LINES will help you save time and money during your Disneyland trip. Because we’re independent travel writers, we can tell you what Disney can’t, from actual waits in line, to which park will be less crowded every day of your trip. LINES features include: -Both Disney’s currently posted wait time at every attraction and how long you’ll REALLY wait in line, based on our experience and that of thousands of families on the same ride. -New “Ride Now” and “Wait to Ride” recommendations to show whether waits are going up or down at your favorite rides. -Customized step-by-step touring plans for both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure. You tell LINES which rides you want to see, and LINES will create a step-by-step itinerary showing when to go to each ride to avoid long lines. You can even change your plans while you’re in the park! -A Crowd Calendar showing you how busy each park will be over the next ten days. -Disney’s official app doesn’t show you the waits for many attractions or character greetings. LINES has wait times for more rides, shows, and character greetings than even Disney’s own app. -See which rides still have FASTPASS ride reservations for the rest of the day. This is incredibly useful if you’re trying to plan your afternoon and evening, if you want to know whether FASTPASS is available at Splash Mountain after your nap, or if trying to decide which park to go to after dinner. -Ask questions and get fast answers from our online community of 120,000 Disney experts. -Menus and prices for every restaurant, kiosk, food stand, and cart in all of Disneyland Resort – more than 6,000 things to eat! Every menu is searchable – you can find every steak in California Adventure or throughout the parks, Downtown Disney, and the official Disneyland Resort Hotels! Our Disney trip planning tools have been featured in USA Today, the New York Times, FOX News and dozens of other newspapers, magazines, television and radio shows. Since 1986, we’ve helped more than 3 million families plan their Disney vacations. Note: Some LINES features, such as the crowd calendar and wait times, require an in-app subscription purchase to access. Other LINES features, such as customized touring plans, menus, and viewing chat forums, are completely free. Your in-app subscription includes 365 days of access to TouringPlans.com, the Web’s most popular subscription-based site for Disney trip planning.
Loved the concept of the Lines app. I had my 12yo create and optimize her own plans to identify priorities. Appreciated being able to set parameters like max pass and magic morning. Agree with the feedback that being able to create a joint plan for both parks (with a Hopper parameter) would be super useful. Using the app at Disneyland was clunkier than expected. It would be really useful to be able to drag steps up and down. App response time was slow so the move up move down was cumbersome if you wanted to moved something more than one place. In addition, it would be really great to be able to pin rides to a certain order regardless of FastPass return time. For example, it may be optimal to go on Space Mountain first but my kids had never ridden a roller coaster before so we didn’t want to start there. If we could have pinned Peter Pan or something then optimized it could have made it much easier to plan based on our particular needs, not just reducing wait time. All this said, would totally use again on our next visit. We used the book as well and it made our trip a million times better than it would have been otherwise.
The app is good overall. The issues I have are as follows 1) I can ALWAYS cut time off their optimized plans by adding more FASTPASSes. Always. It never recommends enough. 2) I can usually cut time off of their optimized plans by just rearranging for a few minutes to get things closer together. 3) It doesn’t suggest pulling FASTPASSes using MaxPass during meals and breaks which is an enormous missed opportunity 4) You can’t park hop on one touring plan. That may be fine for the WDW logic that lies as the basis of this code, but it’s a huge miss at DLP 5) You can’t have it optimize across days. Say I am going to DLP for 3 days and I want to ride/see these 65 things, what’s the best way to allocate them across days? 6) the estimated FP return times are sometimes fine and sometimes insane. Sometimes I’ll make a plan and optimize it and then evaluate it a month later and the FASTPASS windows will be half a day off. It’s certainly better than nothing and is worth the $ for people willing to take the time to program past its faults, but it would be so much better if they’d make some overdue updates.
We took our kids to Disneyland for the first time this week. I haven’t been in years. My twins are 5. I attempted to use the app and create plans for the best of with kids day and other suggested similar plans. I had a hard time going back and forth on the app trying to locate the plans I created bcuz everytime I had to use my phone for something else it would kick me out. Took too much time to get back to where I needed which o didn’t have the patience for while trying to plan my day. Got to Disneyland City Hall to talk to them about plan for day and clarification on best way to use our Max Pass. Showed her the plan from this app and she told me it was way too much jumping around to do with kids and lay out a plan for me step by step with what rides to go on, when to plan next fast pass.... etc. and it was perfect. For me, this app was useless and I didn’t even use it. All I needed was the Disneyland app and I had everything I needed for both parks. Disappointed I paid for this not to get anything out of it.
Perhaps Touring Plans are better suited for the Walt Disney Works Resort parks; however, I’d like to try it again for the Disneyland Resort since I have a slightly longer stay and can spread things out a bit. The TPs tend to compress the plans to the the beginning of the day without any real give in the schedule for fluff time. Break times are included in the program, however I found that they would get rescheduled from time to time. I still think the TPs are great. I hope to have a better experience this time around.
Touring Lines is the first place I go each time I start planning a Disney World or Disneyland. I love their accuracy, ratings, and the business of each day historically.
Asking me to write a review
The app is worth every last penny based on my experience. I used it multiple times for Disneyland and WDW. The app allows you to build customized itineraries, and then provides projected wait times. You can move the order around and the app will reassess your plan. Pretty amazing - and pretty darn accurate. Also has ride, show and dining reviews. You can search menus Highly recommended
I’m actually really pleasantly surprise good buy!!! Should’ve arrived as early as recommended
The app has very helpful information, even since Disney created their own official app with wait times. The touring plans and posted vs. actual wait times feature are worth the subscription. However, this app design looks like it’s about 10 years old. It isn’t even optimized for an iPhone X and newer display, so much of the screen real estate is wasted.
App says Frozen Live is today at California Adventure. It is not. Crowd estimates seem way off as well. Not helpful when planning at all at this point.
