Question What about touring plans?

I've already payed for them and I wonder if we can be confident about the wait time estimate, it seems to me that it's not long enough... Not that we want more wait, but did someone try it in the past and tell me if their estimate was
«the same as reality» or
«good enough to be followed» or
«very bad and ruined my vacations».
So, I'm waiting for you evaluation!
I'm sure someone can tell!

I've used them often in the past and in reality I've hit all of those that you mentioned although in general I find them fairly accurate. I will be using their app when we go again this August.

Hiya! I found touringplans to be very accurate. Not sure if you know this but part of the way they determine the wait times is using real people in the parks. So if you have the app, you can time your wait time vs the posted wait time & submit it. We did this several times during our trip. Or if a ride closes, the app is updated b/c people in the park have reported it closed.
This is part of the reason i think they are so accurate. Hope this helps!

I use touring plans a lot. Its accurate, enough at least to lead you in the right direction.

We used touring plans for our spring break trip. It was the first time we used it. I agree with the PP that it was accurate enough to point you in the right direction. We used touring plans to optimize the order of the rides and attractions we were interested in, (mostly) followed its suggested order, and we hardly ever waited longer than a few minutes in line.
