The thing with a WDW vacation is it takes LOTS of planning, and I mean more so then any other vacation spot! Most of us in here know this and plan accordingly, then in the middle of the day with no notice they drop SWGE is opening, midweek at the end of August...... :sad2: THEN again with no notice Disney drops reservations for GE for Savi's, Droid depot, and Oga's, kind of makes thing hard to schedule without deciding to spend the whole day in long lines.....It was pure luck when I booked our HS day on the 29th WAY back when we were allowed to book ADR's and when the big 3 opened up as I saw a thread in here about reservations for Savi's and was messing around on the WDW web site and then there it was "check availability" button for Savi's and was able to book. So our day of endless lines was no longer! Sucks to not be as lucky and I feel the frustration of some who are not able to book BUT persistence is the key, keep on trying as openings do happen every now and then, good luck!
I made my plans in May for December 1-8, pinning my hopes that Rise of Resistance would open some time in 2020. Imagine how I felt finding out it's opening right in the middle of my vacation 😅.

I got all my dining and experience reservations I wanted so I'm happy all things considered. I'm going to GE to explore the land. I'll pass on the rides for now.

To quote Leonard Snart "Make a plan, execute the plan, expect the plan to go off the rails, throw out the plan". I think this sums up just about every Disney vacation 🤣

I'm feeling the frustration with Disney planning right now, too. Our FP day is in 2 weeks and we arrive mid-day on the last day of EEMH. I'm going to be so frustrated if we book all our FPs then they announce major EMH changes that change which park we should go to each day. I'm okay if they don't extend EEMH; that's what I'm planning on for now. It's also okay if they continue offering it daily. But if they announce in October that they're going to continue it just a few days a week, that's going to throw all our months of planning out the window.

So just to be clear--you don't need a reservation at one of the 3 offerings to hopefully ride MF, correct? We have a few days of EEMH--so my plan was to get there early, and get into line. I don't really have interest in any of the 3 reservation places, so this is why I'm asking.

Correct, you do not need a reservation to enter the land, ride MF:SR, or shop at any of the other places that don't require reservations.
