The Audio tour was a joke....it had us going in the direction to leave the park and not to enjoy it the park using the open auto roads....luckily we were able to maneuver it on our own!

The commentary and app were great but it took a bit of getting use too. I wish they advised to download everything the night before and practice using it. We lost 35 mins+ driving trying to download huge files in the car and then figure out the driving directions as well. Once you get use to it it’s easier but planning ahead would have saved a lot of stress when we were trying for an early 6 am departure.
