Efficiency of rider switch for FOP

Hello Liners! My family plans to use rider switch on FOP next week. In your opinion, will it be more time efficient to try to be at the front of the pack at park opening or ride using ILL later in the day?
I just think rider switch will take a decent amount of waiting time so I wasn’t sure if wasting valuable touring time at park opening was the best way to go but the touring plan keeps putting FOP as our first step at AK.

I would definitely say that the ILL would save time over rope drop for sure. I guess it just depends on if you want to pay. The Rider Swap portion will take the same amount of time either way so I don’t think that matters.
