Heading to WDW in mid-November, wondering if my personalized touring plans don’t account for arriving early for RD. All plans were built with a relaxed walking pace. We may walk faster than relaxed, but I wanted to build in a general level of conservatism. If I change the walking speed to average, it reduces walking time by about 20%. But I’m mostly concerned about the wait times TP is coming up with. Also, I’ve never done EMH before. I’ve generally avoided EMH parks, because I don’t have a park hopper, but I’ve read with lowish crowds, they are worth a try. (Anyway, no going back on them now, I’ve booked my FP+s and I’m locked in!) Here are details on times I’m seeing:
EP (Thurs, Nov 14, CL 3, 8/9a-9p) Arriving at IG entrance on an EMH morning, planning to get there at 7:45, TP says I’ll get to Frozen at 8:21, waiting 9 minutes, riding for 5, and then a 25 min to walk to Soarin, arriving at Soarin at 9:00. So, the entire EMH will boil down to a single attraction?! Seems like we should be able to get more done in that first hour.
AK (Mon, Nov 18, CL 4, 8/9a-9p) Another 7:45 arrival for morning EMH. TP says I’ll get to Navi at 8:13, wait 20 minutes, ride for 5, walk 17 to Dinosaur, arriving at 8:55. Again, an entire EMH for 1 extra attraction?! I was at AK in April 2018, did RD on a non-EMH and we walked right on to NRJ and were off of it by 8:20, so I’m puzzled about a 20 minute wait RDing on an EMH morning.
HS (Tues, Nov 19, CL 6, 9a-9p) Maybe an 8:30 arrival for a regular, non-EMH morning. TP says I’ll get to TSMM at 9:12 and be facing a 70 minute wait?! In April 2018, we RD’d HS and went straight to TSMM, and I think we waited 20-30 minutes… this was when FP+ wasn’t available for the ride due to construction and they were down to a single track! And now with SWGE open (and SDD, and triple capacity due to TSMM tracks, I figured the TSMM RD waits would be much less than I’m seeing.
I would love some input/thoughts! I’m sure I’m over thinking this… the reality is the wait will be what it will be. But obviously as a member of this community, I have a strong desire to know to the minute what my day will look like!!!
