Basics of our trip: October 7-14th. Planning only Tuesday at HS but will have a park hopper if we need to return later. Myself, DH, DS (8) and DD (2) and we are on the dining plan.
While I understand a lot of people don't necessarily think this park is a full day park, I've had trouble fitting everything into our plan. We are thrill ride lovers, DH and DS are Star Wars fans, and DD is a princess fan, so basically, we're trying to do almost everything. I've actually considered splitting up some that day so the boys can do Star Wars Launch while DD and I do Little Mermaid, Frozen, etc.
DS (8) is going to want to do Jedi Training. Original plans (before I learned about Jedi) was to get a FPP for Rock N Roller Coaster and do TSMM at rope drop. Here's my questions:
1) Will the line at TSMM be crazy if we head straight for Jedi at rope drop and THEN go to TSMM?
2) I had planned on doing H&V for dinner and trying to get the Fantasmic package. Is that package really worth it or would we be better off to switch to pre-park opening breakfast and try to register first (I think I read that you can do that)? I'm not set on either one. We've eaten there before and thought the food was ok. DD kind of like Doc McStuffins, but not a huge Disney fan. She is a huge Minnie fan, but we will be seeing her elsewhere as well.
Any other suggestions for making this work without having a terrible line for TSMM later? We've been twice since TSMM opened and have never gotten to ride because the line was always crazy.
And a side question - I've read somewhere that there's a certain sign-up line to get in so that they fight Darth. If that's true, anyone know which line that is?
Edited to add: Our current park days are tentatively laid out as follows:
Saturday afternoon - Epcot - Future World
Sunday - AK (breakfast at Tusker House)
Monday - MK (leave early due to Halloween party) (dinner at BOG)
Tuesday - HS (dinner/breakfast in question above, tentatively plan dinner w Fantasmic Package for H&V)
Wednesday - Epcot (WS), dinner at Teppan Edo followed by Wishes at MK
Thursday - MK for a little over 1/2 day, breakfast at BOG, dinner at Whispering Canyon
Friday - breakfast at Askherhus (sp?), dinner at Ohana.....haven't decided what to do in between yet.
