We are going to brave the crowds during Thanksgiving week (22nd through 26th).
We will have parts of five days - getting to a park around noon or so on the first day (so no rope drop), then have to leave whichever park we're at by around 5 on the last day.
My first thought was to do MK on both the first and last "partial" days. We've identified five rides we'd like to do both of the MK days (Space Mountain, Buzz Lightyear, Haunted Mansion, 7 Dwarfs and Peter Pan) and then the rest of the rides and attractions we will split between the two days.
Now, though, I want to make sure we are not better off doing a park with less attractions that first day (about six hours worth is what we'll have available). Can we do HS without rope drop in six hours? Or maybe AK?
We are tied in to Epcot on Thanksgiving day, but other than that, we are flexible. If it matters, the kids are 11, 14 and 14, and character meets are pretty low on our list of priorities.
