    Default WWYD Touringplans vs Disney Advisor

    I'm taking family to DW next week for first time (for them). It's changed so much since I used to go. I reserved through a service and she's sent me touring plans, but when I plug them into Touringplans.com it just doesn't work (too long wait, break moves 4 hours etc..) Which would you go with? I'm obsessed with touringplans and feel like they have science (ok algorithms) on their side, but she's paid to give me good advice. She's rearranged my fast passes and dining reservations so I'm concerned I should stop it.

    Any advice?

    Why not post your possible schedules here or on one of the Disney websites, like DisBoards, and see what the feedback is?

    Did you use touringplans.com or another plan? Just wondering if the accuracy is good?

    touringplans.com and also the app when at the park it was pretty accurate for us and the best was to use it to plan where to be when (what part of the parks) to save walk and wait times

    Josh at the easywdw website/forum is really helpful with giving feedback on your touring plans.

    Thanks. My service lady had another touring planner look at it and revised. It works for me and touringplans.com now. The other days were fine and checked out so I think I can relax a little. I'll report back (and definitely use the app while there).

    Just reporting all went fabulous. Touringplans.com worked great. Lines app allowed for a little detour from plan. I was able to adjust during day and during busiest days we never waited more than 10 minutes for most and 20 for only a few really popular rides.
