I agree and typically like to do my extra waiting before a park opens. We’re coming from western Canada so with the 3 hour time difference the afternoon seems more appealing rather than the early morning! We have Express Pass so I’m hoping that will help us get the other rides done quicker to allow for the wait for Hagrid.Well, if you get there well before opening the concept is once it's officially open and there is no delay in opening, you can be done within 9:30-10AM since you're one of the first groups there. That way you spent all your time waiting prior to the park being open and once you're done you can do the rest of what you want to do.
However, at the same time, people have been having good luck in the afternoon and due to them having an over estimation of wait times (to compensate if there is a delay), guests have been having a less wait time if there is no delays, or weather interruption.
At this point, it's the question of how much you wait to wait, when you want to wait, and what kind of risk you want to take, because both methods are still not 100% yet.
