    We're going to buy a pair of US cell phones to use in the parks. I was just wondering if any particular providers are better than others to use at WDW.

    Ive been through *ALL* of them and every time I try a new one, Tink says "Verizon" and I try another one and she reminds me "Verizon"

    So, in my experience, Verizon is indeed the best in Orlando. It seems to work well and fast all over. I found it the hardest in terms of getting a decent phone but if youre gonna buy a pair of cell phones anyway no problem.

    at&t a notch down but still good

    tmobile I found a lot of areas of poor coverage

    It will literally for us just to text each other when we've split up for a bit (so Anthony can take Ben on the bigger rides ;))

    Disney does have free wifi now and tbh I've found it getting better each time I've been but yeah still nice to have proper cell coverage

    We'll maybe use the WiFi on our iPad in the room, but I don't think we'll be using it in the parks. Am intending on getting the cheapest phone possible, so they probably won't even have internet access :D

    You should try AT&T, I always buy a Red Pocket sim card and they use AT&T. I've never had any problems with texts, calls or wifi.

    If you have phones you can take with you and they are unlocked or you can pick up a couple of unlocked phones from ebay, I can send you a couple of sim cards, all you need to do is activate them on line and it will cost $19.99 plus tax and that's for 250 mins and 500 texts.

    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    Thanks Wendy, but we go on Tuesday so that might be cutting it a bit fine :)

    What do you mean they're partnering with AT&T?

    Also, I don't really want to use my own phone, I like it too much and wouldn't want to break it :D
