I’m new to the app. Loving creating my plans so far. My question is once I get to the parks, do I delete things from my plans as I do them so the app will adjust things? And do I keep clicking “Customize” as we go to maximize our time? If there is a help section for this kind of stuff. Let me know. I’m OCD & would love all the tips! TIA
On the date of your plan the “done” button will appear ( you can test this by creating a plan for today). The morning of your plan and after a couple of steps you should “optimize” your plan.
It helps all of us if you could also report the posted wait times and time your actual times every once in a while. Have fun!
Welcome to the forum! You’re in good company.
Tips abound here. Ask all the questions and have a good look around. One of my favorite parts of touring plans besides creating the plans is reading trip reports. There are a couple that just ended that are worth taking a read through. New ones should be coming up soon. They’re fun to read in real time. Everyone here is super friendly and always happy to help.
Thanks so much!
Great! Thank you! I can’t wait.
So it sounds like an “optimize” once or twice during the day is enough? I should not then be optimizing after every ride?
I’m always curious how many times people optimize during the day.
I’ve not been using my app b/c of how frequently it signs me out
I kind of base it off how the day seems to be going and how far off plan I appear to be. If I’m more than 10-15 minutes behind, I reoptimize.
I reoptimized a LOT last trip
I’ve never optimised, I use printed plans.
I may have over-optimized the last trip in Dec. 2020. We must have crisscrossed MK 4 times in under an hour, the ride order changed like 5 times, and … well … my kids may have mutinied…
On my last trip I optimized the morning of and then after every other ride. It definitely changed a lot as the morning went on.
This may have changed from last time I used a TP back in 2018, but if you click “done”, it’s gone forever, even in the desktop version, yeah?
I like to keep my plans as sort of a diary of what I did. So I may need to create secondary plans for real time optimization if it still deletes stuff. (Actually - nm. I just remembered you can’t view your step notes in the Lines app, so I’ll probably just print a paper plan…)
You could print to a PDF and then still look at it on your phone if you need to.
In the app is there a way to favorite only rides that interest you? I’d love to only see my favorites at a glance in each park when I’m not looking at a plan and looking at the live report for the park instead.
