With MaxPass, you can grab FPs on your phone as soon you enter the park. Indiana Jones and Space Mountain run out of FPs first, so prioritize them. A good plan is to get an Indy FP, and hit Space Mountain, Star Tours and Nemo at opening. Once those are out of the way, you can head to Adventureland for Indy, and progress to the west side E tickets from there.What is the advised way to tour the parks, especially DL, for first timers that have 5 days to try everything? We'd like to be efficient but not at the expense at enjoying the park the way it should be.
I know WDW level of planning is not required but I am a planner by nature and thus am usually happier having some sort of plan, even if it's a general one. We will rope drop most if not all days and will be getting MaxPass. We are doing DL first on Wednesday and then DCA on Thursday.
Here are the options I have thought about for DL:
A) A DL version of my usual WDW route - Basically start in Adventureland and work clockwise
B) The reverse of A, start in Tomorrowland and work counterclockwise
C) Fantasyland first by going through the castle
D) Fantasyland first by going around the castle to the Matterhorn
E) Meet Mr. Lincoln first and then progress through the park however we feel
F) Have no plan and just wing it
I haven't really contemplated our DCA options. Probably will try to get to Radiator Springs first.
Fantasyland is a good thing to rope drop *provided* there is no EMH. If there's EMH, Fantasyland will be a mess by the time you can get in (unless you rope drop the EMH!). Since Peter Pan and Alice maintain long waits all day and don't offer FP, they're good rope drop bets.
Pay attention in the app to when your next FP will be available so that you can take advantage of that right away.
