…consider using FP+ at one of the kiosks?
Here’s the scenario:
You’re in the parks. You’ve used all of your advance Fastpasses. Now if you want a Fastpass, you have to walk over to a kiosk to make a reservation.
Suppose that process takes 8 minutes (three to walk, 2 to make the reservation, 3 to walk back to wherever you were going).
How long does a wait in line have to be for you to consider this 8-minute detour worthwhile?
Keep in mind that if you’re using Fastpass+ at an attraction with a 20-minute standby wait, you’re likely to wait 3-5 minutes to use the Fastpass+ anyway, so you’re saving 15-17 minutes, not all 20.
I’ll use this information to set a minimum standby wait threshold in the Optimizer. If a standby wait is under this threshold, the Optimizer won’t consider it a candidate for Fastpass+.
My own number: 20 minutes.
