Paperroof's Review of Disney World Lines (tp)Reviewed on 9/8/18 5:55 PM
I love touring plans, they have really helped us through the years. This app, however, isn’t helpful when it comes to the menus. The menu offerings are wrong and the prices are off too. Idk how often Disney changes their menus and prices, but I would hope that the app would be updated more often. We were walking all over blizzard beach looking for the rice bowls that don’t exist and I almost didn’t bring enough cash to Tusker house because the price was $9 per person off! Wait times for the rides were also about 10-15 minutes longer than this app said. In fact, the Disney posted wait time was much more accurate. So what good ? Well everything else is awesome and the site, book and app are always a huge part of trips. Thank you for creating them.
JBird7291's Review of Disney World Lines (tp)Reviewed on 9/25/18 6:07 PM
This is a fantastic app that, when used correctly, will save you hours and hours of time in all of the WDW parks. We have used these plans since 2004, waaaay before this app came on the scene (printed in the book The Unauthorized Guide to Walt Disney World, updated yearly and to which this app is a companion) and they are spot on. But with this app, it increased the efficiency of the plans exponentially because unlike the printed plans, the plans in the app can be customized to your liking. Not only that, but they can be optimized at any time (when adding/removing attractions, for example) and the plan will update based on your location in the park and time of day to give you the best possible plan. You can also add Fastpasses to your plan and it will factor that in and tell you whether or not a Fastpass is needed based upon their tried and true wait-time data. Plans and info can be entered in the app or on the website touringplans.com and are synced. There is an annual fee of about $15 which is peanuts compared to the amount of waiting this app will save you. Plus, if you get the book (on Amazon for less than $20, which I also HIGHLY recommend because it gives so much detailed info about Disney that even people who've been to the parks before many times do not know), you'll save about $5 on the annual fee. Trust me, you are planning on dropping some serious ka-ching at Mickey's house, these costs are pennies well spent. Between the book and this app, my wife and I feel like WDW experts. We have seen everything we love many times over no matter the crowd levels because of the time we save. I could go on and on, but you'll just have to get it and find out yourself what makes it so great. You'll be a believer, I promise you, and you'll be trying to "convert" others whenever you hear of their upcoming Disney plans.

I used the app on our last Disney trip and it worked like a charm. I really like that you can set it to minimize walking, wait times, or balance the two. It was just a really convenient way to plan out each day in advance and it helped us get everything done that we wanted to without a bunch of backtracking and wasting time deciding what to do next. Planning another trip in a couple of months and will definitely be using the app again.

Time! Hassle!! Waiting!! You name it. Just spent 8 nights at WDW, 4 park days and 1 MNSSHP evening. Touring plans helped me get ready before we went and while in the parks helped with those inevitable changes that have to be made. Great advice and such a great app! Made even better because the WDWApp was glitchy and hard to sign in on the whole trip. And is still “ experiencing issues”. Subscription worth every penny!

Vlb35's Review of Disney World Lines (tp)Reviewed on 9/15/18 2:12 PM
This app was ok. Using it in the Parks I found it loaded easier than my Disney app, which was extremely glitchy. I didn’t think their times were any better than my Disney app, and sometimes were off-base. My biggest problem was using their park plans. A lot of them are centered around you having a fastpass for key rides at set times. Without those fastpasses, I found the plans unhelpful— especially since those key rides were the ones I wanted help with getting on.

My family of five just got back from out most magical Disney World trip ever and it all started with Lines 5 days before we left. They have a helpful tool that lets you submit a room request with them then they will fax it to your resort 5 days out from the start of your trip. In my request I had two things 1.) We were celebrating our youngest sons birthday and 2.) That it would be a fun surprise since we were staying at the Boardwalk to be upgraded from a standard room to a water view room. The rest was left up to TL to fax at the appropriate time for me and well, we got you upgrade!!!! I’ve been to Disney 8 times and never received anything like that!! Thanks so much guys!

very helpful app for our Disney trip. I wish there were a way to delete a “trip” we create in the app, and the ability to deselect a hotel that I added to a trip accidentally would be nice. Also, I have to enter my password every time I use the app. This gets old. Could you set it so that a password is only required every once in awhile (weekly maybe)? Even better, let the user use Touch ID/ Face ID to log in.

