Free Walt Disney World Theme Park Touring Plans





 

Build a Better Mouse Trip is about creating a better Disney vacation for you without spending more money. We are convinced that everyone benefits from good theme park touring plans. During busy times, a good touring plan is absolutely necessary to keep you ahead of the crowds and out of the long lines. During less crowded times, a good plan adjusts for shorter theme park hours and fewer performances. But the most important benefit is that everyone experiences the rides and attractions they are looking forward to because those priorities are all included in an itinerary that tours 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 1/2hours 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.

Disney parks are not just a bunch of rides - there are wonderful live performances that many guests miss just because they do not even know about them. Most folks depend upon "chance" to place them in the right place at the right time. We want to help you avoid regrets on the plane ride home as you think, "I wish I had known..."

Build A Better Mouse Trip lets you choose one of these three planning services at no additional cost to you when you book your Walt Disney World Resort vacation package through us.

 

1) TouringPlans.com and Lines mobile app:

Touringplans.com is the web face of the unofficial guide. It has great information about saving time and money, the various hotels and resorts, dining, the theme parks and water parks, the crowd calendar for over a year in advance, and a ticket calculator. All that in addition to great touring plans based on computer models honed with years of research and access to Lines, the mobile app with continuously updated wait times on your phone. The Lines mobile app provides the capability to optimize your plans on the fly throughout the day as you make changes or run into any difficulties. This truely offers you the best of both worlds - detailed park touring plans and touring on-the-fly.

 

2) The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World (most current edition) :

This guide has earned a loyal following in the Disney planning community. This 800+ page encyclopedic guide has information about every park, attraction, activity, resort, and restaurant. In their own words "Each year, the Unofficial Guide team views every ride, show, parade, and fireworks extravaganza in Walt Disney World. We've stayed at every Disney hotel (and lots of off-site hotels), and eaten at every restaurant. If a ride isn't worth your time, or a meal isn't worth your money, you'll read about it here." In our opinion - This book and its standardized plans are extremely effective. We have used it with great success for ourselves and customers. Everything about this book is statistical and computational, right down to the "pillow fluffyness". This is an excellent choice for both readers/researchers and someone that does not want to become an expert on Disneyworld. The researcher can consume a massive amount of information, while the vacationer can simply take some advice on resorts, restraunts etc and select ready-made plans from the back of the book to use. This great guide also includes Universal Orlando and Islands of Adventure touring plans.

"Last Minute" customers (less than 2 weeks away) can still take advantage of all the options, but will receive the additional information we provide all our customers via emailed .pdf files.

Remember, you get to choose one of these two options for touring plans at no additional cost to you when you book your Orlando vacation through us. We offer these resources because we want you to have the best possible vacation - that's why our name is Build A Better Mouse Trip
