Pssst: looking for our signature Line Hacks™ program?
You’re in the right place! Keep reading.
Whether it’s your first visit or your 15th, planning a Disney World vacation is no joke.
“It’ll be fun,” they said. “Going to Disney World is totally magical!”
But now you’re sitting at your computer in your bathrobe at 3:00 AM with 14 tabs open, eyes glazed over, heart racing, sweating profusely, jaw clenched, and this close to pulling your hair out.
Maybe you’re traveling with the kiddos and…
Your daughter has her heart set on eating The Grey Stuff in the West Wing at Be Our Guest, and your son has been dreaming of riding on the back of a Banshee in Avatar Flight of Passage for months.
You, on the other hand, have your own grown-up must-dos… like scoring a FastPass for Tower of Terror and catching the Epcot Forever fireworks (#nostalgia) from the perfect spot: the terrace at The Rose & Crown British Pub.
Or maybe your party is adults only, and…
Your thrill-seeker BFF can’t miss Expedition Everest, Space Mountain, or drinking around the World Showcase at Epcot. Your in-laws are fully committed to revisiting The Hall of Presidents, It’s a Small World, and Country Bears Jamboree… multiple times.
The top two spots on your partner’s list? Fly to a galaxy far, far away on Star Tours and get a mega Wookiee hug from Chewie.
And obviously you aren’t leaving without riding your very own doom buggy through the Haunted Mansion or watching Happily Ever After while you stuff your face with dumplings at Ohana.
Everyone has a super-important wish list of extra-special things they absolutely have to do — no matter what your travel group looks like.
Whew — this whole thing has gone from relaxing getaway to grueling endeavor, and you haven’t even left the house yet.
There’s so much to plan and keep track of: travel arrangements, resort reservations, park tickets, park transportation, special events, extra magic hours, dining reservations, deciding whether you want to buy the Disney Dining Plan, figuring out which parks to visit and when, booking FastPasses…
…and then figuring out how to fit it all in – in just a few days.
When it comes to Disney planning, there’s truly an incredible amount of information to juggle.
The fun doesn’t stop there, either. Once you touch down in Orlando, you get to add hot weather, long lines, and heavy crowds into the mix.
Any of these sound familiar?
→ Feeling anxious and frustrated before you even leave for vacation because you weren’t able to get the dining reservations or FastPasses your group wanted most
→ Spending more time waiting in line than actually, you know, riding the rides
→ Waking up before sunrise to get to each park before rope drop
→ Missing out on some wished-for experiences because the lines were just too long
→ Not being able to experience beloved attractions more than once because, again, lines
→ Being completely wiped out by noon because you’ve already crossed the park 8 times sprinting from ride to ride
→ Unsuccessfully trying to make a change to your plans via the My Disney Experience app while in the parks because Disney updated the app AGAIN and now you can’t find what you need
→ Your kid (or your spouse, or maybe even you) having a meltdown. Ahhh, waiting in line for 2 hours in 90-degree weather sure does bring out the best in people!
→ Running out of Disney Dining Plan credits before your trip is over, OR bringing home 37 Mickey krispies because you had too many snack credits left on the last day
→ Coming home from vacation more exhausted than when you left (bleh)
Let’s face it: going to WDW is not cheap, and it’s probably not something your family gets to do very often.
You want to do ALL THE THINGS, and you want everyone to have a great time.
We get it.
But we have good news:
your vacation doesn’t have to be stressful, complicated, or confusing.
That’s exactly why we created the Insider’s Digital Strategy Guide to WDW (with Line Hacks™!)
It’s Time to Ditch the Overwhelm.
What if you could…
→ Ride everything on your wishlist — yes, even Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Space Mountain, Peter Pan, Slinky Dog Dash, and Flight of Passage — without ever waiting more than 10-20 minutes per attraction
→ Spend more time actually experiencing Disney World than standing in line
→ Minimize the stress that often comes with planning and touring
→ Enjoy your favorite attractions more than once per trip (heck, even more than once per day!)
→ Snag last-minute FastPasses for in-demand attractions like Frozen Ever After, Slinky Dog Dash, and yes, even Flight of Passage (see ya, 190 minute standby line!)
→ Know exactly where to use your Disney Dining Plan credits to get the most bang for your buck – with objectivity, not random Facebook group opinions
→ Grab a coveted same-day dinner reservation. Hel-lo, Cinderella’s Royal Table!
→ Say goodbye to feeling rushed
→ Relish these once-in-a-lifetime moments with your family and friends
→ Still have time to sit back, relax, and take in all the magic Disney has to offer
→ Feel like you definitely got your money’s worth by the end of your trip
→ Come home feeling refreshed, happy, and overflowing with gratitude
→ Actually have fun
the Insider’s Digital Strategy Guide to Walt Disney World
(with Line Hacks™!)
