Somewhat mixed but ultimately successful DHS day today. Failed to get a Rise BG at 7, but went anyway, getting to the parking booths about 8:25 to a big back-up, did not get into the park until about 8:55. Very busy immediately, did three attractions and left at 10:30. Got BG 167, a back up group, at the 1:00 drop, from home. Went back to the park about 5:30, much less busy then, two more runs on Toy Story Mania, BG 167 for Rise was called at 6:24. Got to Rise about 6:45, walked right through the empty queue, got a clean ride with not that many people around. Also then able to do the Runaway Railway with a very short wait, then Rock and Roller with about a 20 minute wait before the 8:00 close. I think they must have gotten through all the groups they gave out on RIse today.

What exactly were you mixed about? Seems like a productive day especially getting 3 attractions in before 10:30 and taking advantage of short lines at night. Glad you got a group!
 
I'll finally be back in Disney in a little over a month... last time I was there was the opening week of this ride! I liked it better when I could just wake up super early to ensure I got on, but hopefully the force will be with me (and my iPhone).

I've been practicing a bit from home this week, and one thing I'm considering is calling Disney to remove the people from my Family & Friends list that won't be on this trip with me. One of them will never go to Disney again, but the other two are my sister and her son which I would want to add back afterwards. Can anyone share how much trouble it is to get people removed... and is it a pain to add some back afterwards?

You shouldn't have to call Disney to remove people. If they have their own accounts you would just re-send a request. How many are on your list in total? I have around 10 that I keep with no issues.

I had more then I thought... 13, and 5 of them were people I planned for and took on a trip many years ago that all swear they will never go again (and I would never go with them again anyway!). I kept getting a message "Because xxx has active admission or plans, they cannot be removed at this time". I inactivated their old magic bands, but it didn't help... I still couldn't remove them. Happy to report I DID find a painful way to finally get rid of them myself. I created MDE accounts for each them using "dummy" emails, then shared my plans which each of them and voila! It let me remove them one by one... I can't take credit for this technique, found it on another website!

As for my sister and nephew, if it's easy to add them back I may end up removing them as well. It's just annoying how they show up in the middle of my friends and family, so it costs me precious seconds when going for a boarding group. Without them now I can just hit select all and go for it... I'll take every advantage I can get!!!

Thanks for your input! :)
