Disney Shout! is the newest Disney family app now available on iTunes.

 

Disney has released a new family fun app named Disney Shout! This fun app will have family and friends laughing and guessing wherever they are – whether its on a road trip, at a party or even in a long line!

We played Disney Shout! with our two sons, ages 9 and 13, and, although it is made for ages 6-8, they had lots of fun with it. Players can gather around, hold up their phones and guess Disney characters, famous scenes, and match secret Disney pictures.

 

 

 

Fun graphics, like this spinner, make this game even more fun!

The app includes three guessing games:

  • Shout! – Listen to clues and guess the word on the card!
  • Favorites! – Guess each other’s favorite answers to comical Disney questions!
  • Spot! – Choose a spot in a picture from a beloved Disney classic. See if friends and family can guess what you chose!

 

 

Fun picture opportunities at the end of a game.

We were surprised when, after a game, you are able to take a picture of someone with some super cute Disney pictures. My kids loved this!

 

This app is available on iTunes for $0.99 and a comes with the starter pack with Mickey and Friends. Additional packs, such as Big Hero 6, Cinderella, and more are available for in-app purchase.
