First time at WDW - For character meet and greets: is it possible for one parent to wait in line and have the other join in later with the kids? Or should everyone stay together. I don’t think my kids can wait 80min in line without going crazy! What about for rides like TT?
This is kind of hot button issue. You’ll have some that say it’s fine and some that say it’s not and is rude. I don’t particularly have an opinion but I will say places with indoor queues are going to be a lot more difficult to do this. Things like TT with interactive pieces will def. have a point of no return where everyone will need to be with you.
Never done this however there are other forum discussions that would suggest it’s frowned upon.
I would definitely agree that it is frowned upon, and in some cases, very difficult to do. I would fear that if someone was having a really bad day, if I attempted to walk through a lengthy line with my children to join someone up front, I may cause a riot.
It will absolutely get you some rude stares and likely some unkind words lol
Good thing I asked! Thanks everyone. Fingers crossed for when my FP day opens up!
Unless it’s an outdoor line (like Merida, Alice, etc.) where it’s easy to slide next to your group, I wouldn’t plan for it. Some people might not physically let you pass, and it could escalate into something you don’t need on a magical vacation.
I’ve got three young and crazy active boys who are pains in long lines. It’s tough both physically and mentally. But plan ahead with things in a bag to keep them occupied (snacks, games, toys, drink) and make sure they use the bathroom before getting in a line. Let them sit on the floor. There are always exceptions, but I would definitely not plan for pushing into a line as a touring plan.
Nope - Don’t want to start any fights. Must remember that I’m not the only one with kids at WDW. LOL!
Remember too that with a good touring plan you should never really find yourself in an 80 minute queue.
He is wise that @Outer1.
@lbevilac, We have been many times in the last few years, during high crowd levels and never have waited anywhere close to 80 minutes. I can remember only one ride we waited about 40 minutes for, but that was a special occasion since we decided to sleep in and were 2 hours late getting to the park. Make good TPs, be at the parks early, and you should not have long waits at all.
Oh stop! No you can keep going lol
