Personalized Touring Plan Improvements: Copy Plan, Better Interface, Breaks

Hey folks! Over the past month or two, we’ve been slowly but surely improving the interface and functionality for our Disney World and Disneyland Personalized Touring Plans system.

The first thing is the ability to create a Personalized Touring Plan using one of the Premium Touring Plans as a template. Simply go to any of our Disney World Touring Plans or Disneyland Touring Plans and click on the “Copy Plan” link on the top-left. If you want to take the Disneyland Dumbo-or-Die-in-a-Day plan and modify it so your child gets to ride Dumbo at least 5 times, you can now easily do that.

We’ve also been cleaning up the interface: it’s now easier and simpler to create plans and to add and edit attractions and restaurants. We’ve also added a few new data fields: we’ve added “Time of Day” and “How many minutes” to Dining plan steps, and we’ve added “Breaks” to allow you to more easily schedule in downtime. You can now define an optional Start & Finish time to the plan itself, so you can keep track of when you’re arriving and departing.

Just a reminder: any touring plans that you create on the site, you can also access via our Disney App, Lines!

Lots more exciting things to come to the system… so stay tuned!

    We’re really enjoying playing with and testing out the personalized plan feature to see how we should use it in our family for an upcoming trip. We stumbled upon an oddity today that I wanted to bring to your attention. Tom Sawyer Island closes at dusk and this is not taken into account. In fact, our most recent optimization suggests doing TSI right before Wishes, obviously that won’t work. And when we look at the wait times for this attraction, it is listed as 5 minutes through park closing at midnight. I haven’t explored your plans enough yet to know how you handle play areas in general, but it would be great if you could allow us to allocate a certain amount of time, like we do for a break, because there is no set attraction duration for play areas like this. We’re having a great time with Lines for Android, maybe TOO much fun! 😉
