best wait time app?

I have been trying to figure out the best most accurate time.wait app. Seems like my Disney experience works good but not sure. Any suggestions?

That's the one I recommend. What I look for is wait times that match the posted ones at the attractions themselves, and MDE does that.

You'll also likely see a bunch of posters say Lines is better, but I do not know.

My favorite is the WDW Waits- Free App! It always seems to be pretty accurate, with the exception of some closings. (For example, the wait for Test Track may go from 100 to about 15 minutes, but really the ride went down...nothing common sense can't look past, but just worth noting!)

We were just there over New Years and Disney Experience App was always right on it. The only other ones we checked was Undercover Tourist App and MobileMagic and they were very reliable.

We love the WDW wait times free app. We've used it the last couple of trips and it has been extremely accurate.

I used to use TouringPlans but it seems as if not enough people use it (probably because it isn't free). On our last visit in October, hardly anyone was posting times so it was practically useless.

We were there 2 weeks ago and the Disney app was spot on. The Touring Plans one was wrong to the point that I just stopped using it altogether. I love their website but the mobile app was just not as accurate!
