Yes, best app for the parks on my Iphone. Their Wait Times are the most accurate of anything I've seen. If it saves me 60 minutes in line during my vacation, it's worth more than $10.

Their website is nice, but I love the mobile app for wait times. My subscription has expired, but I'll renew once we schedule our next trip.

I haven't read all the comments on this thread, but I highly recommend Touringplans. Best app for crowds by far and you get so much more than just a crowd calendar and touring plans with the sub. I've been using it since 2008 and would never let my subscription expire. It is so inexpensive for what it is and great value for money IMO

One vote for no

Here's one vote for no. I love touringplans! However you can get the basic subscription for free here: http://touringplans.com/walt-disney-world/join/basic

I'm not sure if that was true at the time the OP first posted (which I know was a while ago), but just thought I'd add that here now in case anyone comes across this thread (like I did )

I think 10$ is worth it to find out. I did it. I liked it. It was fun to use. I did the personalized grouping plans. Used my own plans to evaluate my time. We never follow plans. Things always get in the way. But to me planning is fun so the 10$ was worth it to me even if I didn't follow it during the trip. It helped a lot to rework attractions.

I vote do it I mean it's only 10$. Totally worth it.

That's a good point. With the basic (free) subscription you can make personalized touring plans. But to access the pre-made plans, the crowd calendar, of the queue wait times, you have to have a paid subscription.

Touring plans is great in so many ways. We just did a mini Orlando trip, and had only 3/4ths of day at Disney with a one day park hopper. And I fell in love with touring plans again (used it in an entirely different way than I have in the past.) We had opening till about 1 for things to do at the MK , late afternoon at the Titanic attraction on I-drive, and just 6:30 p.m. to 9 at Epcot. DS (18) and I used the customized optimization plan to figure out what attractions we could get in and a touring strategy, and it worked great. With this we knew it was very reasonable to do seven things at the MK and we picked out favorites, had touring plans optimize the order and give us projected times. Their estimates and the time it actually look us yesterday was practically spot on. We took 15 minutes longer than the projection. Then over to Epcot, we knew in advance that we'd have to wait a really long time, so were totally prepared for the 56 minute long wait projected for Soaring. The actual wait time was 60 minutes, and then with people getting ready to see illuminations it was walk on for two rides on Test Track. It helped us know what to expect, make reasonable choices, and make our day Magical.
