While you’re entering all the information for your plan, like fast passes, dining breaks etc, there should be an option to enter if you have already know where you want to go for rope drop. For example, my Magic Kingdom plan always pushes 7 dwarves further down my list when I know I have to get there for rope drop or suffer a long wait time. I know there’s an option to ‘validate’ vs. ‘optimize’ but then it keeps everything as is as opposed to basing it around my rope drop.
Yes, I would love that. I prefer Optimize over Evaluate in general, but there are certain times where I’d like to pin a specific ride or two down. E.g. I like starting my day in Tomorrowland, and would love to pin Space Mountain at RD while still Optimizing everything else.
Your other option that some have offered as a hack is to make a break in the morning that serves as your proxy for SDMT. As in, don’t even schedule the ride, just create a break at RD, make it the length of what you guestimate the wait and ride are going to take.
