We're hoping to rope drop FoP on our upcoming trip, but we'll need to rider swap since we have littles. I've read accounts of people attempting rider swap at other rides (riding standby) who were frustrated with rider swap because while they were getting the rider swap set up with a CM, a ton of people pass them to enter the stand-by line, thus resulting in a much longer wait time. I've read with FoP that where you position yourself to get in that line at rope drop can change your wait time from 15 minutes to 1-2 hours, so I'm worried that putting the effort into rope drop for a shorter wait time will backfire as we'll lose our advantage when we stop to set up rider swap. AK is our third park day, so we will have tested rider swap out before then, but I'm curious what others' experiences have been with rider swap at FoP. Did people pass you? Were the CMs quick so you didn't loose your place in standby? Thanks!
