I used a Touring Plan for our first trip to WDW last year to great success (I seriously trumpet this site to anyone who mentions they might be doing WDW). I've been to DL a handful of times and am aware of the differences (parks are basically across the street from each other, much more compact), though I haven't been in about 5 years so I'm no longer familiar with the crowd levels. I've chosen a Wednesday in October, which is showing as a moderate crowd level across 3 different crowd calendars.
So... I'm sitting here trying to decide whether a TP is worth it for my family of 4 adults. We'll be doing both parks in one day, very likely from open to close. I'm undecided on Maxpass at the moment. I've already told them we have to be at the park early or I'm dropping them like a hot plate (I'm like a drill sergeant! Only worse). I definitely have to fit: Soarin, Star Tours and Pirates of the Caribbean. I also want to see the Haunted Mansion, Space Mountain and Guardians of the Galaxy Breakout as well (I've never been to DL at Halloween!)
TL,DR; Have you done a TP for DL recently? Does it work as well as the WDW ones seemed to (last year)?
