Why we like it -- Some folks stroll through Disney parks like they have all the time in the world. The rest of us have children and limited time, and we know that waiting 90 minutes for a ride can destroy a family’s morale. This app solves that problem beautifully, by giving you the wait times for every Disney ride, so you can plan accordingly. Reviewers give the app high marks for the accuracy of the data. You can pay $1 to eliminate ads, but you can get away just fine without spending the cash.

Improvements we’d like to see -- Especially for the $1 version, you should be able to see the rides arrayed on a map, so you can plan your day accordingly. It would also be great to be able to sort the rides according to the shortest or longest wait times, or according to how age-appropriate they may be. By now, the company should have great data on the average wait times for different points in the day. Why not share that data with users, in case they’d like to take their chances and come back a few hours later?
