Hollywood Studios Rope Drop

If the park officially opens at 9am on sunday 7th dec has anyone any idea at what time they'll officially start the turnstiles?
We're going from PO-riverside, would aiming for a bus at 8 give enough time? Two adults no kids so we can walk briskly !

It can open between 8:30 and 8:45 if it is not an EMH morning.

At POR, go to the bus stop at the front of the resort well before 8:00 and you have a better chance of making it onto a bus and into the park at rope drop.

We did DHS at rope drop last week, coming from CBR. We got to the CBR bus stop around 8am for a 9am opening, and buses were moving slow. We arrived around 8:35 or so, and the line at the turnstyles were backed up to the ticket booth. They opened the gates between 8:45-8:50, and we walked VERY briskly back to TSMM. Even though we were relatively far back in line, we did get on TSMM in about 15 minutes. Once you get to the stairs in the queue, they generally allow parties of two to stay to the right which will shave a good 10 minutes off your wait time.

If you don't want to risk this or want to be closer to the front of the turnstyles, I'd leave closer to 7:30am.