CircusRide's Review of Disney World Lines (tp)Reviewed on 8/28/19 1:54 PM
This is the fourth time we have made a trip using the Unofficial Guide. Our vacation was so relaxing and fun while using the Lines app in the park as we followed our custom plan. This trip we visited all four Disney parks in Orlando during the last week of March. The crowd levels were at a level 7, 8, and 9 during our days in the parks yet we never waited more than 35 “park minutes” for anything. The majority of the attractions we waited less than 15 minutes!!!! We did get to Animal Kingdom before the park opened so we had to wait for rope drop but made it through Flight of Passage by 9:35 (with 9:00 park opening). I can’t praise this system of touring Disney enough! A bit of planning at home will make so much difference in your touring days at the park. My family was so amazed that we made it through all the attractions we wanted to see with breaks during the day and no long lines! The Unofficial Guide is our best friend for our Orlando vacations - you really get to enjoy your time seeing the attractions vs. standing in line all day. We give it a 5-Star rating!!!

amceomaha's Review of Disney World Lines (tp)Reviewed on 8/28/19 1:54 PM
Honesty, the price of an annual subscription is misleading. Looking at Disney prices, you are thinking how can something so cheap be worth it for planning an expensive vacation. Frankly, it is worth 10 times the money at least. We went in Oct of 2017. I planned for my family and for my in-laws to meet us at the parks for a few days. The planned worked perfectly! (So much do doing again in Oct 2019.) This is essential and it works!
Taz1997's Review of Disney World Lines (tp)Reviewed on 8/28/19 1:54 PM
This has completely helped lessen wait times and make our time more efficient! That said, during this spring break trip the estimated standby wait times were very low compared to the posted wait times as well as our actual wait times in most instances. We have never had that be a problem in the past. We still used the app and found the best places to be, and the order to see the attractions, but wait times were higher.

Disney is a beast and you have to have a plan or otherwise you will be miserable. I bought the two year membership, made my plans ahead of time to coordinate with dining reservations and fast passes. Once I was in the park, it was so easy to rearrange steps and optimize it to get the best wait times. The longest we waited in line was an hour and that was for Space Mountain which we had not fast pass for and broke down while we were in line, otherwise everything was 30 min or less. Do yourself a favor and buy the membership and get the app. It will make your trip so much better.
Knuckle Duece's Review of Disney World Lines (tp)Reviewed on 8/28/19 1:54 PM
Rule number one for visiting any Disney Park is plan, plan, plan. This is a great tool to plan for a fun, time saving visit thus avoiding frustrations and heartaches sure to beset those that do not plan. The daily plans are awesome and provide plenty of flexibility to ensure your visit is what you want. I found the wait times to be far more accurate than the WDW app and provide a much better plan for our visits. Have used this app at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World and found it to be well worth the cost...a must for first time visits. Be sure and download it prior to going so you can build daily plans, learn a few tricks on the chat board, and get some familiarity with its capabilities. Overall, a great app!

I’m hooked and am telling all my Disney friends they NEED this app.

The app did not work like it supposed to. It would not use any of my fast passes. It kept removing them even after I checked the box telling it to used them. It kept changing the plan and telling me it is saving me time with wait time for pandora for 75 minutes instead of using my fast pass for it. I brought it 3 months before my Disney trip once I started using it and found out it does not work for me so I could not receive a refund. I would not recommend it

vautrinjr's Review of Disney World Lines (tp)Reviewed on 8/28/19 1:54 PM
If you follow a plan that was creates before entering the park, the lines app and system work great. There is a high level of accuracy for timing and routing to get the most done with the time available. But if you need to make changes during the day, the app is unresponsive and does not keep up. Some of the major flaws include the inability to anchor a desired attraction to a time of day or position in the ordering of the route. Also, if changes need to be made due to FP+ changes, down rides or meal times, the app simply cannot keep up. Definitely worthwhile as a planning tool but not something that can be relied on if there is any deviance required.