Yup, you read that right — the Insider’s Digital Strategy Guide to WDW now includes access to our popular and beloved Line Hacks™ program… and so much more!
If you’re thinking, “this sounds too good to be true,” it’s ok — we get that a lot. 😉
The Insider’s Digital Strategy Guide to WDW isn’t your ordinary informational guide.
It’s a science-backed, data-driven, fluff-free program full of proven strategies, tech tips, and little-known tricks.
Even better? These strategies are constantly tested, reassessed, and revised.
Hey, I’m Ali, the founder of Wish Upon a Planner and creator of Line Hacks™ and the Insider’s Digital Strategy Guide to WDW (with Line Hacks!).
A few years ago, I noticed something: while there’s a lot of Disney information online, it’s often
- not very in-depth
- not focused on how to be strategical (with very specific examples to help you)
- outdated, inefficient, or just plain wrong
- presented in a way that’s confusing
And instead of feeling excited about the planning process and then having amazing days at Disney World, people were anxious, overwhelmed, and exhausted.
So, armed with 15 years worth of spreadsheets and crowd + line pattern research (proud numbers nerd here!), I decided to do something about it.
Our approach is a little different. First, we develop strategies based on actual data. From there, we present that information in the clearest, most useful format for that particular item — whether it be text, flowchart, or video tutorial.
We gather and test the information featured in the Insider’s Digital Strategy Guide to WDW by visiting Walt Disney World (on our own dime) frequently.
What does that mean for you?
⭐ Our information comes from experiencing the parks as tourists (just like you!) — not through attending carefully curated media events
⭐ You always get the most up-to-date information. Disney World is a place of constant change with openings, closings, and refurbishments, so we’re always testing and re-evaluating everything
One more thing: you won’t find any unnecessary filler or fluff in here. We’re here to show you the best strategies for having a successful vacation (you know, the kind where you’re still on speaking terms with your travel group once you get back), and that doesn’t include bombarding you with 32 articles about the newest shirt color available in the parks.
Yes, we love Disney… but we also love being efficient consumers, and you can always count on our team to give it to you straight. No bias. No nonsense.
There’s no such thing as the perfect itinerary. Instead, the Insider’s Guide to WDW (with Line Hacks™!) gives you a flexible framework to create the best vacation for you.
Whether you’re a serious planner or you prefer to be more spontaneous, the Insider’s Digital Strategy Guide to WDW has tips, tricks, and touring plans to fit your style. Yup, we guarantee it.
Your time is valuable, and the one week a year you get to spend ignoring your emails and watching the magic come alive with people you love?
We’re gonna guess that’s even more priceless.

I’ve been to Disney World like, 15 times OR I’m a Florida resident/Annual Passholder/Disney Vacation Club member. Will this teach me anything new?
Yes, it will! While we think beginner-to-intermediate Dis-goers will get the absolute most out of Insider’s Digital Strategy Guide to WDW (with Line Hacks™!), seasoned Disney pros love it, too! We actually get a ton of positive feedback from Florida residents, Annual Passholders, and DVC members who didn’t realize there was even more to know. And if, for any reason, you’re not completely satisfied with the Insider’s Digital Strategy Guide to WDW (with Line Hacks™!), we offer a 100% money-back guarantee. After almost 10,000 purchases and a 96% satisfaction rate, we think the chances of you learning something new are pretty dang good.
How long will it take me to get through this information? I don’t have a lot of spare time (or I'm leaving soon! Or I'm on vacation now!)
We hear you! Most people will be able to get through all of the content in about two hours. Even if you’re already on vacation and you only have 20 minutes to spare, you can absolutely watch the most critical, impactful videos in that amount of time and start beating those lines.
If you prefer to break the content into 10 – 20 minute sessions over the course of a few days, that works, too! It’s totally up to you. We specifically designed each module to be efficient, easy, and actionable. Don’t worry, this won’t feel like an exhausting college course!
Will this work during holidays or peak times?
We don’t guarantee some of the extreme results you’ll hear in the VIP group for high-peak times or major holidays like Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve, because crowds. If you’re going to WDW around the holidays, will you still be able to implement some of the strategies from the Insider’s Digital Strategy Guide to WDW (with Line Hacks™!)? Definitely! Each year, we hear from happy customers who have lots of success. We’ll be honest: having the information is almost always better than not having the information, but you may not be able to put it all to use, because, again… crowds. 🙂
Spring break and summer, though? That’s a different story! We developed and tested Line Hacks™ specifically to be useful during those times.
I have more than 12 people in my party. Will this work for me?
