Next time you head to SoCal for a Disney vacation, load this app into your iPhone before you go: FastTrac. Disneyland may be the happiest place on earth, but it's also a bustling hub for families, and let's be honest, the crowds have been known to garner more than a few groans from tired parents. If waiting in line for 45 minutes for a quick trip on Space Mountain isn't your idea of a good time, the FastTrac app can help since it plots a timely course for you to get on rides faster.
Just select the rides you want to hit, and FastTrac processes data like time of day, date, and historical facts, then combined with fancy-schmancy algorithms, the app gives you a map and list of rides to hit in order for the least amount of wait time possible. The app even indicates where you'll need to pick up a FastPass for popular rides in order to make the most of your time in the park. All this fun is gonna cost you $5, but I'd say it's well worth the price tag if it means less wait time during peak seasons.
