This past week touring plan predictions for the MK on non party days were pretty far off // Saturday prediction 8 (11/11) / actual 10, Monday (our day 11/13) prediction 6 / actual 8, Wednesday (11/15) prediction 5 / actual 7.
Our plan started just fine with Space Mountain, Buzz Light year, and Tea Cups as walk on but then our originally projected 38 minute wait for 7DMT was actually two hours and it was downhill from there. We missed one of our fastpasses (Pooh which we didn’t really care about just did it because of long line projection), switched the other from Peter Pan to Pirates as we wanted to do that, but didn’t want to do any lines more than 25 minutes, and used our original fastpass for Haunted Mainsion // We still had a great day, but decided to totally skip the following due to long lines (non fastpass) 25 minutes was our cut off – Pooh, Peter Pan, Jungle, Big Thunder, and It’s a small world.
Next time as a back up plan I’m thinking of finding another day with a higher crowd level of lets say 2 points as a back up touring plan.
Anyway, touring plans have worked like a charm for me many times, but with the crowd jump to 8 from 6 the plan just didn’t cut it last Monday. And we did everything as suggested with rope drop and all.
What are your thoughts and experiences? Any good strategies when your plan is way off?.
