    I know when making FP you always make the hardest to get ones first, no matter what day they’re on, then come back to the easier to get ones. My question is I have plans to get FOP, slinky dog dash, alien swirling saucers, 7DMT and FEA. These are all on different days, but what order should I try to make these In?

    That order already looks pretty good to me.

    What day of the trip are you wanting each of these? Example: FoP, day 4 of trip, Slinky, day 2 of trip......

    The order you have them is the order I would do. In reality, the few minutes that it takes to go from one FP to the next, most times probably doesn't make a great deal of difference, but we all worry about it. You also can have another person on another machine doing FPs at the same time.
    good luck.

    Day 2 could be an issue. I would attempt to make your day 2, day 4. Maybe even day 3. 2 might be difficult for a good FOP time

    I have read reports that the new Toy Story attractions are harder to get, so I would do those first then FoP, but if FoP is on your first day and Toy story on your 4TH, then I would leave them as you have them.

    I agree FoP will be tough on day 2, but Slinky Dog probably will on day 3 too. Anymore it really is hard to judge. Too many hard to get attractions.

    SDD was much harder for me to get (gone almost immediately) than FOP (available for a couple days after my 60 day window opened) but we are going on day two of TSL opening so that might have something to do with it.

    I can try to move around my days. I picked my park days based on my dining and TP crowd calendar. I should have thought ahead and made AK & HS days towards the end of my trip.

    I will be going the second week of December. I wonder if it might be easier to get SDD then.

    Yes, there are too many hard to get attractions. Going to be even worse when Star Wars Galaxies Edge opens too.

    I would think that Slinky Dog would be more popular than FOP, being the big new ride, right?

    I would flip day 2 and 4 if you can. I don't know if Toy story land will have much impact on FoP. Time will tell.

    Have a great time!

    I think your order looks great. I normally login to my computer and the app on my iPad at the same time to have everything ready for when it goes live.

    Slinky remained available days after my FP day. I would try for FOP first.

    Same for me when I made my FP+ selections last weekend. Slinky was available for a few days but FOP was gone much quicker. I wasn't able to get a FP for FOP for Day 1 of our trip. I did get one for Day 5 but availability was very limited and they were snatched up quickly. I easily got Slinky on Day 6 and there were still Slinky FPs available for a couple days after I booked.
