So for our last day in MK, we’ll be focusing on using ETPE in TL and then lingering there to do all that land has to offer.
Thinking we could buy the Space Mt ILL and a 7 am LL for BLSRS
But - presuming Tron will still be under construction - what would we rope drop?
TP suggests AO. Guess that makes sense given it’s sloooow loading time.
I was tempted to head for TL (Toxic Lung) Speedway and get that out of the way. I’m sure it gets worse over the course of the day.
If you can get AO done and out of the way, I would. It tends to be the slowest line, ever! Last May, I did TL only in the morning, and while I went for PM (which wasn’t open at RD yet), I thought I’d do AO, but it, too, wasn’t opened. So, I did a couple rides on SM before heading to AO. I was first in line for AO when it opened. By the time I was off the ride, there was already a line building (not too bad, but no longer a walk-on…although, this was when they were still doing a single party per elevator, which slowed things down).
All of this was before ETPE was a thing again, so I don’t know if the dynamic is any different now.
Well…truthfully, AO spins so fast, unlike similar rides like Dumbo and Aladdin, it is hard to take much in. It is fun, and you can still kind of look around…but I wouldn’t say you can use it as a “nice intro”! PM serves as a much better intro to the land, because it takes you around to see ALL of it.
(I’ll admit, my age was showing on AO…I got off of it feeling rather dizzy!)
Here’s the thing about PM. By all accounts, there is nothing special about it. It just goes around a big loop, touring all of TL. No exciting drops or thrills. No amazing pyrotechnics.
And yet…for me, it is actually my favorite ride in all of WDW. Why? Partly nostalgia. Partly relaxing. Partly seeing some of the “backstage” aspects of TL. Partly the cute gimmicky jokes (“Paging Mr. Morrow…Mr. Tom Morrow.”)
So, yeah. I love it. It is the ONLY reason I went to MK our May 2021 trip (which was actually a UOR trip). I went so that I could ride PM!
