Finally, for MK, I recommend doing a seperate TP for each of the lands (maybe cluster some of them, frontierland with adventureland or liberty square with fantasyland) ). This way you can optimize the land without creating a zig zag.
That’s a great idea. Wish I’d thought of it a month and a half ago, when I first found this place
The advice that I’ve read, which I applied to my own plans for November, is that Tomorrowland is pretty easy to ride standby from 900-1000 or so, so if you care about those attractions you can do a lot of stuff in a short amount of time. And if you don’t care about this area, knock out Space Mountain and move on.
Don’t forget that you can use the train to move between lands too. One of the paths I explored was hitting Tomorrowland early, moving counterclockwise into Fantasyland for 7DMT, Barnstormer and Ariel, then catching the train all the way around to Frontierland for Splash and Big Thunder, then walking down into Adventureland. (We’re skipping Peter Pan, Haunted Mansion, Philharmagic, Small World)
Re: FP+ priority, our FP+ window opened at the start of September and even at the very beginning we were unable to get our “ideal” spot for 7DMT. I’m still tweaking the plan here and there and it’s been relatively easy to switch up my times for Splash Mountain, Big Thunder, Pirates, etc, but 7DMT hasn’t had any open spots that I’ve seen. You might want to put together multiple plans, one with 7DMT in the morning, afternoon, and evening. Schedule that pass first and then pick the rest of them accordingly. That way you’re not scrambling to adjust your TP at the last minute when you don’t get your ideal pick.
I don’t know what sort of health conditions your wife has, but Disney has a really nice disability program that you might want to look into. It basically lets you “check in” for a ride and then come back at a designated time, depending on the current standby wait time. This doesn’t necessarily let you skip any lines, but it could make the trip less exhausting for her by allowing you to spend the waiting time in the shade or off your feet somewhere.
