the unofficial guide was a great book, the app did not work for us at all, created very bizarre plans didn’t use after first hour of the day
The Lines app is a great help when planning a Disney trip. Being able to see predicted wait times and using it to figure out how to navigate the parks is so helpful.
I spent hours creating personalized plans on the site, printed them out, etc. only to arrive and realize we needed to modify. The app won’t let me - it crashes when I try to add reservations, and the site isn’t mobile friendly. So the $18 I spent feels a little pointless now that we’re here.
Used to love this app. Now super klunky and an unreliable pain for planning. Tech support did not respond to repeated issues.
This app is phenomenal to used in conjunction with WDW’s app. By crowdsourcing data, you get a better sense of how to plan your day and how to avoid lines. It needs a better optimization of the order of things like what is available on the website, but otherwise I’d use it again and again if I were to return. Thank you developers for making our trip a breeze!
Purchased from a recommendation from Bethany Vinton. Every prediction they gave was way off and terrible. 45 minute waits were 75. 36 minute waits were 70. I get it’s not confirmed and they are predictions, but this is literally why you buy the access on the app. Do not recommend and would not buy again due to the constant misinformation. Go with the Disney posted wait times.
App crashed the first time I tried to log in. Seems to be unable to accommodate plans for special holiday events. The plans are there but the system will not allow for activities to be entered after main park closures even when you check the boxes to indicate your are attending a special event. To create plans you have to toggle between the website and the app. Really inefficient. Used in the past and it was great. Don’t have high hopes for the accuracy of plan timing now that I’ve read other reviews. Looks like I wasted my money.
I have used this app in the past and it worked well. This time it constantly froze, had inaccurate info, was of no help and a waste of money. Can’t give less than one star.
I recently went to WDW for the first time in almost 20 years for the 50th anniversary. I was determined to see and do everything and downloaded the app to help make that possible. I still saw and did nearly everything, but the app was not nearly as helpful as I hoped it would be. I did not subscribe to the service, so I only had access to the few free plans. I started by copying the ultimate plans. I had to delete all the shows that the app said weren’t offered at the time(and later found out some of them were offered at the time). I added our table service reservations, but was disappointed to find that nearly every time the plan would have us showing up late and would only give an option of getting there within a +/-10 minute window (which it often wouldn’t hit). Often it wouldn’t add the reservations to the plan at all and I would have to add things multiple times before they finally made it in the plan. I had similar problems entering Lightning Lane reservations. The reservations would show up at the top of the plan, but not in the plan itself and the ride’s part on the plan would tell me to go after my Lightning Lane time and wait in line. And if you want to see shows and parades, don’t use the app. Most of the parades weren’t listed in the app and the app would get you to shows way after they started. Then there was the Optimize button. It never stopped optimizing. I eventually started tapping optimize, waiting about 30 seconds or so, then tapping refresh and had some success getting the plan to update/optimize. My guess is the servers the app talks to need some upgrades to handle the volume. I went during one of the least crowded weeks of the year. I hate to think of using it during a weekend in the summer or during Christmas! I managed to successfully submit some wait times, but had a few get hung up in transit to the server and got a message from the app that the wait time was beyond the limit. It seems the shows, character meetings, and parades only get updated yearly. I went in April and holiday shows/parades were listed on the app. They also listed a meeting with Merida from Brave that my husband and I were excited about - Brave is one of my favorite movies, Merida is one of my favorite princesses, and she reminds my husband of me. When we didn’t see it on the My Disney Experience app, we asked about it and the cast member looked at me like I had three heads because Merida hadn’t been around for many months. There is a disclaimer on the ultimate plans that says the plan won’t optimize well. So when we went to Epcot for a full day after going for a half day and knocking out a few things, I made my own plan to give the app a fair shot without using the ultimate plan. Nope. I had the same problems with the optimizing and Lightning Lanes and scheduled reservations and such. On our last day, I don’t think I opened the app at all for our visit to Animal Kingdom. Instead we used the Disney MDE app’s wait times and figured it out as we went. I like the premise of the app and feel there is merit behind it, but the execution is lacking.
I have used this site since 2007. There was a time when their info was invaluable. Since the pandemic, they have no clue what they are doing. The predicted numbers are always wrong and they don’t seem to care. They still charge for that info. It’s basically a scam now. Pretty sad fall.
