I’m sorry if this question has already been asked somewhere. But our trip to WDW is next week and I’ve been on a hiatus from the forum for a while now! I see that the Boarding Group join times for ROTR are at 7am and 1pm. However, park doesn’t open until 9am. I planned on being there an hour before anyway, but that’s obviously well past the first BG time. How far away can you be to get a BG? We’re staying off-site, about 20 min. drive. I don’t want to risk not getting a BG bc of distance. Or is it that you just have to have a ticket and reservation for that day?
Secondly, I haven’t seen any definitive (I use this term loosely) times that they open up the parking lots to people that are driving into the World. Is arriving one hour before park opening enough time? Hour and a half? Or is that too early? We’re doing all 4 parks. And I know there’s no “rule” about that, just want to know your personal experiences. Thanks!
