What's the latest news on ETWB?

What's the latest news on ETWB? Is the best plan still to run there at RD? Is it truly terrible later in the day? DD has BBB at 8:50 on one MK day (I was hoping to get a few pre super crowds pictures) and PL at 9 am on another MK day, and Disney Pirate Adventure out of Grand Floridian at 9:30 am on our third MK day. Should I try to do either PL or BBB later in the day to get to ETWB first thing?

Yes, ETWB first.

My DD still hasn't met Merida. So, if we are there at RD for 9:00 open (Sunday of Mem Day weekend), should we still do ETWB first, then Merida, then Mermaid ride, then Ariel M&G?? Whew, DS will be on girlie overload by then... . Guess we'd head to SM next to try to help with that.

I would do ETWB, Ariel M&G, Merida M&G, get Space FP, then ride Ariel.

Thanks, mesaboy! About how long do you think those things would take, total? Wondering if my Space FP will come due before I have time to hit Sleepy Hollow for a waffle sammich.....I shall surely perish if dont have one before noon

The wait for Merida is outside and informal. So we don't mind just going ahead and making that our long wait. We send someone to Cosmic Rays to get our group a snack and drink while the rest stand in line. Then we eat and drink. Cuts the 30-60 min so it doesn't seem that bad. And if the boys don't want to meet her (our boys like her) Tomorrowland is right there.

Bwahahaha! I like that!

If I had to guess, the Space FP would be into the early afternoon by then. If it isn't, wait to get the FP until after riding Ariel.

D'oh! Tried to correct that before you saw it! Thanks for the info! Those are our only real MK must-do's this trip. Plus BTMRR which was down all afternoon of our last visit.

We did it after Wishes last week when the park was open another hour. Line was 20 minutes and my DGD 5 got to be the beast, which meant she danced with Belle at the end!
