Trip coming up in July, CL 4/5 day for HS, 9 am opening. We have a PPO 8:15 at H&V and plan to sign up for JTA beforehand. From what I’ve read, the regular crowd can also come in before park opening (not sure at what time, however). Does the rope drop and rides start before official opening as well (like in AK?).
My main question is this–assuming I get to H&V by 8 (signing up for JTA around 7:45) and am done by 8:45 (and, is that realistic in any event? it worked well for Garden Grill last year), what can I do if I have to be at Jedi Training by 9:10? Could I sneak in an Alien Swirling Saucers? Star Tours? Do most rides start running before official opening? I have FPP for SDD, TOT and RNR.