Just finish our 7 day wedding anniversary at Disney. Im a former Disney cast member and I thought it was going to be easy to donit by myself. Then I heard about Touring Plans and decided to try it. Bought The unofficial guide book and it was super helpful. And this app is a great add on! Very accurate. We followed their plans and we had a great time. Almost waiting in line even when we did some little changes of our own. We woke early everyday, and we were done by 4pm. WAKE UP EARLY and arrive an hour before Animal Kingdom opens if you want to ride Flight of Passage at Pandora with inly a 20 minutes wait! These folks have a great network to keep waiting times accurate. It is a community of people sharing their experience. Again, numbers, math and nerds to save the day!

If you like to sleep late and walk around in the heat of the day and stand in really long lines, this app will probably still make you a little more comfortable on a Disney trip, but I don’t think we have much in common. On the other hand, if you like to be at the park at Rope Drop and maximize your touring when other tourists are “sleeping” because they are on “vacation”. If you like to spend more times actually on the most popular attractions instead of waiting in line for them and if you don’t mind a little backtracking or a few extra steps, this app is a lifesaver. I also love the menus and the reviews of the hotels, although admittedly I get those in advance of my trips from the printed Unofficial Guides. I make a game out of “optimizing” my Touring Plan when I leave an attraction to see if I can shave two or three minutes off of my schedule. For me, this is fun! For the rest of you, I still think you would be better armed with the knowledge of how long it takes to walk to a restaurant or an attraction as information is power and at Disney, time is money. I have read the Unofficial Guides for 24 years and I know I drink the Kool-aid when I say, just once, try the Dumbo-or-Die-in-a-Day plan. It will change your life. Five stars.

abajorek's Review of Disney World Lines (tp)Reviewed on 7/5/18 12:48 PM
If you consider the relationship between amount of minutes in a Disney park and the price of admission, you would easily see that time is not only of the essence for most visitors, but that it is also a pre-paid premium commodity. With that in mind, this app is an essential for the best use of your hard-earned minutes in the park. I live locally (within eyesight of the MK fireworks), and my time in the parks could be more whimsical than most - but yet I still feel it imperative to have Testa and Co.’s planning tools, crowd data, and updated schedules on my person in anticipation of a visit to the parks as well as during our many visits each year. The subscription fee, when considered with the benefits of included time saving tools and information, is easily repaid in the time capital you gain from using the app and the website. Even more impressively, all of these features are responsibly presented in the form of a simple GUI that is easy enough to use (once you get the hang of it) and better for bandwidth on the Disney guest wireless network. While the app is certainly more utilitarian than aesthetic, any user will quickly appreciate its responsiveness when making those important last-minute decisions (like...Splash Mountain, then train or vice versa?) Many kudos to the team of touringplans for providing an invaluable service on an excellent platform.

I am a huge fan of your books but this was my first time using your app. Some feedback. It would be great to have an option to move an item to the bottom of a plan if an attraction is out of service for an hour or so. I didn’t want to remove it from the plan but the app kept putting it at the top. Also if I want to add an attraction on the fly, it puts it at the bottom. Would be great to have an option to move to top in one touch. Finally, for the few rides with single rider options, it would be great to show that on the plan- maybe giving an option to transmit to you which we used. Thank you for all your research!! -Julie

