One day RoR will not be the bell of the ball; hard to imagine but it’s true. Example at WDW - before Mine Train opened for while Ariel has a huge wait. I remember when Dumbo was a huge deal and you had to hit it at rope drop. And Pooh has long lines - today it’s often walk on. Heck just today Disney adds Smuggler run to FP+ and all the sudden boom Slinky Dog ( the hardest FP at HS) becomes available. Look it’s an amazing ride and the BGs are at least consistent and do not reward anyone special. Day tickets have the same chance as VIPs and those staying at club level in WDW. It does require you to be there at park open but it is no mystery how it works.Locals who come later would have 3 optiions.
1. Pick up a cancelled fastpass using Maxpass
2. Use the Single Rider line (which I am pretty sure RotR was designed to have, like MFSR
3. Get in the standby line
That is what late arriving locals do for other popular rides like RSR, Space Mountain, Indiana Jones, etc.