The Insider’s Digital Strategy Guide to WDW (with Line Hacks™!) works best for groups of 12 or fewer, especially because crowds are such a huge factor when it comes to wait times. For that reason, we don’t make any guarantees for larger groups. The bottom line: we don’t want you to pay for something that you won’t use.
That said, are you still likely to learn something new or useful? Yes! In fact, we often get feedback from people who’ve had success using Line Hacks™ for larger groups:
“I know the hacks work best for smaller groups, BUT this worked AMAZING for our group of 12 last week! Thank you for helping us have the most magical time by not spending it in line.” – Lanah, Wheelersburg, OH
I already have Line Hacks. How is this different?
If you already have Line Hacks™, you’re all set! Nothing changes for you — just log in and enjoy access to ALL the goods until your year is up!
If you don’t already have Line Hacks yet but you’re considering it: The Insider’s Digital Strategy Guide to WDW includes Line Hacks™ and so much more! In addition to our signature Line Hacks™program, you get in-depth planning modules for each park, Dining Hacks, our Dining Plan Optimizer, an assortment of checklists and printables, and access to our VIP Facebook group. Essentially, it’s 4x the awesome content for just $5 more than the original price of Line Hacks.
I have kids in my party OR I don’t have kids in my party. Will this work for my group?
Yes! The Insider’s Digital Strategy Guide to WDW (with Line Hacks™!) is perfect for anyone heading to Disney – crowds don’t discriminate. Bonus for those of you traveling with little ones: many of the toddler rides and character meet and greets are the easiest attractions to use our strategies on!
Can’t I find this information for free using Google?
The truth is, you can find a lot of Disney information for free on the internet. But not all if it is current. Not all of it is good. Much of it is heavily biased towards that writer’s preferences and personality. Not all of it is presented in a way that’s easy to understand and apply. And it’s most definitely not all in one awesome, organized place.
Part of our charm? The Insider’s Digital Strategy Guide to WDW (with Line Hacks™!) has everything you need, all in one place, presented in a helpful, actionable way. We have yet to see anything quite like it.
I feel funny about the word hacks -- does this mean we’re going to be doing something wrong?
We understand. For some people, “hacks” can bring to mind all sorts of nefarious things. In this case, though, all of our “hacks” are just tips and secrets for working within a complex system. Think organizational hacks, shopping hacks, or time management hacks: they’re all there to help you do something better or more efficiently. We’re teaching you some uncommon tricks and showing you how to use Disney’s algorithm to your advantage. Don’t worry: you’ll never find anything bad, unethical, or against the rules here.
Will this work for Disneyland in California?
Nope, sorry! The Insider’s Digital Strategy Guide to WDW (with Line Hacks™!) is currently only good for Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Animal Kingdom, and Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida.
We’ll be publishing a Disneyland Strategy Guide sometime in 2020 though, so make sure to bookmark us!
Won’t these tricks stop working if everyone uses them?
That’s a great question! The keyword here is “everyone.” Walt Disney World gets an average of 55 million visitors each year. In comparison, our community is much smaller and more intimate. If 10,000 people buy the Insider’s Digital Strategy Guide to WDW (with Line Hacks™!) each year, that’s only 0.0001% of total visitors. As you can see, the actual number of people using these strategies is pretty tiny!
What if I’m not super tech savvy?
That’s totally ok! Everything in the Insider’s Digital Strategy Guide to WDW (with Line Hacks™!) is user-friendly and easy to navigate. We’ve taken extra care to present all of the information in the simplest, most helpful way. Even better: our video tutorials will walk you through all of the Disney World tech you need to know about, including the notorious My Disney Experience app.
I’m a Travel Agent/Blogger/Influencer and I’d love for my clients to have this information. Can we work together?
We do offer a generous affiliate program as well as a bulk discount rate for travel agents (bulk only, not for personal use). We have a lot of TAs that use our guide and encourage clients to!
Bonus: after incorporating our materials into their planning and marketing, travel agents often see their bookings increase. Woohoo!
To get started, shoot us an email at email@example.com
Please note that TAs (or anyone) may not share their access to the guide, our works are federally registered and this is a violation and copyright and punishable under the law.

Ready for some math!?
Don’t worry, it’s fun math! (But all math is fun math, don’t @ me)
If you’re in the parks for around 10 hours each day, the average cost per person, per hour of vacation is $40. If you’re part of a group of 3, that means your trip is running you $120 PER HOUR.
But there’s a better way. You don’t have to waste that time and money waiting in line.
We guarantee that the Insider’s Digital Strategy Guide to WDW (with Line Hacks™!) will save you at least one hour per day. Our average user reports saving around six hours per day and more than 20 hours per week.
- 20 hours saved per week with a party of 3 = $2,400
- One hour saved per week with a party of 3 = $120
- Insider’s Digital Strategy Guide to WDW (with Line Hacks™!) = $24.99
