That was from November and prior to the new AP EE I believe. That's why I wanted an update.

So any recent experiences that could tell me time info and / or just confirm that the times previously stated are still correct? Thanks!

How does the Wide Right technique work if you have a stroller to park?

It is difficult. I would recommend finding a spot for the stroller prior to rope drop. Once you are in the crowd moving toward RSR, you would have to exit and park and then try to get back in. Not an easy thing to do!

I was there on Saturday, January 12 for AP early entry. They held us at the gates until EE began, then there was a rope across the intersection near Carsland. They were doing a little show with Lightening and Mater when we arrived. The wide right still worked exactly the same.

Agree with ArchOwl...Find a place on BVS to park. You will not be able to get on first using wide right with a stroller to park.

There will be EE at DCA all three days we are there 01/26-28 and since we are staying offsite and don't have AP's our best bet is getting FP since we won't be able to use this technique. Right?

Yes, I would get the FP. Standby will be busy already. Single rider is another option.

This is the ride the kids want to do so badly! Is it a fast ride? Are they driving or just sitting there? If we get a FP right at the 8am opening, how long will they most likely be in line for Easter Sunday to April 6.

It is a fast ride for part of the ride. Slow at first. Fast at the end. They are "racers" after all.

Guests just sit in the cars.

If you come at 8AM opening it will likely take you 30+ minutes to actually get an RSR FP. If you come at 7:40 it will probably still take 30 minutes but you will have it by 8:10 rather than 8:30.
