Rode Space Mtn like 4 times in a row with the only wait being the walk around to the entrance. Got piles and piles of candy. We are still thinking on costumes for this year.
We always do kind of a mix... we usually don't use a day ticket, we just enter when it opens at 4. And we love that the rides are practically walk-right-on.

We decide who is THE priority character for us and we get in that line early (6:15). By the time they come out at 7, we're done by 7:10 and on our way.

We always go to see the villains show, so we go right after the 2nd parade to the last one and get in line up front for the character we want to meet.

For the rest of the night, we just go by the lines... if we go by and a line is short (10 min or less) and we feel like waiting; we wait. If not, not big deal. We'll get 'em next time. We also split up a lot, so if a couple of people really want to get in line for Donald Duck, they can go do it; the others will jump on a ride.

Same thing with the candy-- if we're passing a candy station & the line is short, we jump on it for fun. If not, no big deal-- we don't need to waste time at Disney waiting on line for candy... I mean, heck, we can get candy at home for Halloween! Disney time is precious and limited!

We did that too... best way to do it I think. We even double time by getting our QS dinner (something quick & easy like a hot dog or turkey leg) on the way to the Dwarf line, then we just plop down and eat it while we're waiting, and rest the feet for a bit... if we have to add any costume elements or put on some make up packed away we'll do that while we wait.

Saves a lot of time and then as soon as the party starts you're off & running.

I hope everyone will post there experience adding the free dining on May 9th or 6th for the disney visa holders. I'm still in the hopes of fd the second week of November and if it happens I'll need to know how to deal with the cms who will state they don't know about it. I think in 2011 I added the free dining but it had already been out for the gp about a week and still had no problems getting a room. I was staying at pop at the time.

We're going mid Oct. I'm hoping we'll end up with free dining. If we don't at least we were able to get our ADRs sorted.

I won't be able to call til around 7:45 after I get to work.

Anyone else gonna be late getting on the phone?

It used to be 6am but I leave for work at 7.

Not too concerned though. I just want a moderate and not too picky about which one. I bet the first half hour is mostly for AOA.