Eugol's Review of Disney World Lines (tp)Reviewed on 6/28/18 12:20 AM
The app hasn’t had a UI refresh since pre-iOS7 days and looks terribly dated. I found that I wasn’t able to use the app while in the parks because the “Evaluate” option would always Re-order the plan, changing FastPass+ attraction to different times, and generally making a mess of things. After spending time in the weeks prior to our trip creating personalized plans, it was quite disappointing to not be able to use the app once we got to Disney. I subscribed to Touring Plans for our last few Disney Trips, but I won’t in the future, it just doesn’t work well enough to be worth it.
postmanic's Review of Disney World Lines (tp)Reviewed on 6/26/18 7:33 PM
I have used Touring Plans for years. I live in Southern California and thought I was a skillful Disneyland veteran. Notwithstanding, the custom touring plans (a reasonably priced in-app purchase) did indeed “save time” - lots - which actually meant more rides (including some charming ones I usually skipped!), longer meals (the kind eaten while sitting down!), and generally more pleasant strolls and stops around the park. What a gift! It encouraged me to go with confidence to the Florida property armed with this app. In a word: Wow! The added planning tools saved me more than once - starting with not being a day late ordering fast passes. Thanks guys for my most uniquely useful app.

The app itself is not a total loss. The UI is somewhat intuitive. The plans though, are horrid. If you try to follow one, you’ll find that your wait times are not even close to what the app says.

This was well worth the $15 we paid on the Touring Plans site. Though our plans changed several time through our trip (depending on fatigue level), this allowed us to make the best use of our time to see the things that were the most important to us. Highly recommended!

So meany awesome features! Another good one to add would be a way to save favorite restaurants/food carts to the map for each park. I might not know when I want to grab a quick snack, but it would be nice if my favorite places could be starred on the map so I could see which one was closest to my location in the park.

We were longtime devoted Lines users and subscribers to Touring Plans. We have found that both the Lines app and the crowd calendar have become pretty much useless and inaccurate. Wait times are rarely correct and the crowd calendars ability to predict crowds at the parks or resorts have become meaningless. Will no longer be renewing my subscription.

I have used this app for our last two Disney World and last two Universal trips, and I’m currently using it to plan our WDW vacation for this year. This truly is a time saver. I tell all of my friends who are planning a Disney trip to definitely use this app. The amount of time saved using this FAR outweighs the cost of the app. Very easy to use. I love that I can log in from my tablet or computer to have a different view and make changes, and everything transfers over to the app immediately. Sooooo easy to make changes and get real time updates once inside the parks. If you use this service once, you will never ever go back to WDW or Universal without it ever again.

NicknameChoiceNeedsReform's Review of Disney World Lines (tp)Reviewed on 4/7/18 11:27 PM
We went to Magic Kingdom on consecutive days that were both predicted to be 10 out of 10 crowd level days. Made touring plans that started at park opening at 8am, through about lunch time. Wait times were consistently much higher in reality than were predicted. We got through maybe a quarter of what we had planned. The Disney posted wait times were if anything more accurate than the touring plans real time data. The suggestions were really poor as well. Following the optimized plan, we wasted precious time early in the morning on attractions that never reached stratospheric wait times. For example, the optimized plan has us visit tinker bell in the town square first thing, but the wait for that later in the morning wasn’t as great as the wait for the attractions we were supposed to visit late morning. The second day I completely ditched the touring plan and we got a lot more done in the first 2 hours before the parks got really busy.

