Free Disneyland, Disney World & Universal Orlando Touring Plans
We keep you ahead of the crowds and out of the long lines!
We are convinced that everyone benefits from good theme park touring plans. During busy times, a good touring plan is absolutely necessary to stay out of lines that can literally be hours long. During less crowded times, a good plan adjusts for shorter theme park hours and fewer performances. The most important benefitis that everyone in the family gets to do their favorite rides and attractions because those priorities are all included in a touring plan that lets you experience the theme parks efficiently and effectively. According to research published in the Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World, a good touring plan will reduce your time in line 3 1/2 hours per day, on average. Think about it...that 3.5 hours you don't spend in line can be spent enjoying more attractions or even (I know this sounds crazy) taking a nap.
Doesn't a touring plan take away from magical moments?
NO!!!!! Trust me, there is nothing magical or whimsical about standing in long lines with bored, crabby people. Don't believe me? Since a good touring plan can easily eliminate three hours of line time per day, try standing in any line (the Motor Vehicles Department is a perfect place for this experiment) for three hours with your family. You'll quickly discover that the magical moments aren't happening in that line, my friend; they're happening somewhere - anywhere - else!
Here's the thing - spontaneity isn't random. Malcolm Gladwell says, "Successful spontaneity is where you're free to make decisions about the opportunities that present themselves because the big decisions are already made". That's what touring plans are all about.
Magical Moments happen when your dining reservations are at times that do not conflict with parades and fireworks!
Magical Moments happen you're awake and fresh and get to ride a bunch of rides early in the day when the crowds are at their lowest.
Magical Moments happen when no one feels overlooked and everyone knows that their favorite things are included in "The Plan".
Magical Moments happen when parents have an intentional plan in place for spending time with older children and younger children.
Magical Moments happen when lines are minimized at every ride, not just the few attractions where you have Express Pass or FastPass+ reservations.
Magical Moments happen when the three hours you would've spent in lines are spent seeing characters, watching live entertainment, or stopping for an afternoon swim.

* I can already hear you asking how standardize touring plans will minimize line times if everyone uses the same plan. That would be a problem IF everyone used the plans but the truth is that less than 10% of all Walt Disney World Resort visitors use any kind of plan at all so you and your touring plan will have an advantage over the 90% of Disney guests that just follow the herd.
