Our family is comprised of early risers. Hitting rope drop, even on an EMH morning, isn’t a big deal for us.
With that in mind, I am wondering if Hochberg’s strategy of booking your FP+s as early as possible in the day to get to your rolling FP as soon as possible is the best way to go, especially during a busy time of year like Xmas.
Seems like spending your FPs early in the day when there isn’t much of a line anyway is a waste. And by the time you get to your ability to book your rolling fourth FP, I wonder if there will be nothing but crap offered up (or good stuff offered at crap times) the rest of the day, especially when crowd levels are high.
If you are committed to rope drop, especially on an EMH morning, would it not make more sense to walk standby onto your desired attractions in the morning, and book your three advance passes for wherever you will be in the afternoon/evening when crowd levels are much higher?
Or am I missing something?
