I know the ideal is to try to get to the parks an hour+ before opening, and stake out firework- and parade-viewing spots way ahead of time. But I’m traveling with kids who have a hard time with being stuck in a crowd or waiting for a really long time. And teens who hate waking up early. We’re okay with not having an ideal view if it means we don’t have a meltdown, and we have FPP for a lot of the things people get there an hour early to try to RD. (We have FoP, SDD, 7DMT, TT and Frozen on different days, and PPF.)
We do have one RD day planned per park. Can anyone help me get an idea of what would be an okay time to arrive if we plan to RD: BTMRR, Soarin, NRJ, and ToT/Jedi sign-up?
An okay time to show up for HEA and not be right in the center of the crowd? To watch the parade from near Frontierland?
Any guesstimate would be helpful. We’re going in a few days and haven’t been there since 2011.