Chantellenug's Review of Disney World Lines (tp)Reviewed on 4/22/18 5:19 PM
Other than the fact that I am wildly jealous of what you guys do, I have few complaints. The plan I created significantly helped us navigate the park and minimize wait times. The one thing I noticed on wait times was that the time I posted was based on my start and finish, unless someone was tracking time begins me, it did not take into account the change in the line. The Disney Experience app wait times were slightly more accurate. By the way, where do I get an application to join the touring plans team? 😄
TeamDavisMA's Review of Disney World Lines (tp)Reviewed on 4/22/18 12:27 AM
I am blown away by how brilliant this app is. It completely changed our experience and I believe it saved us *hours* of time in line. The few times that I decided to call an audible and do something that the app told me to do later I quickly realized that I’d made a bad call. That said, it is very flexible and you can use it for a completely regimented day or use it to change things on the fly and recalculate. My only advice would be to spend some time playing with it ahead of your trip, using a plan to add and subtract rides, dining, breaks, start and finish times, etc. Needless to say it’s worth every penny and then some. We used it for Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Universal Studios, and US Islands of Adventure. I did also use the official apps for each park to augment, particularly for mapping and ride descriptions.
Reviewertn's Review of Disney World Lines (tp)Reviewed on 4/20/18 11:21 PM
The app was rarely accurate. We chose lines based on the app's projected wait time rather than the park's, and almost always the wait time was longer than the app's projection. As an example, big thunder posted a 45 minute wait. The app said more like 34 minutes. We waited almost an hour in line. The app updated twice while we were in line, the first time after we had been in line 20 minutes and the second time after we had been in line 40 minutes. Doesn't really do ya much good...

Clutter free wannabe's Review of Disney World Lines (tp)Reviewed on 4/11/18 12:54 PM
Knowing from prior experience how overwhelming planning a Disney trip is, I originally wanted to work with a Disney travel agent for our first trip with our 1yo and his 3yo friend, but alas we were too late in calling the agents (3 months). So I have spent days going through online sites and various apps. I bought the premium plan for this app. Overall I think the app is okay. The plans are doable. My biggest issue is that the user interface is not very friendly. Also it would be nice to have a one stop shop including food options, tour options, and special events like the flower and garden festival. I haven’t found my one stop shop app or website, I ended up manually making our plan using Apple numbers. I used a number of books including Birnbaum’s guide and the 2018 Walt Disney World Dining guide. I have tables for all of our travel reservations and a table for each day at the park. I might enter them into touring plan app just to create a map.

I used the app at WDW, Hollywood Studios, Universal Orlando and IA. I got better at using it and learned the ins and outs. I recommend having the WDW and Universal apps too. The app lines were not always perfect, especially when first entering WDW, but they were usually a good judge of time. I could not figure out how to refresh time without reshuffling the order, also my place in the park kept reverting back to 7 dwarfs. Overall it saved us time and kept us on plan. It’s clever and has good ways to put in dinner reservations, FastPass+. Still a few kinks, but overall I like it.

Make some touring plans. Have a much more magical vacation. Currently they are struggling with accurate crowd level predictions but that it because crowds are changing - blogs/social media advice and seasonal pricing are moving people away from summers and former peak times to fall and winter.
Jharward888's Review of Disney World Lines (tp)Reviewed on 3/12/18 6:06 AM
I had no idea the gem I stumbled on when I first signed up to have Touring Plans show me each room at my resort and then fax my room request. Touring plans also does schedule optimizing and attraction filtering. I punch in my kids ages and heights and it shows me what to go see and in what order and what my expected wait time is AND which rides to use my Fastpasses on. Which parks are the best based on crowds for which day. For a Disneyworld v***** it’s been like having a travel agent on my computer. They also have info on literally everything- honest direct info, not the vague pat answers the Disney sites give. So the app itself is good, but limited in its capabilities. Not surprising considering the back end data they are constantly pinging their server with. The very first thing you should do in your Disney planning, is sign up with Touring Plans.

trumpspock's Review of Disney World Lines (tp)Reviewed on 2/2/18 7:54 PM
Overall this app and associated website were helpful in planning our trip. In the future I think I would use this app for the itinerary part of the planning, but take the crowd levels and expected wait times with a grain of salt. Unfortunately I think the projected park crowd level was way off for our trip (listing some as a 2 or 3 to see it actually end up being a 6). This in turn ended up making the projected wait times way off (character spot in Epcot projected at a 5 min wait ended up having a posted wait time of 50min and crowd inside to correspond). Even with the crowd/wait time issues the itinerary part was very useful to keep track of what we wanted to do next. My advice would be to not feel like you have to do your itinerary exactly as planned, and to adjust based on wait times (cross check in the actual Disney app) I would also like to see more of the character meet and greets included as options to pick as steps so they show in the itinerary (ie the ones without fastpass lines/wait times). I also did experience some glitchiness when trying to record wait times.

