We will be at HS February 3rd, a CL 3 day. It is highly important to my sons, ages 10, 7 & 4, to participate in JTA. I have been reading all of the forum posts, and I am getting some conflicting information and want to make sure I have this straight.
It seems to me that even on a CL 3 day, I need to be at the park no less than 30 minutes before opening. At RD, I take the boys straight to the sign up area. However, some information I am reading says that there are CM’s out front to do sign up. Other information says getting an 8:00 ADR at H&V is better than waiting in line. Still other information does the H&V ADR is a bad idea. Can someone tell me what is currently the best procedure to ensure a JTA time slot? I think this is more stressful than figuring out FPP!
Speaking of which, how early can I make my first FPP reservation, taking into account JTA sign up time? Thanks so much!
