OK. This is our second family trip to WDW with myself, DH, DS13, DD10. We have 8 park days (8/23-8/30), no hoppers, and 2 full days planned in MK.
Today is my 60 day FP+ day and I am feeling pretty secure in my decisions for every day EXCEPT Day 1 in MK. There are a few rides that we did not get to ride the last time we went so I want to be sure to do those, however, there are also going to be rides that we definitely want to do again.
Our Must Dos that we have never ridden before: ETWB, PPF, IASW, Winnie the Pooh, BTM, Laugh Floor, Peoplemover. Also Swiss FT and Tiki Room but I assume these will not require a FP+.
Do agains are Splash, Space, SDMT, JC, POTC, HM, Buzz.
For MK Day 2 I have FP+ for SDMT, Splash, and Space. These are all in the def do again category. Day 2 has EMM and MNSSHP, we are not using either of these.
For MK Day 1 I have ETWB, PPF, and HM. We are rope dropping Day 1 so expect to get right on to some rides between 9-10 am without FP+.
On both days I plan to obtain 4th and beyond FP+ by using @OBNurseNH’s recent instructional post (modify modify modify!).
Thank you in advance to anyone willing to help me sort this out!
Without knowing the details of your plan, it looks like you have made good FP selections. I would probably RD BTM and JC and then head to Fantasy land as you can get additional FPPs for IASW, WTP, Laugh Floor pretty easily in my experience. That covers everything on your list.
Day 1 I would rope drop PPF, Winnie and do fantasyland and Buzz, FPP for SDMT, ETWB, and Splash
Day 2 rope drop Space, Buzz, FPP BTMR, and your 2 favourite rides, or maybe POTC. You should be able to pick up an extra FPP for IASW and HM. I like to do lots of short rides in the first hour, mainly saving my FPP for the longer stuff like Splash or BTMR. Hope you work it all out
I still have to adjust my TPs according to the FP+ that I just reserved for each day. I am doing that next. Maybe this step would help with my decision making. I am probably just getting ahead of myself which is why I’m freaking out
Are there better areas of the park for 4th+ FP touring? What about no FP touring? We’re splitting a party day morning/afternoon at MK with an afternoon/evening at DHS and trying to figure out how to strategize our FP’s.
We’ll be one day behind you at MK! 8/24 and 8/29! I book our fastpasses tomorrow morning and MK is the one I’ve debated the most. I do think you have picked some good fastpasses. Definitely try to rope drop BTMRR and JC as their lines tend to fill up quickly.
