I second this! I was at the GF in the beginning of May and we arrived at the bus stop for Epcot, approximately 90 mins before park opening. We were second in line for a turnstile (tap in). Even after a bathroom stop for my 4 year old, we were able to ride FEA twice (our kids are too young for TT and Soarn’) and we still had 15-20 mins left before official park opening.
For AK we didn’t get the first bus, but still arrived slightly before opening. Since our kids were also too young for FoP, we went straight for Safari and waited only 20 mins. By the time we were off the ride, the rope drop crowd arrived and the wait went up to 45 mins.
For MK we left the GF about 45-60 mins before opening via the new walkway. We are fairly quick walkers and it took about 15 mins (hotel to tap in). We found ourselves behind the rope drop crowd but we weren’t heading to any of the mountains. Our quest was to ride the People Mover which didn’t open until 8:00am, so we rode Buzz Light Year Space Ranger instead, which was a walk-on and opened at 7:40-7:45. We then walked on the PM followed by CoP. We had all three done by 8:30-8:40.
We did not rope drop HS instead got there for my Boarding Group for RoftR at 1:00. (Big thank you to my wife for letting me do this solo!) we found that crowds and waits at HS went down after 4:00. We rode MMRR twice around 5:30 for a 20 minute wait each time. And then got in line for Slinky Dog at 7:00 (park closed at 8:00). The wait was posted at 50 mins but was closer to 35min. We did rider swap for my 4 year old. Unfortunately, she only rode once as she was not a fan…. I was on and off the ride 10 mins after my wife and daughter were off.
One note on the buses, make sure to get there early. I’m fairly certain they are still capacity restricted. I would say they allow roughly 9 groups on them, and some sections only seat 2-3 people.
