We have five day park hopper tickets. We only have four and a half days to spend in the parks. Our plan initially was to spend two days at MK, one day at EP, 1/2 day at AK and a 1/2 day at HS. We were going to use our last partial day as a slush day to go back and catch anything we really wanted to do again or missed the first time around.
With all of the additions to AK over the past few months, I’m wondering if we should now spend a whole day there and use our last partial day to visit HS. DD3 is terrified of anything Star Wars and most of our party are not thrill seekers, so I don’t anticipate that there will be a ton we want to do at HS outside of TSSM, a few shows, and character meet and greets.
I can only think of two hitches to the new plan. We will be at AK June 19, so I am concerned about the crowd levels due to Pandora. We are on property, so we plan to take advantage of 7:00 AM EMH. Everything seems to say that EMH will cause higher crowd levels in the afternoon. Also, DD3 loves Minnie, so I have an ADR for Hollywood and Vine on the 19th. I also have one for Tusker House. If we ditch out on H&V, we miss out on Minnie, although I know there are other places we can see her.
I guess all of this leads to two questions. Should we spend a whole day in AK or plan to park hop in the afternoon? Has anyone done Tusker and H&V? I know the food at H&V is subpar, but we aren’t foodies. DH is a picky eater and I don’t know how the food at Tusker House will go down with him. It’s more about getting the character interaction for DD. Is the character interaction better at one than the other?
