If you know what you want, try giving up on the optimizer and use evaluate. Look at what the optimizer suggests and then order the things the way YOU want them and evaluate. If you plug in your FPs and move those things to the spots in the plan where the timing is right and evaluate (not optimize) it should use them. You can move one thing, evaluate, try something else, evaluate again, etc. Don’t click optimize again without saving a copy of your plan or you’ll be back where you started!
It’s your trip. You can do things in any order you want. The Personalized touring plan software should be able to tell you how YOUR plan will work at the estimated crowd levels. I get the idea behind the optimizer, but sometimes you really just want to do things your own way, even if it’s less efficient. And that’s ok.
I ended up with plans that had less total wait + walk time with my own evaluated plans as compared to the optimizer suggestions. I spent more time in line for a few things, but the net time savings was better. The software is good. But if you are really detail oriented and have some specifics that you need to work around because of your family’s preferences or needs, then evaluate can be a better choice.
I’m going to be around later this afternoon, so just ask if you run into trouble.
