    Re: Live, REAL-TIME updates for FastPass and Wait Times!

    thanks again. it's not actually an app (at this time), it's purely web based. and for the moment, it's being made to help me out when i'm there, but I'm happy to share it.

    I would actually love it if people could start testing the GPS functionality (sorting by Near). I only have TDL working right now, but should have TDS soon. I'm just wondering how well it works.

    If you move around, refreshing should update your location. it won't refresh on its own, though I'm planning on just forcing one every 5 mins or so.

    bradk - This would be SO USEFUL for my trip in May! If you choose to keep it up after your trip of course.

    Thanks so much for making/sharing this - it's something I wouldn't have the knowledge to do that's for sure!

    DuffyDaisuki - Thanks for the link and the translated answers! Despite it being Japanese it works quite well doesn't it? This way whether in English or Japanese I will be much better off on my trip

    I only really go to TDS. I'll test it when that's up, though.

    Re: Live, REAL-TIME updates for FastPass and Wait Times!

    I have a lot of TDS with GPS now, but it's a much tougher park to guess the coordinates. Mermaid Lagoon is not done and a few others, but most of the park is. Depending on how bad it is, I might make a point to record actual coords when I'm there.

    As for supporting it beyond my own trip, the wait times is automated and comes from TDR directly so it should continue to work until it breaks which I make no guarantees of. But I'd like to see where it goes.

    Re: Live, REAL-TIME updates for FastPass and Wait Times!

    Update: I used the page frequently in the parks last week - Thanks, it enabled us to make informed decisions on what/when to ride and get FPs.

    The only issue I had (nothing to do with the wait times), was that Softbank - the cell provider my iP5 would connect to, had issues establishing data connections at times. I had to reboot the phone numerous times a day to re-establish the data connection.

    Thanks again!

    I used it last week too. Very helpful. I had Softbank as well, but it worked pretty well with the rented iphone.

    Did you get the data connection drop-outs? Cell coverage was fine, but my wife's Droid phone could never get a data link, and mine would work fine for hours then glitch.

    Re: Live, REAL-TIME updates for FastPass and Wait Times!

    No problem, I appreciate the feedback.

    The GPS feature worked surprisingly well for me I think. The coordinates are off (and incomplete for TDS) but at the rate I'm covering the parks, I think I'll try to come up with an easy way to log accurate coords to use.

    As for data, I rented a mifi from Telecom Square. Not sure of the carrier offhand (the battery died), but it worked fairly well in TDL. Only went out a couple of times inside show buildings (naturally). I've read TDS is tougher on cell signals though, will be visiting there tomorrow.

    The only time we had data trouble was when we were underground. Other than that, no problems at all. I was quite pleased because I heard Docomo was much better than Softbank.

    Re: Live, REAL-TIME updates for FastPass and Wait Times!

    what a fantastic little page that is/was, (tdwait.com), i have been checking it regularly the past few weeks to try and garner what the waits will be like on the days we are going (TLD Wed 5/29 and TDS Thur 5/30).

    Unfortunately, now it seems to be stuck on the same numbers all the time. I suspect the reason is something similar to why I can't access the official Disney page showing the times on my PC either. It says it's for mobiles only, but there is no english version!! Grrr! And DeepDisney is fairly cluttered and nowhere near as nice looking!

    It was still very useful though, well done to the author!