The lines app coupled with touring plans is an excellent source for touring Walt Disney World. It is a time maximizer for touring hands down and let's you enjoy the parks with a little less stress. The lines app is sort of clunky feeling and has virtually been the same for awhile. It really needs an update i mean come on 2 years and Naadda. Seems to work ok but we need to see a little more modern feel and interface and it needs more friendly integration with the web page. Also there are numerous meet and greets that would be nice to have added for us that like to see the charecters. Several are available but by no means are all listed. A tab on personal plan page with all charecters would mark this app better

One day at each park, 6 in group including kids 7, 10, and 13 and grandmother. This app worked to perfection. We did everything we wanted to and more. App provides great info to help you select attractions appropriate to your group, then plan day, accounting for fast passes and dining reservations, allowing you at adjust as you go if needed.

Thanks for helping me nerd out on plans and data while still allowing us to enjoy our vacation! I wonder if I can I link my Fitbit to the app too ;-) (How many steps can I get using this plan...LOL)

The waiting times and predictions were inaccurate. It said 44 mins for Flight of passage at 9 a.m. When it was 90 minutes. The app said to expect shorter lines but that never happened for Navi river journey. Didn’t find it very useful.

Crowd levels for parks are always more than they predict. Touring plans are terrible. When you optimize they will have you riding rides after the park has closed, etc. I won’t ever plan another trip around this useless information. I could probably guess and be as accurate as they are...
mmartin0517's Review of Disney World Lines (tp)Reviewed on 10/9/18 5:54 PM
Used the app to follow our touring plan for Hollywood Studios. I know the book/app says a plan is more important than crowd level. I didn’t believe it until 10/8/18. Predicted crowd level was 7 but it was a 10. We had our plan and followed it. We were able to get in all the big attractions we wanted (Slinky, Toy Story Mania, Rock n Roller coaster, characters, etc) without waiting more than 25-35 minutes. I call that a success given how crowded it was.
Brittandkell's Review of Disney World Lines (tp)Reviewed on 10/6/18 3:56 AM
I have used touring plans before and loved the app. I renewed because I’m planning our December wdw trip. I was billed 29.00 instead of 14.99. I also can’t log in to use the app. I’ve sent 2 emails over the past week and no one has bothered to contact me back. So basically I paid double to receive nothing and they won’t respond to my emails. I’m very disappointed for sure!

Used touring plans to request a room at BLT. I had reservations for lake view and requested using touring plans room request that they fax for you. I requested 8404 and it we got 8406!! It has an identical view!! So very happy! The reservation finder works Lomé a charm as well. Several reservations i requested have been found. Love this app!

The app is very useful. However it seems to have issues most of the time and I constantly get the cannot connect error. I am editing to one star, as I just returned from an 8 day trip and the app did not work one day of this trip. Not able to access wait times or touring plans I created. I am frustrated with this app especially as a paying subscriber for access to all the site features that are basically useless if the app does not work.

I’m a TouringPlans fan, although I think their accuracy has become a little less reliable lately as crowd levels become more unpredictable. On feature I’d like to see is the ability to plan split stays. Currently you have to create an entirely new trip even though you’re on the same vacation.

