HS split day action plan - looking for any & all input!!

Hi. Going on our 1st trip to DW in late June. I have just come up with a park plan for HS and would love to have some of you DW veterans out there take a look at it and give me some feedback. I know I may be WAY OFF with it. I will be at HS on June 23rd in late afternoon for H&V fantasmic ADR and going to amEMH on June 25th, so I have broken up the plan over the 2 days as follows:

June 23
1. Arrive around 3:00
2. get Indiana Jones FP if any left
3. Holywood & Vine for 3:35 ADR - estimating we will be out of there by 4:30
4. Little Mermaid
5. Star Tours
6. Indiana Jones 5:30 show
7. Fantasmic - get in line around 8:15 for 9:00 show

June 25
1. arrive ~ 8:00
2. get fP for Toy Story Mania
3. See Muppet Vison 3D
4. Studio Backlot Tour
5. Toy Story Mania
6. the great movie ride
7. if time before ADR, then Honey I shrunk the Kids
8. Sci Fi Diner - 12:10 ADR
9. Exit park (We would really like to go to Typhoon Lagoon in late afternoon, so I planned on missing the stunt show)

My crowd are not thrill ride people , so we will not be doing the RR coaster or Twilight.

never known a need for FP for Indian Jones show. Did you mean to say get Star Tours FP????


Also is Honey I shrunk the Audience still open??? Someone here will know. I thought it was closed. (maybe you were referring to the kids playground for Honey I shrunk the kids tho)

Hey, didn't I just see you on the AK thread?

Thought I'd give your DHS plan a try as well. Mind you, these are just suggestions, not concrete. And I'm basing it on my old schedule and Times Guide (was there a month ago). Up to date show times, check out Steve Soarin's and studiocentral.com

1. Arrive 3:00PM
2. (There's no FP for Indiana Jones, I'd get FP for Voyage of the Little Mermaid or Star Tours.)
3. If can't get any FP, then just go straight to ADR and see how the wait is. Sometimes they'll let you in earlier, so you'll be able to get out earlier.
4. Star Tours (It's closest to Indiana, and you'll need 1/2 hr to get into Indiana to get a good seat 5-5:30)
5. Indiana Jones 5:30 show
6. Voyage of the Little Mermaid(But check what time is the last showing). Tip: If have stroller, park it before getting into line. People don't know and go in with stroller, than have to get out of line to park it.
5. Fantasmic

or
4. Little Mermaid
5. Indiana Jones
6. Star Tours
7. Fantasmic (this version might be better, timewise, fitting in Little Mermaid before last showing)

1. 8:00 Arrive
2. FP TSM (just past TSM is the Tour, have party wait there for your FP runner)
3. Studio Backlot Tour
4. Muppet Vision 3D
5. TSM
6. The Great Movie Ride (can be before/after lunch)
7. Sci Fi Diner (12:10)
8. Honey I Shrunk the Kids (playground, it's not a show)
9. Exit

The only thing I might suggest - but it may ruin your timing is to ride TSM standby and then get a fast pass. Now maybe in June this won't work, but we did it on our last trip (10/09) and it worked great. It was a regular park opening - not EMH. We rode standby - waited maybe 15 minutes - then got a fast pass that was for 11:45 I think. That way we got to ride twice

Otherwise I concur with the others

Oops - yes I meant Star Tours fast pass. Not keeping track of stuff very well! And yes, I meant the playground. I thought the kids might enjoy it.

They are telling me that late June is crazy, but I guess I can take a look at the stand by line at that time to see if it is possible. I heard it is a great ride!

I just changed my Fantasmic ADR HS plan to the one you suggested (the version with #4 being the Mermaid). It is definitely much better! I like the amEMH plan too, but I have a question. According to what I have found, the Studio Backlot Tour is not open during amEMH, so wouldn't I be better going to Muppets first as they are suppose to be open then?

Do you have Verizon-you can download an app for your phone with characters times. It worked out great last year when we went. Make sure to see Daisy at HS she's a hard one to find unless you go to Tusker House in AK.
