So, I’m trying to make personalized touring plans for our (hopeful) upcoming March trip. I thought I’d gotten experienced at it - optimizing, moving fastpasses around, moving meals and breaks around, evaluating until I’m happy. Our trips have been very smooth in the past. We’ve typically gotten through the plans with maybe just a modification or two.
One thing I’ve always struggled with, though, is that if you get there early, the first-ride wait time is bogus. Ok, I just made it a fastpass. That seemed to work ok for my estimating. Now though? Ugh. I have no idea how to indicate that we’ll be there early and I expect we’ll be able to get through 7DMT, for example, before park open.
Does anyone have advice on this? I’m thinking about putting in a 1-minute restaurant stop at the closest place to what we want to ride. But is that a reasonable workaround? Good expectation to just say that we’ll do one high-priority ride in that early hour? Like, if we get to MK at 8 AM for a 9AM opening, can I expect to finish 7DMT in that first hour, and that’s it? We’ve never actually ridden it standby - always with a FP.
For some of the other parks, I’m just leaving the high-priority ride in, and hoping we can do it multiple times. There isn’t anything at MK that we want to do that with, though.
