The park was pretty busy so we ended up wandering around. I think we were able to get a fast pass for Big Thunder with an almost immediate return. And we did the same with Haunted Mansion, it was a little funny, the line was over 40 minutes but we went to the fast pass kiosk and then immediately into the fast pass line. We did go over to Critter Country and saw some of the new River stuff from the bathrooms by the Hungry Bear bathrooms. Since the train and the River still wasn't open I was happy to at least get these glimpses. Then we decided to check in about 15 minutes early for the Blue Bayou and we waited about 20 minutes before being seated but really that was only 5 minutes past our reservation. There isn't a lot of seating in the area and after about 5 minutes a spot opened up on one of the couches (for one person) and a guy that was closer to it than me and who had been waiting longer than me motioned me over and told me to take the spot. I thought that was very gentlemanly of him. A couple of pictures from the waiting area.
