Easy WDW or Touring Plans-which is more reliable?

Trying to plan our days for an upcoming trip and I am trying to decide which of these websites are more reliable. Any one have experience with these? Thanks!

I prefer the logic behind easy wdw's predictions so we tend to use them more.
We do use touring plans for thier wait time app Lines.

I like TGM and Easy. Both are reliable. TP has steered us wrong many times.

We followed Touring Plans last week and it was SPOT ON! So glad we followed their suggestions for which parks to visit on certain days. It was amazing how accurate it was!

Another Touring Plans supporter. I've used them for several years and always felt that they were as accurate as one can be in predicting things like that. I've never felt the need to use any other trip planning source. Many people use easywdw and feel it is very good as well. I don't think you can go wrong with either one.

I like EasyWDW because he rarely changes his predictions. Touring Plans occasionally sends out new updates/recommendations right up to the week before, due to everything being based on some kind of mathematical algorithm. To me, that's not terribly "reliable".

I feel more secure making my ADRs based on Josh's recommendations, knowing they're not likely to change dramatically.

You can do a quick search on these boards and find about 30 threads just like this all asked within the last 6 months.

This is a very common question.

I use Touring Plans and have found them most accurate.

I think most of the ppl who prefer EasyWDW prefer it because it is free.

The $12 it costs to subscribe to Touring Plans for a year is well worth it just for the best and worst park recommendations or the Lines app.

Of the two you are asking about, I prefer Easy.... NOT because it is free, but because it is more reliable for accuracy. I subscribed to TP twice and found their "predictions" to be WAY off.

I still like TGM as well. I like the assistance that can be obtained through the forums.

I find EasyWDW to be spot on.
