This question assumes Fantasmic is back by our touring dates in mid-October. Assuming it is, would this be doable?
We plan to be in DCA for a non early entry Saturday, one expected to be very PACKED. However, we will have park hoppers with a MM entry that we won't have used, and b/c our evenings are restricted by all the Halloween parties projected for our stay, we will have to visit Fantasmic on a day when we are touring DCA in the AM. Is there any sense in having a runner grab a Fantasmic FP during the MM portion of DLR, while the rest of the party exits the park and gets in Rope Drop line at DCA, our intended morning park? Or, does the FP system only go live at park opening?
If the latter, what would be our best strategy to get Fantasmic tickets, knowing it's been offline for so long? On a packed day, what time have Fantasmic tickets run out in the past? We can't be in the FP line for RSR, and in line for Soaring and Toy Story AND/ALSO be in DLR. Would it be ridiculous if one runner waited in the Fantasmic FP line at 7AM for one hour, just to grab FP's right at 8am, and then spring over to DCA to meet up with the rest of the party, wherever they are in the park?
Our evening touring days at DLR are slim, due to the Halloween parties, which we don't particularly want to pay for, b/c I think they will be wasted on our young kids. Due to crowd level predictions, and EMH days at DCA, our morning touring is pretty set.
