  1. Love Mousesavers! They seem to always be on top of the latest greatest discounts and new of the World. Actually used them as a reference in a paper I wrote for my English CompII class. Very good resource. Allears is a good one too but I tend to use Mousesavers as it is easier to navigate for me. All of these choices are good you just need to go to each one and find the one that is right for you.

  2. Tough question since it depends on what I’m researching. I use Mousesavers to find discounts on ticket media, AllEars for dining info and the Disboards for all other wonky questions I might come up with.

  3. I actually tend to mostly just use I usually can find the answers to anything I am trying to find there. I always price out trips on Disney’s site though that can be maddening. For a top tier company their website can be mind numbingly slow and glitchy.

  4. I honestly use them all in some way. My vote goes to though because I love their calendar setup with the crowd tracker and hours. The format just makes it a really handy tool to reference when planning days.

    I’ll give a nod to too, and of course the disboards at

  5. Just signed up with Touringplans for our Jan trip, and we’re liking it so far. TourGuideMike was good also (but $20)… Agree with all above on Mousesavers, it’s free and great, so I’m going to vote for them…

  6. I know this is supposed to be a conversation on the ones we like, but I just want to comment that I paid for a subscription to TourGuideMike and I wish I didn’t. It isn’t that the site is bad, but the information on it is dated and can be found just about anywhere. Not worth the $, IMO.

  7. I use several, but I’d have to say is my favorite, followed by and mousesavers.
