The blogger who did that video seemed to be arriving at the park at 10:30 am. On some days during this week, MK may be opening at 7:00am. You could have ridden all your faves and more in that 3 and a half hours! During a crowded period, nothing beats getting there AT rope drop. I sacrifice some early morning sleep to eliminate possible stress later in the day. While the blogger was trudging through the crowds at 2pm, I would be enjoying an ADR. I'd stick around for the afternoon parade (Xmas edition) and then head back to the resort for a nap. I am going to be trying my own advice for the first time this year and will be sure to post my results .
