Disneyworld "Lines" & Touring Plans.com Review

So we are recently back from our Disneyworld vacation and wading through all the emails, news stories, photos and reviews that are on my to do list I wanted to start off with a review for the guys over at Touring Plans.com

Around 5-6 months ago I made a schedule of parks we wanted to visit, restaurants we wanted to eat at, and tried my best to determine if they would be busy or not. Lets just say if I would have went first to the Crowd Calendar on Touring Plans website things would have been a heck of alot easier. Luckily I was able to use their website weeks before we left and make the proper modifications to our Park and Dining reservations on my schedule. (yes I am a planning nerd)

So before leaving for Disneyworld I created an account at http://m.touringplans.com and bookmarked their page on my Droid phone (iPhone people are welcome too). I tested out the page, checked the wait times, and played around with their user interface before embarking on our vacation. (still a nerd)

Once we arrived at Disneyworld the first thing I did after checking in was bring up on my Droid Phone was their webpage and check to see what park would be the busiest, and which parks would be ok to visit that day.

So having checked Lines on my Droid we determined what park to attended that day. My family and I are big park hoppers, we like to take advantage of all the Disney transportation and sometimes visit all 4 parks in a day. (Boat ride between Epcot and HS is the best)

While all the parks were pretty busy, Lines was correct in determining which park was the busiest. A few times we had no choice and had to visit the “Park to Avoid” for breakfast or dinner, but once that was done we left and went back to one of the other parks.

I also found myself submitting wait times while hanging in line. Their submission page is simple to use and most times I just glanced at the sign before walking into a ride or as I walked past.

We didn’t start a day without visiting their webpage, and while in the park using the wait times to guide us through our day. I know Verizon and Disney have their own apps that basically do the same thing but for now why should you pay for an application that the guys over at Touring Plans is offering for free.

In conclusion their program & touring plans made our vacation 100% more enjoyable and I will be a life long supporter of their products. So if you have a smart phone and a DisneyWorld trip coming up what are you waiting for check them out today!

A dream is a wish your heart makes When you're fast asleep In dreams you will lose your heartaches Whatever you wish for, you keep   Have faith in your dreams and someday Your rainbows will come smiling through No matter how your heart is grieving If you keep on believing the dream that you wish will come true   A dream is a wish your heart makes When you're feeling small Alone in the night you whisper Thinking no one can hear you at all You wake with the morning …

It has been difficult to decide which aspect of our recent Walt Disney World vacation to write about, so I thought I would review the 1,700+ photographs I took during six days of our visit. What I came across were a selection of individual photos that were unexpected. They didn't necessarily go together, but by their uniqueness, they all represent something different and not what your would expect to see while walking around the "World".      I hope …

This place is simply amazing. I'm neither a huge Disney fan nor a big theme park fan, but my family's trip to Walt Disney World (WDW) was incredible. I go to theme parks expecting to pay a lot of money for everything, from admission tickets and souvenirs to snacks and meals. However, at WDW I felt like I got a lot for what I paid. It's wasn't cheap, but it's the first time I've been to a theme park where I felt I got my money's worth. We had a fantastic time and it made for a truly "magical" vacation. …

The Increasing Use of Technology while at the Disney Parks
In this day and age most people won’t even step out their front door without a cell/smart phone. Pictures, apps, games and wireless internet are becoming everyday necessities. I myself have a Droid phone and whenever I am not moving I am on my Droid checking out a website, uploading pictures or news articles, and even playing games. Jonathan one of the writers here & I came up with a fun way of blogging while we are at the Disney Parks or Disney function. Live Blogging You would think …
