Good questions. It’s our first WDW trip and our check out morning after 8 days. Staying WL. Will be somewhat hectic that morning because the more I think about it I will likely pack up all the bags and check out hotel around 8am before we head to breakfast or magic kingdom. My FPP right now are 7D 9:20, BTMR 10:20, and Splash 11:20. All are pretty good and I’m not inclined to give them up. Even if I wanted to swap for PP, PP is only showing late night availability for FPP. I am not betting same day FPP for PP will be available around noon. So here are my reasonable options, all with pros/cons, assuming we pack-up, drop bags at bell-hop and checkout by 8am. FYI, MK CL is 9 for Sat 2/2 the day in question.
Keep Chef Mickey’s at 8:10, enjoy somewhat leisurely breakfast and head to MK arriving 9:30-9:45 - hit all three current FPP with maybe a extra ride or two sprinkled in, ride PP close to noon with 60-90minute waits
Keep Chef Mickey’s at 8:10, rush through breakfast to try to get to MK by 9:15ish, ride PP first with 30-45minute waits, then hit three FPP hoping I don’t miss any.
Skip Chef Mickey’s, a quick QS or grab and go breakfast and head earlier to MK by 9ish, ride PP first then hit FPP and a couple of more rides finishing around noon.
Option 3 is likeliest option to hit PP and all three FPP minimizing waits but I have to give up Chef Mickey’s.
I’m leaning towards option 3 because I do think my boys - 5 and7 - will like PP ride (they love the movie). Not as sure they will be into the characters but I don’t know. We do have several other character meals planned beforehand so I should have a good idea by that day - Akershus, Ohana, Artist Point, Cinderella all scheduled.
We have a 2pm at Sanaa booked before we head to the airport. The more I think about the more likely I will cancel as I’m not sure it’s worth the hassle traveling over to AKL on our last day as amazing as AKL lodge might be. I could try and swap Sanaa for a Chef Mickey’s lunch but currently no availability at that time. A relaxing lunch and final swim at WL sounds nice too.
