I’ve been doing some additional (extra credit) reading about FPP selection. But something I’m a bit concerned about, particularly for our May 2020 trip, when it comes to not just initial FPP selection, but in-park FPP availability has to do with size of the group.
We will technically be two “groups” trying to be together most of the time. First is DW, DS17, DD16, DS10, and myself. Second would be DS21 and his wife. For the most part, I figure my son and his wife will have to worry about their our FPPs. After all, it is their vacation…they can do what they want! At the same time, we’re fairly close-knit, so I expect we’ll spent a majority of the time together.
So, would it be easier to obtain FPPs in batches? Perhaps find overlapping, but not congruent, FPPs for 3 of us and then 2 of us. Or, will finding FPPs for 5 people (day-off FPPs) be easy enough?
If there is a FPP available for 3 from 2:00 to 3:00, and a FPP available for the same ride from 2:30 to 3:30, we could get two sets of FPPs and just show up in the overlapping window (2:30 to 3:00).
This seems to make the entire endeavor even MORE of a game than it already is, though. I’d rather not have to micromanage my FPPs that way!
