We have been to Disney for Christmas many times and know it will be hectic. In the past, we used the advice in the Unofficial Guide to help us through the parks, but I thought I’d try out the touring plans here and see what we got.
My question is this. I optimized our plans, and we are surprised to see advice is different than what we have always followed per the book. For example, on Christmas Day, it recommends at rope drop (we will use the Extra Magic Hours and historically arrive maybe 1.5 hrs before the park opens), it has us going on Navi River, then looping Everest twice, and not doing FOP until 3pm (I plan to try to get a fastpass for FOP then as the predicted line was crazy at 148 mins), but it seems odd to me to not go straight on to FOP at rope drop.
Can anyone confirm that this proposed strategy from TP is the best strategy?
