For those who have used both, which seems to be most accurate when it comes to wait times, MDE or TP Lines?
Good to know! I typically use TP Lines and will continue to do so this trip - thanks!TP is probably a bit more accurate because those are the actual wait times people are experiencing. The MDE times are just what Disney is saying. And while those can be accurate too, they also can be inflated intentionally for a variety of reasons.
OT, but I have a dumb question as I have never used the TP app.
How does TP gather user wait time data? Does the app provide a timer? Is it up to users to time themselves?
I’ve self-timed waits at various EMM and DAH events just for record keeping and it’s always sort of a pain... I forget to start the clock, stop the clock, I get distracted, etc. Just seems always so difficult to get a totally accurate time unless I make a real effort to stay on top of it.
So how does that work with the TP app? (I know I could go to the TP site and read/ask, just figured I’d ask here).
The MDE app (and posted wait times at the attraction) often overstate ride wait times. That’s not a guaranteed statement because crowd swells, ride stoppages, etc, can create unusual line ebbs/flows, but assuming things are normal, they are often higher.Is MDE app usually off in that the waits are shorter or longer?
