I like Lines from tourinplans.com, it's free to download and you can look at a limited amount of wait times but for full access you need to subscribe and its about $10 a year.

I also like Disney World puzzles it was free, neat way to pass the time when waiting somewhere. And Walt Disney World Fun Facts, it was free too.

I have a touringplans subscription, I thought I had to pay extra for the app!!! I used the browser version on my semismart phone last trip and it was so helpful!!!


I am going to have to check out the puzzles and the fun facts one! Thanks!

If you have lots of ADRs or confirmation numbers to keep up with check out TripIt. They have a free simple version and a paid for upgrade to a more complete version. It's great for organizing your trip.

If you have Verizon - Mobile Magic - it's free. This is the Disney wait time app from Disney and has the wait times actually listed outside the rides. Also you can get fast pass availability and return time for those fast passes, character locations and times, dining availability and reservations, and maps. However, the actual wait times are only available when in the park - if not in the park it shows "High Demand", "See Now", etc. You can use it at WDW or DL.
If you go to Universal, Universal also has a free app similar to Mobile Magic.

Few seem to ever mention Disney's own mobile website m.disneyworld.disney.go.com. It has wait times, park hours, show times, restaurants, fastpass availability, maps etc. Works very well and its free. I also use touringplans app.

The Disney Mobile Magic App doesn't work for iPhones yet though, right? Maybe this website is different from the app, and if so, I'll have to check it out!!
