LINES will help you save time and money during your Disneyland trip. Because we’re independent travel writers, we can tell you what Disney can’t, from actual waits in line, to which park will be less crowded every day of your trip.
LINES features include:
-Both Disney’s currently posted wait time at every attraction and how long you’ll REALLY wait in line, based on our experience and that of thousands of families on the same ride.
-New “Ride Now” and “Wait to Ride” recommendations to show whether waits are going up or down at your favorite rides.
-Customized step-by-step touring plans for both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure. You tell LINES which rides you want to see, and LINES will create a step-by-step itinerary showing when to go to each ride to avoid long lines. You can even change your plans while you’re in the park!
-A Crowd Calendar showing you how busy each park will be over the next ten days.
-Disney’s official app doesn’t show you the waits for many attractions or character greetings. LINES has wait times for more rides, shows, and character greetings than even Disney’s own app.
-See which rides still have FASTPASS ride reservations for the rest of the day. This is incredibly useful if you’re trying to plan your afternoon and evening, if you want to know whether FASTPASS is available at Splash Mountain after your nap, or if trying to decide which park to go to after dinner.
-Ask questions and get fast answers from our online community of 120,000 Disney experts.
-Menus and prices for every restaurant, kiosk, food stand, and cart in all of Disneyland Resort – more than 6,000 things to eat! Every menu is searchable – you can find every steak in California Adventure or throughout the parks, Downtown Disney, and the official Disneyland Resort Hotels!
Our Disney trip planning tools have been featured in USA Today, the New York Times, FOX News and dozens of other newspapers, magazines, television and radio shows. Since 1986, we’ve helped more than 3 million families plan their Disney vacations.
Note: Some LINES features, such as the crowd calendar and wait times, require an in-app subscription purchase to access. Other LINES features, such as customized touring plans, menus, and viewing chat forums, are completely free. Your in-app subscription includes 365 days of access to TouringPlans.com, the Web’s most popular subscription-based site for Disney trip planning.

The touring plans are great but ...
My wife and I got to Disneyland Park at 12:30pm on a day we planned to get there before the 8:00am opening time. Life interfered. We had fun judging the accurate wait times for various attractions displayed on this app, saw displayed Fast Pass return times, and was able to plan accordingly. We had a blast!
Next time we went, we used a personalized touring plan and we saved hours waiting in line. Bless you web designer Len Testa. I also love your Disneyland and Walt Disney World Unofficial Guide Books.
I know what you're wondering. You ask "If you love us so much, why 4 stars and not 5?" Now that I live in Los Angeles, I became an Annual Pass holder. It allows me to hop between parks. Your personalized touring plans doesn't have the option of designing a plan that would mesh Disneyland Park and Disney's California Adventure together for a one-day two-park plan. That would be so helpful.
I am also going to nitpick, but I probably wouldn't have taken a star away for this. On your list of attractions to ride, along with listing each Disneyland Railroad Station separately, you should also have a one circuit around the park choice too.
"Thanks for riding and enjoy the rest of your stay at the Disneyland Resort.."
Was great but chat is ruining it
I have used this app for years and found it really helpful, especially the chat. Unfortunately while the wait times are still great to have, the chat has become a tremendous waste of time. It used to be that you could see all kinds of great up to date info from experts. I really was helpful for planning that rare vacation. But a very small group of “liners” have completely taken it over. You have to read their personal thoughts on things like homelessness (people “want” to be homeless), immigration (anyone without insurance must be an “illegal alien”), and such mundane things as how someone feels about stubbing their toe. I wish I was making these up. What any of this has to do with disneyland is beyond me. The chat moderator seems to think that this is fun for us to read and we can “chose” what to read, but you can’t find any good information without sorting through the personal stuff people post online. Use the online version and print your itinerary, or get the app for the wait times. But save your precious time and stay away from the chat, we take disney vacations to get away from this sort of thing. Look for up-to-date info from other sources that are true travel sites with useful information.
I used to recommend this to all my friends, but was embarrassed after the last person asked why I thought this would be useful. So sad to see something so good fall so far because some people they can’t find another venue for their social needs.
Good but not quite there
Very helpful for our first day but missing a couple key features that made it difficult to use our second day:
(1) DL and DCA use separate plans. If you have a park hopper ticket and don’t mind walking back and forth, the app doesn’t seem to know how to optimize your day.
(2) There doesn’t appear to be a way to constrain ride times. For example we wanted to do Grizzly River Run later in the day with a Fast Pass when it was warmer but the Optimize step would always put it early in the morning. This had a ripple effect that led to us to largely ignore the plan.
Also, since we always want to do more than we have time and energy for, it would be helpful to be able to tag each item with a level of importance to us.
Also, the Optimize step was too risky. We nearly missed the end of the 15 minute Fast Pass grace period multiple times because of unexpected delays. It would be helpful to tell it how much risk we are willing to take.
Finally, the app is too slow. Many times we refrained from using it because of the sluggishness. This was especially the case for non essential functions like logging wait time. This may help explain why its wait times were often so far off: Almost nobody is contributing wait times because it’s so sluggish.
