I’m also trying to work out how long before opening I need to arrive on each of my park days so thanks for the useful information so far. Hope you don’t mind me asking my own similar questions here.
It sounds like as a general rule 30 minutes before opening is good as long as you don’t want to RD one of the major rides SDD, Soarin etc.
Would this still apply where there is a MEMH starting from 8am? So I want to aim to get to parks around 7.30 on these days?
Do buses start earlier on MEMH days are would they still start around 6:45 (having left depos about 6.30)?
For info my plans are below, we are staying at POR:
3rd May CL6 MK MEMH 8am opening: 1st ride Winnie the Pooh: Plan to arrive at the park 7.30am
5th May CL6 EP 9am opening: RD Soarin: Plan to arrive at park at 8.15
6th May CL4 AK MEMH 8am opening: RD Navi, plan to arrive at park 7.30am
8th May CL4 MK 9am opening, PPO BOG 8am: Plan to arrive at park around 7.30 to be let in at 7:45
9th May CL5 HS 9am opening, RD ToT (FP for SDD) Plan to arrive at park at 8.30am
12th May CL6 HS MEMH 8am opening, RD RNR (ASS FP) plan to arrive at park 7.30am
15th May CL4 AK 9am opening, RD EE: plan to arrive at park at 8.30am
16th May CL4 MK 9am opening, PPO BOG 8am: Plan to arrive at park around 7.30 to be let in at 7:45
Please let me know if any of this is wildly out in terms of suitable arrival times
Thanks in advance B
