Hi all… new to the forum here and couldn’t manage to figure out the search criteria to find the answers to a couple of questions I have regarding Touringplans.
Fastpasses can basically be used from 15 minutes before the arrival time until 15 minutes after the end time. so a 10 AM fastpass is valid from 9:45 AM until 11:15 AM. I think I already know the answer to this, but I guess there’s no way to get touringplans to account for this full window of time in the optimize or evaluate functions?
I am an early riser and arrive at the park about 30 minutes early, and I use the early EMH whenever available. My touringplan inevitably has me arriving to my first ride a good bit later than I actually imagine I’ll be there. For instance, on my Epcot day, I have Soaring slated first, and touring plans doesn’t have my arriving until around 8:20. Now, I’m quite sure I know the literal reason… the plan has me at the front gate at 8AM, and I set my walking speed to very relaxed. The only problem with that is that this isn’t really the reality for the first ride of the day. I’ll be there early and in the park as soon as they let me in, and we won’t dilly-dally getting to the first ride. any suggestions?
Edit: I stand corrected… 5 minutes before to 15 minutes after for the Fastpasses. Good to know!
