    AK EMH without FP

    HI! We are planning to visit AK on Monday, May 27th for EMH. (I will try for FOP FP but want to have a plan in case it doesn't happen)

    This will be our 1st of 2 visits to AK

    If I can't get FOP we will probably save for MK visit that evening.


    • leave house at 6:30 am (8:00 am EMH)
    • head right to FOP
    • River Journey (hope we will be done over here by 9:00)
    • EE (x2)
    • Safari
    • Tusker House 10:45
    • see about seeing a 1:00 show (Nemo, Lion King,)


    BREAK

    Does this seem like an OK morning? It is our 7th trip so we don't have to do everything!

    THANKS for any input!

    I'd leave your house at least a half hour and maybe a whole hour earlier. On a high crowd day--which I'd expect with 7 am EMH and 8 am regular open--I don't think you can do EEx2 and Safari between 9 and 10:45. You have a bit of flexibility, I suppose, in that you probably don't really have to do EE twice, but I would still want to be sure I'm at the turnstiles by at least 6:30 for a 7 am opening, and by 6:00 if I really wanted to do everything on your list before 10:45.

    Thank you! I just realized I goofed!! EMH is at 8:00...not 7:00. So, we will leave house at 6:30 for 8:00 EMH.

    Trying to decide if I should try for FP at AK that morning or just plan on using them at night.

    Or....just skip this EMH all together....

    I may be in the minority, but I don't think I would try to rope-drop FOP (or, for that matter, Slinky or 7DMT). Too many things can go wrong, and if you are even a little bit off of the front, you will burn too much of the first hour of park touring. Even if it works, it is super stressful, and this is vacation.

    FoP is not going anywhere, and at some point it will be easier to get, so if this isn't your last WDW trip, it's not terrible if you miss it. Heck, even if it is, nothing is *that* important, IMO.

    Thanks...you are right...I have been dreading that AK EMH! I just posted new plans in the itinerary group.
