AK report (Wed 15 Jan 2020)
Epcot report (17 Jan 2020)

We rope dropped both days (PO was 0900). For Sunday (Marathon day) TP predicted CL of 2 (Actual: 4). Mostly because of this site (and others I suppose) we basically finished all the park’s major attractions in one day. Grabbing early FPs and then grabbing Same Day Fastpasses and modifying to get better times was a most excellent touring strategy. We rarely waited in standby and other than my son wanting to do Space the second day in standby (35 total min including exiting) the next longest waits were 10-15 minutes.

The second day was kind of just finishing up things we hadn’t done yet (Laugh Floor, Hall of Presidents, Jungle Cruise) and redoing kid’s favorites (Space Mt, BTMR, and 7DMT, Magic Carpets, Mad Tea Party, Buzz Lightyear). After a more leisurely pace, we left before 5 PM.

Looks like a great trip! Thanks for all the details, very helpful

I do hope it helps. That is mostly my intent. Also I wanted to document for ourselves if we are able to ever go back. We did all of the parks, so in the next couple days I’ll try to give trip reports for those as well.
