Description

Spending time lining up in front of attractions in an amusement park drastically reduces fun in the park. In this project, we aim to investigate the line-up policy in Tokyo Disney Land and visualize it using a dynamic map. This is because Tokyo Disney Land has been considered as the most complex dynamic system and one should maximize the value of each visit.

Several factors such as attraction wait times, FASTPASS ticketing status, scheduled start times for entertainment, and walking speeds could be considered for the policy as well as the elements for visualization.
