On our last trip I was able to snag some 7DMT FP+ a few days prior to the trip. The problem was they were for 7:30p which we preclude us from being able to obtain 4+ FPs during the trip. The plan was to arrive at rope drop, ride 7DMT and then drop the FP+. Of course the kids were late getting out causing us to be late arriving. We were at the end of the line about 5 minutes after rope drop. The T app said estimated wait at 60min (although I thought it was already longer than that). I wasn’t willing to wait with a FP+ already in hand.
My question - is it better to suck it up and wait 60+ minutes and drop the FP+ so you can get 4+ earlier or do you forgo the 4th FP and use the 7:30p FP? I know this is really an opinion on whether the ride is worth a 60min wait, but we had 1 in our party who had never ridden so we did want to ride. In my opinion it not worth 60min or a 7:30p FP time and I would have not done either. It also helps that we are AP holders and knew we’d be back in 6 weeks.
