Starting next year, Disney and Gowalla will team up to provide location-based check-ins to every Disney park and resort in the U.S. The service will let Gowalla's 600,000+ subscribers check into Disney rides and attractions, earning them the soon-to-be-coveted Disney badges and pins.
The move is a good one for both Disney and Gowalla. Gowalla's subscriber base is increasing, and Disney has started to ride the location-based wave at just the right time. The Disney check-in service will be available via a Gowalla app and should be online in early 2011.
