    I liked EasyPlans, too... but hadn't thought about the shortening to EP.

    How about JoshPlans?

    I think branding is important so "easy" lower case should be part of any product you create.

    Actually I think easyPlans would work even if people do shorten it to EP. If you are targeting first time or newer WDW travelers (like me) with the plans, we don't know that EP is supposed to be Epcot. My original plans developed with no help (which were terrible by the way) used EC as shorthand for Epcot. I used this site and its verbage to help me develop my shorthand. So if easywdw says EP means easyPlans and EC or ET or EPC means Epcot that is what I'm going to believe.

    However, I will not eat at the Sam's Club snack bar - even if you suggest I do.

    My thoughts...it looks great! Awesome job. Somehow it makes DHS seem much smaller! As for a name & branding how about EasyBlueprint? But really Blueprint is fine. You have done a lot of hard work though and do need to somehow brand it. You should get the credit for it if "stolen".

    Ok. I went back and see that you think easyBlueprint is too long so never mind on that. I just know that I am anxious to see the MK plans!

    easyPlans sounds good - keeps easy theme and differentiates yourself from the others

    More search engine friendly than blueprint also I would assume.

    I didn't think of that, but it probablybwould be. Googling easyplans gets a lot of hits as well

    Maybe for the second anniversary I will revert the site to how it used to look. I wish I had a screenshot. It used to be based on this theme: http://www.lightword-design.com/

    How about STEPS for (S)electable (t)ouring (e)asyWDW (p)rint(s)...or the last could be (p)lan(s). Just throwing some ideas. I like the original as well as some of the others mentioned.

    The all black was pretty depressing. One of these days I will switch over to "2.0" probably after these touring plans, I mean easyblueprintplansbyjoshateasywdw.com are re-done.

    I like Josh's easyPLANS - a blueprint for visiting WDW. Yeah a little long, but I'm ok with that.

    I think you're honing in on something there...

    I think you'd be okay with abbreviations with Epcot (EP) and easyPlans (eP). You'd have a MK eP, an AK eP, a HS eP, and lastly, an EP eP!! Glad some of you liked my suggestion! Josh if you use it I get a free lifetime membership, right?!?

    I like these alot.

    A couple of comments-- I just scanned the thread so these might have already been mentioned:
    1) Maybe make the background white. Some people might be a little reluctant to print it out because of how much ink it would use. The color in the actual map is worth it. You also might want to check your color scheme to see if it will work for common types of color blindness if you haven't already.

    2) The font size of some of the text on the map is a little hard to read at 100% zoom on my screen. I could read it fine, but I know my mom would struggle or not be able to read some things at all. I did not print it out so it may be better printed.

    3) A more general thought that I had is that you might want to separate your suggested touring plan maps from custom (make-your-own) touring plans maps. For example, if someone made their own touring plan using the dropdown menus on page 2, it might be kind of confusing to look at the map with the numbers from your touring plan. I guess this kind of depends on what your goal is for the maps.

    Here's version 2 with a slightly altered map: http://www.easywdw.com/hs_adult_halfday.pdf

    It's now titled, the "map legend" is moved to the top right, the logo of the site is in the bottom right, and the green background was removed.
