What is the current recommendation for arrival before rope drop?

We will be there December 11-15. We will rope drop AK on 12/12/17 (Tuesday) with CL 2 (no EMH), MK 12/13/17, CL 5 (+evening EMH), Epcot 12/14/17, CL 5 with 8 AM EMH, and MK 12/15/17 with morning EMH at 7 am (we will also be going to party that night).

We were not able to score a FOP FP so having a good start to AK is very important for us on Tuesday.

Also, we will be staying at Bay Lake Tower. I know that we can walk to MK, but how long should I allot for travel to each of the parks from there?

Thank you!!
