Surviving the lines at Disney World? There's an app for that
This past weekend, I got through four fun-filled days at Disney World and emerged relatively unscathed from the perils of long lines and the whining that ensues on them. In part I have to thank the temperate weather, but I owe a huge debt of gratitude to the free Undercover Tourist Disney World app which I couldn't have lived without.
The Undercover Tourist app for Disney World
is seriously a godsend. While it has a lot of helpful features, the
most useful are the up-to-the-minute, accurate wait times for every ride
and attraction. If you're in Fantasyland, it can save you a lot of time
and hassle schlepping over to Tomorrowland just to discover that the
Buzz Lightyear ride has a 90 minute wait, or that the Speedway just
shut down for repairs.
It was also great for finding the best restaurants nearby (you can view
in list mode, or using the GPS in map mode) when we were starving and
didn't want to wander all over Animal Kingdom searching for something
besides the pizza joint in front of us. Plus it's got
parade times, attraction and food ratings, and even a daily crowd
forecast to help you plan which parks to hit on which days.
I easily used this app 20 times a day--pretty awesome for a free app. -Liz
