Keep an eye on opening times for the rest of the month too.
We are there Tuesday the 14th and I already had to readjust plans once when it switched from 9 to 8. I’m just hoping it stays at 8 We are rope dropping Toy Story land and I don’t think I can get my kids there (happily) much earlier than 7:30.Let's hope WDW continues extending hours at HS. They just updated President's Day week, but only to move the week's one day of morning EMH to evening (which has the effect of REDUCING park hours for my family, as we leave mid-afternoon that day to fly home). Every other day during that week (with crowd estimates as high as 10/10 due to it being a school vacation week for much of the northeastern United States) HS is open only from 9am-8pm! Rise of the Resistance, my butt! For me, trying to figure out how to win the Boarding Group gamble with so few park hours, it's just Rise of the Blood Pressure!
Check out the Boarding Groups thread in the DHS subforum, but the bottom line seems that they're likely to keep running out of boarding groups within 5 minutes of park opening most days.Any opinion on how late on a weekend can I come and still get a boarding group? I want to take the ride, but we are not a rope drop family.

Unless or until they change the Boarding Group system, if you don't rope drop -- that is, if you're not present in the park, logged into DME with a fast phone, and lucky enough to be able to join a Boarding Group at park opening time -- you won't be able to ride RoTR. It's as simple (or as frustrating, depending on your outlook) as that.
Increase in operating hours again at MK for February starting on February 6 till the end of the month. All closings look like they've been extended an hour 8PM becomes 9, 9PM becomes 10.
Wasn't that around the time when they were giving away a free ticket on your birthday? The recession definitely hit the parks hard. They were doing anything they could to bring the levels back up.I think back to my first trip in February 2009. That was when there was truly an off season. The Recession had an impact too, I believe. Hardly any lines, crowds were light. It was magical. Truly the best possible experience for a first trip.
