And TSM was just "Meh" to us.

I truly don't get it....on either one.
You are definitely in the minority, hence the long wait lines and the FP's that disappear quickly.

We absolutely *love* both rides, but never wait in standby lines, except first thing in the morning after we get our FP's.

Now, think of the happiest things. It's the same as having wings.

We were just there last week and I was really stressing about getting to experience TSMM with my kids! I had heard it was fun and we wanted to try it, but I knew how quickly the fast passes went! My youngest DS and I arrived at opening and managed to get fast passes and hopped on with a 30 minute wait. When we were done, we caught the street performers doing a trivia contest giving away a dream fast pass...my son won it!!!! He originally told them he wanted to go on RRC, but then chickened out lol! I went to guest services and asked if there was anyway we could change it TSMM and the cm hands me 4 fast passes and told me to keep the RRC one! We would up gifting it to another family and enjoyed TSMM for a third time! It was a great day!

Checking my wait times app today, it seems that TSM's last FP was handed out between 12:15 and 12:20 and Soarin's last FP was handed out around 12:55pm.

Wait time for Soarin' is 150 minutes and TSM! is 120 minutes.

I do want to point out that it is a major holiday weekend, which affects the wait times at least to some extent.

Experiences can differ based on what time of year you're in the parks, although I think the lines for TSM and Soarin' are always among the longest in the World.
