We have a seven day trip planned the first week of February. Current plan is for 2 days at HS. No park hoppers.

We are not early birds. For a 9am opening, we could get there at 7:30.

I have to make my FP tomorrow and I can’t decide when to start my HS FP for the day so we can attempt one of the two SWGE rides in the morning.

First one with a 10:30-11:30 window?

Arriving at 7:30 for the 9a opening should get you through one SWGE ride to get to your FP - with the grace period you have until 11:45.

If you don’t really need 2 Tier 2 FPs, book one for 9:30 and allow it to expire. That way, if you finish early in SWGE you can use the FP if you’d like. If it expires, after you use your remaining 2 FPs, you can then book another Tier 1.

Have people been reporting missed FP getting “stuck” recently? Would love to schedule a tier 2 while we are actually in SWGE, but I don’t want a situation where we have to go to guest services to fix it later.

I believe those who had a Tier 2 not drop off, Canceled > Rebooked > tapped out and walked away. No recent reports of needing GR assistance.
