I’m staying onsite at AoA from July 6-13. My FP+ window opens next month and I’m researching on what my park touring plans will be so I’m ready to get FP+ at 7am when it opens in May. However, I keep on thinking that getting a FP+ at a decent time for the extremely popular rides (FOP, 7DMT/SDD/Frozen at Epcot) are very slim…meaning I likely won’t get FP’s for these rides with a 10-11am window, likely it would be much later in the day/evening (if at all). That means it negatively impacts my ability to get additional FP’s once I get thru the 3 allotted per day.
I’m thinking that if I can get a decent hour for these FP’s, then great. If not, I’m thinking that I focus on getting FP’s for other rides with good return times, and try to Rope Drop the most popular rides each day we visit the park.
Does this make sense? I hear that RD at HS for SDD is just complete insanity, and we are adults/late teenagers, so we just might skip that completely and focus on TSM/RnRC/ToT.
Or should I just take whatever FP’s I can get for these most popular rides and try to modify them using the Disney App up to/when in the park.
I’ve been to WDW 4 times before, but this is my first visit using the FP+ system, as well as the addition of the new rides that are causing everyone to lose their marbles during RD! (FOP, SDD, 7DMT, Frozen).
I’ll continue reading up on this, but wanted to ask the question to the experts here at the TouringPlans Forum.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
