Hi all, first post to these forums but I have been a TP user for about 3 or 4 years and plan all my WDW trips using it.
On September 23rd (Wednesday) I have 2 plans I am going back and forth about.
The first one was my original plan, and had us eating breakfast in our room (Very typical for us each morning at WDW; either some food we bring or getting food from our resort’s food establishment), arriving at MK at the normal early time to be there for the rope-drop, and going about our planned day. Finishing nicely at 5pm, having an hour of free time/wiggle room, then eating at the Crystal Palace around 6:30.
Then I got it in my head; “How cool would it be to have breakfast reservations at 8am in Be Our Guest or Cinderella’s Palace, woof down our grub, and be standing in line for Space Mountain/Mine Train/etc before those dopes on the outside even got past the Mickey and Walt statue?”
So I copied my original plan for that day, added in a breakfast (Though, I don’t have reservations yet, which I know may be near impossible), and moved things around to accommodate our relaxed, slow walking pace, and to reduce walking rather than waiting. Somehow, this gave us MORE free-time before dinner (But I had to eliminate 2 snack stops I had planned for a Dole Whip and some kind of chicken and waffle snack I recently learned about.
What is everyone’s experience with getting in the park an hour early for breakfast? I(s it worth it? Frankly I could care less about where/what we eat. I am just a typical guy who will pay extra/burn a DDP credit to get in line sooner and avoid waiting in line
