When we go this coming March, we have two days at Animal Kingdom. I’d like to get FOP FP for both days. When I look at the Na’vi wait times, though, I die a little inside.
Because we have two days, I’m not worried about getting all of the other rides done that I’d like. So, I was thinking that we could pick up a 9:00 FP for something good (probably KS), and a 10:30/11:00 for FOP. Then, I’d pick up a tier 2 that I could modify after we rode the first ride at 9. I’d want to pick something I could easily modify to an early time - like 9:30 to 10:30. Then, I’d want something that’s fairly easy to get to, to tap and run. Once we’ve gotten through those 3, I’d try for a Navi FP at the drop times.
Any suggestions what that third FP should be?
What if I don’t modify earlier… I want KS at 9. Something at 10. FoP at 11. What’s that something?
Someone will definitely correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t think you can modify that 3rd tier 2 fastpass for a time that overlaps your FOP FP. You will have to wait until you tap into FOP, then try to mod down.
I think that was the plan…ride the 9:00 ride, and have an 10:30 FOP FP. Then, after you tap into the 9:00 ride, modify the third FP to a 9:20/9:30 timeslot so that it doesn’t interfere with the FOP FP. That way, three FPs are done by 10:30/11:00.
Overall it seems like a reasonable plan IF you manage a FOP for around that time frame. If the FOP FP is later than 11:00, though, you can just book a 10:00 from the start.
@ryan1 - you’re exactly right. That would be the plan. Like you say, IF I can get a 10:30ish FP.
Based on suggestions you’ve all had, I tried to set up a plan to RD Navi, then do FoP at 9, with a FP. (8 am opening).
It says it’s a 35 minute wait for Navi, IF we get there at 8:13. Assuming we can get there earlier than that, I’m sure it’ll be shorter.
Then, with a FP, it says to expect a 45 minute wait at FoP. That seems excessively long. Are my expectations way off, here?
Yeah… I’m supposed to be working… this is way more interesting to play with, though.
If you really want to do Na’vi, do it as a rope drop on one of the two days. Not sure it is worth a fast pass. I skipped Na’vi river on my last trip and I don’t feel like I really missed out on too much, but feel free to tell me that I’m wrong.
Also, if you are going on two days, you might consider checking out Pandora in the evening one day.
My AK days are 60+3 and 60+4. We’ll be there in the morning on 60+3, and right now (before the 6 month mark), that one is planned as EMH.
Aftere all the feedback, I think I’ll try to RD Na’vi and get a FP for FOP right away in the morning of 60+3.
Then I’ll try to get a FP for FOP in the evening of 60+4, and if we’re lucky we can always do Na’vi at the end of that day, too.
I’m just so nervous about the spring break crowds!
With your AK days not being past +5 and it being spring break, I’d actually plan to RD FOP and get the prebooked FPP for NR. You have a much better chance of getting a earlier NRJ FPP. Then you can do your first three in the morning and be ready for drop times to get a second ride on FOP.
Of course if the earlier FOP is available, take it, but the above to me seems like a more reliable scenario,
