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.

Ratings and Reviews
Not as helpful as hoped for
The plans, optimizing, and wait times are kind of like the weather forecast; they are wrong most of the time but accurate often enough to not be completely ignored. I’m not sure how they estimate their wait times but I think a 7 year old that frequents Disney could do a better job.
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.
Not as accurate as it once was
I renewed my subscription because we have used touring plans many times in the past. This year the app was not accurate at all with its wait times and fast pass return times. I mean not even in the ballpark. Definitely felt like a waste of money this time around.
