There’s a new update to the iOS version of the WDW Lines app, and here’s what it means for you.
For Personalized Touring Plans, you can now:
- Add a Lightning Lane return time that you’ve secured
- Add a Boarding Group number you’ve been assigned
- Add a duration to attractions like Club Cool
- Add a scheduled arrival time to experiences like Droid Depot
- Add/edit notes on plan steps.
Note that some features will only show up on plans for the current date after the plan’s park is open for the day. For example, you can only add a Lightning Lane return time for a plan for today. Those options will be absent from plans for other dates.
New Interface for Plan Steps
A new “popover” menu is where we have moved the Step Complete, Delete From Plan, and wait time submission buttons.
You can also now submit a posted wait time while you have a timer running for a line you’re currently waiting in. We also added “password suggest”, so if you’ve logged into touringplans.com on Safari on your iPhone before, the app should suggest that password when logging in to Lines. Most of the other changes are behind the scenes, with several upgrades to libraries used that will enhance performance in iOS 15.
With these improvements, we expect you to be able to plan your day better while using our app in the Walt Disney World theme parks. Enjoy!
We expect an Android release of these new features later in 2021. (The Android release happened!)
Some customers have reported that the new app crashes after logging in. If you experience this, please remove the Lines WDW app from your phone and then install it fresh from the App Store. If you notice other issues with the app, please contact us and report them.
Others have encountered network errors when trying to use our app on a cellular (LTE, 5G, etc.) network, even though it works fine on Wi-Fi. This not a new problem related to this update, but recent versions of iOS allow you to enable/disable cellular data access on a per-app basis. Go to your phone Settings, then tap Cellular. At the bottom of that screen, there is a list of apps and a slider that determines whether they can use cellular data. Make sure that cellular data access is enabled for the Lines WDW app.
