I’d never seen this idea before so I thought I’d mention it here. It started with something said by the guy at the entrance to the Kraka-whatever ride.
It is based on the idea that you can only be virtually waiting on one ride at a time. BUT you can have more than one ride reservation. So, you rope-drop EA at VB and go first to the most popular ride. Ride it a few times until your given wait time is 10-15 minutes. Then go to the next most popular ride. If it says ride now, then do it until you get a time. Make sure your first ride says, “Ride Anytime”, before you get in a virtual line for the second ride. But you can ride anything that is “Ride Now” even if you are virtually ‘in line’ for something else. Repeat that with different rides so you have a collection of ride reservations. Go back to your favorite ride and ride it again and then tap into the virtual line again there. By that time, the wait time will probably be an obnoxious 60+ minute wait. BUT, you haven’t taken a break yet, or eaten and you still have ride reservations to use.
Another thing we noticed. It happens often when a family taps in at basically the same time, that some people get a wait time 5 minutes longer than others. We used to wait until everyone’s said “Ride Now”, but our last trip we learned that 5 minutes wait was basically treated as zero wait.
