This is my 3rd time using Touringplans for my Disney World trips and I have to say it’s great and that there is nothing else like it out there. However I am feeling a little frustrated in using the custom touring plans. I long for a couple new features that I’m not sure if they’ve ever been requested before.
For example this is my first time to the park without our car because we have choose to fly and are staying at Pop Century. Touring plans has been incredibly helpful in picking the room and building I want to be in at the resort with their in depth knowledge and is awesome at telling me when to do rides in the parks but lacks the “whole” day planning that I really want. What I’d like to see is a custom touring plan creator that allows me to plan out when to leave the resort, how long Disney transportation takes on average(which buses to take) to get to my park The other aspect of this would be the ability to add out of “park” dining reservations, for example we have dinner at O’hana at 8:30pm on the same day we are at the Animal Kingdom. It’s be great to know if I have to leave early from Animal Kingdom or if we can stay till it closes and still make our Dinner.
I guess what I’m saying is I’d like an ALL Day planner. Something that shows when I should/want to leave my resort, what transportation to take, what to do at the park, what I need to do to arrive at the correct time for non park ADRs and how to get back to my resort to go to bed. This way I can pull up the planner and use it to plan out the whole day not just when I’m inside the individual park itself. Disney offers so many amazing experiences outside of the parks themselves to their guests that it would be awesome to plan out stuff like this all in one place. Right now I basically have to use an Excel/Word doc with my plans written out till we arrive to the park. Also the transportation thing I think would be huge because it seems to be a black hole on the web, it’s extremely hard to get info on which buses go where and till when. actually the same thing with the boats, but there are a lot less of them then the buses.
I hope this makes sense and would be something that Touringplans may want to look at doing in the future
