But, a shorter wait time can be accomplished without a GAC. I've got it in my touring plan for our upcoming trip and don't anticipate a wait based on my research into best times to do different attractions. If we have to stand back away from the crowds at RD (DD15's at her best first thing in the morning so some days she can handle being right up at the rope while other days we have to stay to the back) then we'll just wait for the second show if the first one is full. The max wait will be the length of one show following this plan and that's without using a GAC. I'm hoping that seeing it once will mean we don't have to see it in future trips. Boy would that make plans easier. Once I started doing research into touring plans, I learned that a good touring plan really can accomplish so much more than a GAC can. Yes I do still use a GAC but nowhere near as much as I used to and our day goes so much smoother and we accomplish so much more in the limited time we have in the parks.
