New software claims to spit out a customized, minute-by-minute itinerary for a day in the California Disney parks, based on the parameters you give it.
Read more from The Wall Street Journal via The Journal Gazette.
I still think it will become a standard to plan each day (including rides, times to ride, meals times, meals, etc) in advance at parks like Disney.
Of course, the cattle wrangling "public queue" will never go away, but once Disney starts using a similar software themselves (and they will) and combines it with the FastPass system, you'll have prebooked days at the park as part of planning you "Disney Getaway"
Kick: Is that Wisconsin company touringplans.com? They are the "unofficial guide" authors, and they do seem to use a similar scheme, but rather than selling you access to the raw data so you can fiddle with your own plans, you only get one shot at it.
Kyle: take a look at Michael's VIPs; this guy is a former "plaid vest" at WDW (the folks who do tour celebrities around the parks for Disney), and now does private tours to the tune of $95+20%/hour. He also runs my preferred "insider's guide" site to WDW: www.tourguidemike.com (it's a pay site, and well worth it if you are visiting during a busy time.) Based on his posts on the forums there, he keeps pretty busy in the personal touring side of his business. Amusingly, William Shatner was one of his clients.*** This post was edited by Brian Noble 1/4/2005 8:30:41 AM ***
