If you are planning on going on Toy Story make sure to get there early as the fastpass runs out before 11am and the wait is really really long like 1.5 to 2 hrs... Make sure to see the lights motor action show and of course Fantasmic!!

I would consider adding the drawing class at Animation Academy. It is fun and gives you a nice free souvenir. I would also try to keep it a fairly relaxed schedule with people watching breaks and maybe some cupcakes at Starring Rolls. You want to be at rope drop for TSM and the party goes late.

We usually do TSM (and grab FP for it to do again) at RD. then often meet Phineas&Ferb right after. I think they start meets at 9:30. We usually get over there early and there is no line. That doesn't seem to be the case later in the day. Then hit Star Tours. After that, you can see whatever shows you are interested in. We like Ariel & Beauty.

Agree with this - FP and Standby TSM then head for Phineas & Ferb. They do start at 9:30, and I've not had a line the two times I've gone to see them then. They're pretty far back past Star Tours and Muppets, and no one goes to/through that area early in the day because they're all running to TSM, ToT, RNRC, or JTA signups.

This is from early February with low(er) crowds, but I've done Star Tours 6 times per trip for 2 trips and the ONLY time I've ever seen a significant standby wait is in that mid-afternoon period when crowds are highest. FPs were available all day with a fairly short return wait.

I just got the ok from my cardiologist to do big, fast rides! Did all 3 mountains at MK last week! Yay! It was great! I had emergency open heart surgery last August. Yeah, I'm 41, lol! So now I can add Tower of Terror & Rockin Rollercoaster, IF I can talk DD into it! Changes my whole plan!

The parade had its last run yesterday, so you might want to take it off the list.

So does this look doable with the times during mid October, crowd level 5?

Toy Story Mania
Studio backlot tour
Great movie ride
M&G Phineas & Ferb
Snack
Indiana jones @ 11:15
Star tours
Muppets 3D
Quick lunch @ pizza planet or snack
Lights motors action @ 1:20
Tower of Terror
Beauty & the Beast @ 3:00

My concern is lunch and m & g. Not sure how the time will work.

I was watching wait times today and ToT had 20 minutes at 2 pm. This seem accurate?

Here's how I would do it:

Rope Drop
Head straight to Toy Story - done by 9:15
FP RNRC (return time 10:10 to 11:10)
Ride ToT - done by 9:35
Meet Phineas and Ferb - done by 10:00
Great Movie Ride (if you have time, but if the M&G goes over, move on to ToT)- done by 10:40
ToT with fast pass - done by 11:00
Indiana Jones @ 11:15
Star Tours - done by 12:15
Lunch at Pizza Planet until 1:00 (long lunch planned, so if you get done early and missed GMR, you can head to that during this long lunch break; otherwise, you can head to Muppet Vision 3D early, if you would like)
Muppet Vision 3D - Done by 1:25
Try to do Lights Motor Action @ 1:40 (I personally don't recommend this show, but different strokes for different folks)
Head over and do either One Man's Dream or Animation Academy (Great Movie Ride if skipped earlier in the day)
Beauty and the Beast at 3:00

We were thinking about One mans dream or the Animation one. I wasn't sure we could fit it in.

I think you should be able to fit one of these in between LMA and B&TB. Again, I really wasn't impressed with LMA so I would do Animation Academy instead, head to One Man's Dream, and then do Beauty and the Beast, but if you want to do LMA, I don't see any reason you couldn't fit one of these shows between it and Beauty and the Beast.
