Well, this is a big topic of conversation lately… when is the right time to do SDD?
I just watched the YouTube video where Brian and Steve RD Toy Story Land. It says they were there on a CL4 day… that’s what 12/8/19 (when we plan to go) is predicted to be.
If you look at the published touring plans, at least one says to wait for SDD until the last hour… hoping to get a day-of fastpass, and if not, lines should be shorter that last hour as people start waiting for F!.
So, our background. Family of 4, DD6, DS10, Mom, and Dad. DD6 should be tall enough to ride RNR, but I haven’t measured her lately, and she was just shy of it, last time. We’ll be staying at the Boardwalk Villas the night before, so we just plan to walk over in the morning. Early rising should be doable (we’re up at 6CDT, normally). Park hours are 9am - 8pm. No special events planned, from what I can see.
While we expect to be in the park before RD (leave BW around 8?), I don’t have any aspirations to be at the very front of the mob as they run toward TSL. Is there a mob? Will we be trampled if we even try to go that way? If we expect to be middle-of-the-pack, how unhappy will we be?
I’ve made a couple of plans, trying to estimate what it’ll be like to either RD SDD or wait until end-of-the-evening. In either case, I’ve had to fudge the numbers a bit… because I expect our wait to be slightly shorter than posted times. Is that reasonable?
What do you smarties think of these plans? We haven’t done HS since 2014, so I’m feeling a bit more lost there than the other parks.
Second question that I’m going to tack on here, if anyone’s made it this far… What’s Jedi Training sign-up look like these days? Where do we go? Can we do it before park opening? If not, can we do it after TSL and still get reasonable time slots?
ETA: This is 60+1 for us, so I REALLY doubt we’ll get SDD FPs.
