Hello. I am only at the parks for 3 whole days plus a few hours on the final day. I am doing parkhoppers so that I can squeeze in all four parks.
My FP reservations were on Tuesday. The way I have been planning what parks to do what days resulted in Epcot being the one I had to sacrifice not getting FPs for. I’m starting to think this was a mistake. I’m very suspicious of TouringPlans wait time accuracy considering when I’m going (Dec 18-21).
My plan to do all the tier 1s in Epcot I want (FEA, TT, and Soarin) was to split EP in two days being the first park I visit that day.
Considering where the attractions I want to do are located and considering how soon I want to get to my afternoon park. Here is the plan I am hoping for regarding Epcot with the intended goal of being at RD.
Day 1 - Be out by 10:30am (I have a FP at MK that expires at 11:45am)
Day 2 - Be out by 2-2:30pm. All the free time we have following the completion of the four attractions will be spent in WS before we head to our next park.
Now here’s the thing regarding RD: little guarantee will make it to rope drop on Day 1 due to arriving to Orlando late the night before. We’ll be lucky to actually be at the gate by 9am. Day 2 will be better RD wise.
Now if things don’t work out regarding RD on those two days, I can still rearrange my schedule to RD to Epcot any day I’m there actually. But I hope I don’t have to do 3 days straight of RD though.
I would be happy to hear your thoughts on this and any advice. Thanks.
