Mobile Howís the WiFi now in Disney Parks?

Do the parks now have better WiFi coverage in each one? Does it still drop out constantly?
Iím with O2 and even when I purchased data my speeds were very very slow loading pages?
Anyone bought a cheap US phone and some kind of cheap way of using it for roaming?

I think itís worse!
I donít remember it being so bad before.
Animal Kingdom is the worst.

Re roaming, Iím with o2 and mine has switched to TMobile. DS and OH are Vodafone and theyíve switched to AT&T which seems to be better than TMobile for DS but isnít working at all for OH despite numerous online chats with Vodafone 🤷
I tried selecting AT&T in my roaming options but although it registers, it doesnít work

We are with 3 and had no problems at all with the wifi in the parks. Sometimes had to log back in but it was always fast enough for us

Edited to add we didn't always notice it had logged us out as with 3 we automatically went onto data which we had no problems with either.

Oh good grief! How can it get worse? I suppose sheer volume of people!
Iíve actually discovered that I can upgrade my phone take out a new contract with more data and inclusive USA roaming for not much more than adding on a travel inclusive plan outside Europe so I might do that!
Canít believe we only get 3G though if the company throttles us back which O2 does!

I think 3 seems to get the best reviews. The trouble is that Iím not sure of the Three coverage where I live.

I had a 3 sim and also used the Wi-Fi and had no problems at all. I used my phone all over the parks and on the buses and it worked all the time.

We used 3 sims, but didn't find the wifi very good, especially in HS. I wanted to get another fastpass after we had used our 3 at midday and no matter what I did could I get it to load.

Tried to use it on 3G too and wasn't much better tbh.

Umm maybe should investigate three rather than upgrade O2!
Iím in a very sketchy area at home for coverage thatís the additional prob and I know O2 works here not sure about Three. Donít want to solve one prob and create a different one.

You donít need to move to three permanently. Just temporarily while in the states. We got a 1 month payg card.
