Ridemax and DHS

I'm a new user of Ridemax. I really liked the plan it did for AK, although I was surprised that it said to ride Primeval Whirl first (we're not doing KS since we are doing the sunrise safari)...........but I'm not so sure about the plans for DHS.
It does not have me getting nearly the amount of stuff done that we usually get done in a day at DHS. We always see Beauty and the Beast, Voyage of the Little Mermaid, Indiana Jones stunt show, Playhouse Disney, GMR, Muppetvision, and One Man's Dream. Plus we usually ride Star Tours, RNR, and ToT several times. And on top of that we waited for 60 minutes last year to see TSM. Usually having lunch at Sci-Fi and dinner at Pizza Planet. We also never miss Fantasmic.
Ridemax is not allowing me to get nearly that much done. I've tried doing a full day. I've also tried doing it two half-days (one day 9-1 and the next day 2:00-9:00) and I still can't fit all that in.
Is anybody else finding that Ridemax tells them that they have too many attractions, but its still less than you usually get done????
TIA,
Erin

Sorry I can't help. I don't think I've heard of ridemax. Is it like tour guide mike and the unofficial guide website?

Yes. It helps with planning like TGM and Touringplans. Ridemax is a little different because its a program you download off the internet. You are then able to put in your dates and what attractions you want to do on that date. It then tells you the best order to do the attractions in order to minimize wait time.
A lot of people on here swear by it.

I used RideMax last year and got that message a few times also. The information is based upon crowd predictions, walking times, break times and recent wait information. I found it to be pretty accurate, but we didn't always follow it to the letter. I had to be flexible with what the family wanted to do.
I found what was best for my family was paying attention to the rides whose fast passes were full early and the times to get a new fast pass.
If you follow the plan that Ridemax spits out and find that you are ahead of the schedule, just move up the next attraction and then with the extra time, do items that did not fit into the RideMax schedule.
Good Luck!

I used RideMax and didn't have that happen, and your question was - has that ever happened to you?

We didn't find RideMax ever suggesting less things than we normally do, for any park, and we usually do quite a bit.
