No. The most efficient means of traveling into the future is simply to accelerate to relativistic speeds and let time dilation do its job. You will be present for every instant between the now and the then, but your subjective rate of passage will differ from the rest of the universe. If you travel back into the past, well, its already there, or was there. If you create a wormhole into the past you are just following a time-like curve back to an earlier point in the topology. Traveling in reverse from the past end of the wormhole to the future end, well, the topology is already there, you are following a timelike curve to the new surface of the balloon in the future. Its not there now...