Get a subscription. Study up on crowds, resorts, attractions, and food. Get advice from park regulars on the chat feature. Make some touring plans. Have a much more magical vacation.
Alaska Ron's Review of Disney World Lines (tp)Reviewed on 10/18/18 4:33 PM
In theory, this works well. Most of the time. It also does random crazy things like tell you you can use a fast pass an hour before or 20 minutes after the time of your FP. Spoiler alert: you can’t! Don’t ask me how I know. :( It also made us miss the character greeting with the very character my little girl had been dressed up as and waiting to see, because the app apparently doesn’t tap into real-time schedule data from the WDW website, which we sadly found out had said our desired character greeting was scheduled to close five minutes before this app told us to go. So sad and frustrating. Lesson learnt: check the official WDW website for schedule information; DO NOT RELY ON THIS APP FOR ATTRACTION SCHEDULES! With those caveats, I will continue to use this app but never blindly rely on it as my sole insight into my planning.
Mustang-Pa's Review of Disney World Lines (tp)Reviewed on 10/18/17 3:29 AM
Love this app! We use the official free My Disney Experience app but supplement it with this app for our custom itineraries and crow and line planning. Price is a pittance when compared to the cost of a WDW trip! We take the grandkids every other year to WDW always buy the unofficial guide and the app subscription!
Xfiddle's Review of Disney World Lines (tp)Reviewed on 10/18/17 2:26 AM
Great app full of useful tools. In a lot of ways it's better than the official MDE Disney app for wait times. Utilitarian look but easy to navigate.

Mrs Buch's Review of Disney World Lines (tp)Reviewed on 10/16/18 8:40 PM
Using this app in the parks significantly reduced our wait times! We were able to walk on to Space Mountain, Test Track, Kilimanjaro Safaris and so many more e-ticket attractions! The menu finder also helped us find new food offerings! Will be using the Disneyland version as well!
V apple user's Review of Disney World Lines (tp)Reviewed on 10/16/18 4:39 PM
Love the touring plan concept so that you can prioritize in real time what you want to do. We have little kids, so at some point we threw up our hands and took it easy by the midafternoon. Then when we were ready to do attractions, we just reconfigured our touring plan and went right back into it. We were never standing in front of a map trying to figure out what to do. Just a couple of clicks and you are set. Love the app!
MacungieMommy's Review of Disney World Lines (tp)Reviewed on 10/16/18 1:43 AM
Weather was extremely unpredictable on our trip. This app made it easy to rearrange our plans without having to sacrifice any of the WDW rides/experiences. Couldn’t have done it all without TP!
xaithan's Review of Disney World Lines (tp)Reviewed on 10/14/17 9:28 PM
This app is just so great! I am in the planning stage of our family of 4's first trip. I knew what rides we wanted to go on but I wasn't sure of the walking distance between those points. This app calculates those walking times for you! It even allows you to pick your walking rate from casual to speed walker. At the bottom of the page it has your map with your ride choices on it. This is very helpful to make sure you're not walking clear across the park multiple times. I can't wait until our trip and with this app I know it will run much smoother than if we didn't have it!!

JnyO's Review of Disney World Lines (tp)Reviewed on 10/12/18 5:43 PM
I found the app good to make a plan, but crowds and waits were often longer than they predicted. First day at Epcot we were supposed to be able to do frozen and then have a 30 minute wait for test track. What a joke, waits were 70-85 minutes for test track and touring plans completely removed it from our plan because it was impossible. Today I was at MK with a supposed crowd level of 2- no way! Went to splash mountain in order of plan for a supposed 20 minute wait- it was 45 min posted, and we waited an hour. Wrecked the rest of the plan...
Money Badger's Review of Disney World Lines (tp)Reviewed on 1/30/18 10:00 PM
Garbage in -> garbage out. The wait times in the app are useless. Touring Plans claim that the posted wait times are wrong and to trust TP’s crowd-sourced data. Either the crowd can’t tell time, or TP is ignoring reports. Wait times are grossly underestimated. What a waste of a subscription. Oh and just try creating a custom plan for Animal Kingdom. It’s as productive as picking your nose with your elbows. Use Ridax instead.

