Which would you do?

I have two ADRs I need to decide on.

Askerhus at 8:00am or 10:55am? Which would you do? Please don't factor getting up early in your decision, well be up early anyway. My concern is feeling rushed thru the 8am one and feeling anxious about getting to Test Track at ripe drop. I also wanted to snack around WS for lunch that day. What are your opinions on this?

The second one is Tuskers house at 8:00am or 10:45am? Usually the 8:00am is a no brainier here, it accomplishes so much. But the day I was able to get the 8am for is not my ideal AK day, I got the 10:45am that day. My thoughts are we could get FP for all of us for the Safari and have my husband and son head straight to EE and ride it. We could then head back around to Tuskers at 10:45am for breakfast. Thoughts on this please? We usually are out of AK by 12:30pm anyway.

What would you do? Any advice?

I would do the 8am @ Akershus if you want to snack around WS at lunch time. I always seem to leave Akershus feeling quite full and not able to snack for a long time afterwards.

We prefer Tusker House for lunch, which I believe starts at 11. So, if you do the 10:45 reservation, they will start bringing lunch food to the bar by the time you get settled to your table. We always hang around AK to see the parade since DD loves it. We take our time when we go to lunch at Tusker House, have a chocolate martini and take a breather. :-)

Good Luck!

I'd definately take the later time at Tusker House. You'll still have plenty of touring time before and after the reservation.

I don't have any experience with Akershus...

I always found it helpful and yet again this week to take the early ADR, especially if it gets you into the park early. Generally keeps you full for awhile and you can always send someone to retrieve fast passes for Test Track as soon as its available. Keep in mind Epcot has the Marketplace foods scatterred around for great snacking too. Highly recommend the Florida Fresh stand.

Definitely keep the 8am Akershus. We did that one once and LOVED it! It was great to walk through Epcot with virtually no one around. We even stopped and took a few pics on the way back.

You will finish in plenty of time for Rope Drop, I imagine as it is buffet and family serve style. We did not feel rushed at all and had a wonderful time. We were also seated very quickly.

Have fun with whatever you decide!!!
