Hi! I'be been reading a lot prior to our 60 day FP reservation day, which is coming this weekend.
I see that getting a FoP FP is easier the later in your trip that you reserve it. Day 6 of my trip is a Park Hopper Day and I'm aiming for a FoP FP for our group that day, which works well. However, the night before we'll have had a late night due to MVMCP and on Day 6, the plan is to sleep in, head to Epcot mid afternoon to get some character meets that we will miss due to timing on our previous Epcot day (short trip), and THEN go to AK after that for a few rides (short trip), and THEN go to MK for an evening EMH for resort guests.
So, I want to try to do FP for FoP around 5pm, since that works well with our schedule even if we are running a bit behind. However - my question - we can't reserve FP in more than one park at a time, right? So, since FoP at 5pm is my primary FP goal for the day, I cannot use or schedule any FP before FoP unless they are also in AK, correct?
But if I only schedule a FP for FoP at 5pm in advance, there probably won't be much same-day FP availability at MK after that right? We're really only going to AK on this day for FoP, and maybe a snack & letting the kids run around the Boneyard. The wait times for the only other ride we'd do - EE - are low and don't look like we'd need a FP, plus EE is not a must-do that day if we are crunched for time.
If I am understanding everything correctly, it looks like my hope for FoP FP on this day might mean that we forfeit the other two advance FP because lots of MK rides run out of same-day FP prior to 5pm on the day of, per this chart:
Sorry this is so long! Just want to make sure I have this figured out before I schedule our FPs! Thanks for any input!
