    When do the Starbucks locations in the parks *actually* open in the mornings? Can you use Mobile Order or the Starbucks app there?

    We are rope drop people. But we haven't been to WDW since 2021, so a lot has changed. Wondering with Early Entry 3 things: 1. How early are they *actually* letting Early Entry guests into the parks and 2. How early do the in-parks Starbucks locations actually open? Like if we are some of...

    TRON @ Opening Day Rope Drop

    I have never been at WDW during the opening day of an attraction, let alone during one of the busiest weeks of the year. Can any vets advise what to expect aside from the obvious (larger than usual rope drop crowd; mad stampede to TRON). I mean, aside from the palpable excitement in the air (and...

    9/6-9/10 trip, the goal was 0 minutes in line, and the only thing cool was the crowd size

    It was just me and my husband, we're in our 30s. Short trip - 4 nights, 3 park days total. We drove because we are crazy and also I have family in Florida so I wanted the flexibility. We also split the drive up a bit. My goal for this trip was no lines. We went last year before they brought...

    Onsite ECV Rental location in EP at rope drop

    I noticed the ECV rental location in Epcot appears to be just past the area where they often hold crowds at rope drop. Does anyone know if they allow people to go over to the rental area prior to rope drop?

    Second Best Time to Arrive?

    Ok, so originally I wanted to do Rope Drop. Most of my group are not morning people. One in particular, gets migraines with seizure-like activity that will knock her out all day if we push her to get up too early. And it looks like we're getting our mobility challenged group members their ECVs...

    Getting to the parks for early entry access when staying off site Disney Hotel

    Was so excited to book our trip and finally return to Disney. I have airfare as well as hotel booked at Doubletree Disney Springs, so that we may take advantage of the early entry times/early rope drop each day.
