    There will be EE at DCA all three days we are there 01/26-28 and since we are staying offsite and don't have AP's our best bet is getting FP since we won't be able to use this technique. Right?

    Yes, I would get the FP. Standby will be busy already. Single rider is another option.

    This is the ride the kids want to do so badly! Is it a fast ride? Are they driving or just sitting there? If we get a FP right at the 8am opening, how long will they most likely be in line for Easter Sunday to April 6.

    It is a fast ride for part of the ride. Slow at first. Fast at the end. They are "racers" after all. :)

    Guests just sit in the cars.

    If you come at 8AM opening it will likely take you 30+ minutes to actually get an RSR FP. If you come at 7:40 it will probably still take 30 minutes but you will have it by 8:10 rather than 8:30.

    If the park opens at 8am, your two options that Hydroguy explained are to get out of the FP line with your FP at either 8:10am or 8:30am.

    OK, another scenario. Can the wide right technique work if you are getting a rider swap pass?

    As Valpo said, if the park opens at 8AM then getting the FP at 8:10AM is not before the park opens but after.

    Depends. Mostly on luck. Is there a CM at the entrance ready with the pass? Will they make you show them the small child? Will the people in the line let you back in after you stepped out to get a rider switch pass?

    Hard to know if it will work or not. Anything that slows you down means you won't be among the first on the ride. This is of course, assuming the ride is up to begin with. :)

    Good luck!

    Thanks so much for posting this - we were the first group on RSR yesterday - it totally made my son's and dad's birthday visit! Sent my husband to get fastpasses while the rest of us did the wide right at a 10am opening with no early entry, we arrived around 9am and were second in the queue at the gates and were let into CA at 9.30am.

    Regarding fastpasses, they had 8 machines working yesterday and he was able to get a 10.40am time and line up with no queue for more fastpasses with a return time of 1.45pm. It was a very quiet day in the park however.

    If you get the chance be sure to do the ride when Carsland is lit up of an evening - it is even more special then. And watching Carsland light up after dusk is definitely worth doing.

    We didn't realise until our 3rd ride that there were two alternatives ie Liugi's or Ramone's just before the race section of the ride so be sure to see if you can experience both.

    Regards

    Liz

    So you were able to get 2 sets of FP's in one day for RSR?

    Is there a limit to how many FPs you can get for one ride? Besides limited by time, that is.

    We're you allowed to use your 1:45 pm FPs in the evening? As in, FP return times were not being enforced at RSR?

    Yes we got two fast passes for RSR in one day. 10am opening. First was for 10.40am and were able to get a second at 10.40am (no queue) for 1.45pm. Note that this was a very quiet day in the park.

    We used the second at 5.30pm or so - no enforcement of return times on RSR as at Tuesday 15 Jan.

    Hope that helps

    Liz
