Oh heavens no. One only need look at the lapidary expressions of TRVTH of which I’m incapable to see how threadbare my knowledge is.
I read Trader Sams opens at 3:00 now. Anyone know for sure when it opens?
It was 4:00 last time I was there, in early December. But hours do change based on expected crowds and season. The WDW site has, in my experience (see caveat above), always had the correct hours, so go by that.
As for how easy or hard it is to get into Trader Sam’s: I’ve been dozens of times. Most of those right when it opened at 4:00. Only in the first week that it opened did I need to line up before 3:30, and I’ve never not been able to get in in the first wave. One doesn’t even need to line up any longer; a CM shows up at 3:30 to take names, party sizes, and cell numbers for text message callbacks, and it’s been that way for at least a year. There was a line back in December, but that was actually a line to get one of the Xmas tiki mugs. Now, if one goes in the evening, there can be a wait of an hour or more. But you weren’t asking about going in the evening.
