves Kick Buttowski, so this is an app for everyone. It’s free, but the only problem is that it does contain ads and several opportunities to make in-app purchases. The other thing I was not a fan of is that the instructions need to be read and not a video showing the kids how to play. But there are 10 levels of Kick’s stunts and he needs help becoming the world’s greatest daredevil. Collect points, do tricks and unlock new vehicles.
7. Princess Dress Up: My Sticker Books
At $3.99, you may cringe a little, but it is fit for a princess. It’s part story book, part dress-up sticker book that allows your little girl to dress Cinderella, Ariel, Aurora, Show White, Jasmine, Bell and Tiana. Chose their outfits, shoes, and accessories, including tiaras. And you can use your device’s camera to take a photo of your child and make her a princess. Send your personalized photo via email so you can have it forever.
This interactive puzzle book features one of Disney’s favorite characters, Winnie the Pooh. Your child needs to help Pooh find some honey by finishing four interactive jigsaw puzzles and other games. You can have the story narrated to you or you can record your voice and read to your child. It’s great for younger children and is only $0.99.

Genna graduated from SUNY Stony Brook with an English degree and realized she can do one of two things – teach or write. She opted to write, which means she is poor. Luckily her husband is not.

She hates mushrooms and believes that if you put the scissors back in the same place every time, you’ll never lose them…
