Twiz puts the fun in functionality! Simply pick a starting location (where you are) and then pick the place you want to get to. Mr. Wizard will promptly make fun suggestions about how to get there using Transportation. Mr. Wizard also estimates how long it will take to get there.. By tapping on the route, you get lots of helpful tips about the transportation system and you can share your experience of times and tips with other users.
Imagine you are on your first trip to the Grand Floridian. You arrive at your hotel, unpack your bags and call your friends who happen to be staying at the Boardwalk Inn. You decide you want to meet for dinner at the Flying Fish café… but you don’t have a car, and you have no idea how to get to the Boardwalk from the Grand Floridian. You whip out your iPhone and the WDW Transportation Wizard comes to your rescue; promptly suggesting several routes involving boats, buses, or monorails. He even tells you how long it’s likely to take so you won’t be late for dinner. Thank you Mr Wizard!
Or, perhaps you are a veteran of Disneyworld and love planning daily itineraries. You plan your trip, making a careful schedule of where to eat and which parks to go to when. You decide that a fun day at the Hollywood Studios would really be nicely topped off by dinner at Chefs de France. But how long is it going to take to get there, and what is the funnest possible route (this is a vacation after all!)? You pop out your iPhone and fire up the OLP WDW Transportation Wizard who gives you several recommendations. Oh my gawrsh, I didn’t know you could take a boat from the Studios to Epcot! That sounds like fun! But I will have to allow at least 37 minutes for that trip so we better leave by 5PM to make sure we are in time for dinner at 6PM. Thank you Mr Wizard!
The OLP WDW Transportation Wizard puts the magic of trip planning in your pocket.
The OLP TWiz is based on a program written in 1998 using a proprietary technology. OLP Twiz has been thoroughly tested by thousands of happy users. You can see the original twiz at ourlaughingplace.com where it is still in use today. Lucky for you, you can now carry it around on your iPhone or Touch for ready access.
Review from meltdowndisney.com:
App alert: The OLP WDW Transportation Wizard for Walt Disney World is the best way you are going to invest 8 quarters. After searching for this functionality in a site, which I really thought I had seen, I noticed this app during a buying binge last week.
Even from my couch, I could figure out how to get from Pop Century to The (Real Fantasyland of) Grand Floridian for a pedicure, without scuffing my toes. Especially if you have a child who is committed to taking a particular mode of transportation, this app will give you best case scenario guesses on how long it will take get from point a to point b. Wish I’d had it on my last trips, as does the restaurant manager who smiled as I explained that we took a bus, then a boat to the character meal that was about to close, instead of a plain old bus, which according to “Twiz” would have saved us about 25 minutes. Did I mention it was $1.99? Yes, U.S. $1.99, but still. If you are traveling with a small group, one might suffice. If you are traveling with anyone in my family, make sure everyone has one (especially if you plan to split up for a few hours for naps or swimming) so you don’t have to share, or wait at the turnstile for that last little straggler getting off the boat. Saving time is saving Disney Dollars. Invest.

Ratings and Reviews
I use this app all the time. But like the reviewer above would like to see a spot for suggestions for other or faster routes. On our last trip we stayed at Wilderness lodge and wanted to go to breakfast at the Grand Floridian Cafe. We noticed that some of the buses we took to the parks from WL stopped at the grand Floridian first! So my suggestion would be from WL to GF ask the driver of the early morning bus if they stop at GF first. Most of the buses do! That would eliminate stopping at a park first and transferring!
Glad to have this app on our vacation
We just returned from Disney World and used this app several times. Sometimes it's confusing planning travel time and route options between the parks and resorts, especially if you have dinner reservations at Downtown Disney or a resort other than where you are staying. The Disney Transportation reps will tell you to allow 60 to 90 minutes for getting to your destination, because that allows lots of time for waiting for buses and assumes you are going to the furthest points. We used this app to find the best routes and more accurate travel times (sometimes 20-30 minutes was sufficient) so that we didn't waste a lot of time sitting to wait on our dining reservation. We highly recommend this app.
Helpful to Hoppers
If you plan to hop from park to park, or have dinner reservations at a hotel property - this is a must have app. Though travel times seemed a bit on the optomistic side - I add 15 - 30 minutes in waiting for buses or monorails to the actual travel time listed - we were NEVER late for a reservation. Really helped both in planning and while enjoying the parks. Thanks!