Numbers 9876's Review of Disney World Lines (tp)Reviewed on 1/28/18 11:14 PM
This app and its companion site have helped me to plan our Disney World trips each time. There are many time saving features and a whole lot of organizational tools to help you navigate the Disney system. Going to Disney can feel overwhelming but this app really help to cut down on that feeling. It will help you pick which park to go to, plan your trip, help with dining reservation tips, and even help you decide which ride to go in next while you’re at the park. I wouldn’t go to Disney without it!
frustrated in MK's Review of Disney World Lines (tp)Reviewed on 1/23/18 2:19 PM
I really wanted to like it. But this app severely underestimated line wait times (by half in many cases). I’m, as I write this, in a line that the app said would be 35 mins and I’ve been in it an hour with no end in sight. It is still early today but had the same experience a few days ago in MK. I followed the plan exactly. My suggestion to the creators is that it would be better overestimate than to underestimate line times. I would not have gotten in this line if i thought the wait would be 1.5 hours. But now I’ve been in it an hour I am stuck. I’d say getting the app is fine but build in “breaks” after every ride when creating you plan. 5-10 min breaks for unpopular rides and 20-30 min breaks for popular rides. If you move faster just delete the breaks and add in a meet and greet or shopping or quick ride.

TheConnMan's Review of Disney World Lines (tp)Reviewed on 1/20/18 5:12 AM
I pay for this service! Therefore I think that updates should constantly be pushed to the app. The updated UI is awesome and long overdue. I would love this app to be more of a hub for info while in the parks...is Fantasmic cancelled tonight? There should be somewhere to share that. The chat feature is cool and has a huge following, but it's people asking where they should eat for their trip in a year. I want to have a place to share "live" information about the parks for other people in the parks. I love this app though. It's easier to use than the Disney app for show schedules and is always accurate. Thank for all your work TP! Update: I wrote this several years ago and still true. Touring Plans, you NEED to give the endless people using it as a forum a place to talk about their UPCOMING trips so that the Chat can be about info happening in the Parks that day. Also, did the prices recently skyrocket??
spont9's Review of Disney World Lines (tp)Reviewed on 1/2/18 2:48 PM
This app/website is the absolute best tool you can use when planning and visiting Disney parks. I have used it both in Disney World and Universal Studios. Having a plan in place is a must when visiting these parks. This app/website is worth every penny for the amount of time and stress saved while on vacation. Not only does it help you build an in park touring plan, it will remind you when to book Dining, Fastpasses, etc. Plus you have access to a forum where you can ask other Disney travelers any questions you may have about your vacation. The folks at Touring Plans have collected at least a decade worth of data to bring users the most up to date information and touring plans possible. I use this to plan before my trip, then use while in the parks, updating it as I go for the optimal touring plan. I can’t recommend enough.
Sandyjoys's Review of Disney World Lines (tp)Reviewed on 1/17/18 12:51 PM
I used this to make my own plan and optimize along the way. I wish there was a way to check current wait times without having to switch screens each time, causing the app to reload. My battery drained quickly throughout the day.
Blizzette's Review of Disney World Lines (tp)Reviewed on 1/14/18 12:32 PM
I thought this app was great! I was on my own most of the time at Disney as my daughter was traveling with her team for a large competition at ESPN. This app may not be appreciated by a locals who can be choosy about when they go to the parks, but for me, it was helpful. The crowd levels were only mildly important for me because I was locked in to my dates. They only helped me decide which park to go to on any given day of my trip. Also, I was not trying to go on every single ride. I have a select few that I enjoy, so that helped also. This app helped to manage my time as I also needed to be at ESPN when my daughter was competing, helped me find what was available so I could get the most out of my visit, & kept me organized.

I purchased the subscription plan with the company son I could make personalized plans and see them in the app. So far it seems really useful. I will try and update this after we use it in 2 weeks for our trip. Only thing that would be an awesome addition is a watch app that would vibrate to let you know to walk faster or when you are within your fast pass window.
