Is FOP still a tough FP at 60 days?

    Booked my FP+ yesterday. Didn't want FOP (motion sickness) but did see it was available at 60+2 for the evening (I think 6:55 was the earliest).

    I am hoping for an evening FP for FOP on 60, if not I have time open on 60+3 or 60+4 that I could snag and use my park hoppers for.

    If I can't get FP for FOP on 60 in the evening is it likely more possible to get Na vi River FP or not likely that either?

    Navi River is easy to get, it's still available for all days of my trip next month so roughly 40-50 days out

    Hmmm, maybe if I can't get FP for FOP on day 60, I can take Navi FP and try waiting on line for FOP that day... perhaps the wait is shorter in the evening?? Thinking about doing AK on my arrival day ( would like to experience Pandora day and night, will have hoppers), realistically able to get to AK by 5pm. Family would like to see Rivers of Light so might use a FP for that as well. So many decisions and I feel so out of practice as we haven't been in almost 4 years!

    I've heard that wait times are comparatively short if you join the line just before park closing for FOP

    I did mine yesterday and for the 60+3 I had times for FOP that started about noon time. I booked a FP for two at 1:30. When I was done just to be noisy I looked at 60+2 and they're wasn't any FOP FP for any times. This was about 7:15 am.

    I’m hoping our ak day isn’t just busy because the earliest we could get for 60+3 was 5:40 pm. We just barely got it for that day. I know there’s a dance competition that weekend but I figured they would be competing. Maybe that’s a park day for them.

    Na'vi should be easy. I think pretty much every time was open at 60+2.

    This is true. Much preferable to the craziness of RD, IMO.

    I couldn't get FOP but did get Na'vi every easily. I've been checking for the past two weeks and still plenty of times for Na'vi available (I'm going to keep stalking MDE for FOP though).

    Just posted this in the Pandora thread. The day is 60+1, Monday March 5, which is also an EMH day. I feel so lucky. :):)

    OMG...! Finally found a FOP FP+ on the day I wanted after hundreds of refreshes. For 12:20 too! Not too shabby. I'll probably refresh some to see if I can get an earlier time, but that's pretty dang good for the first one I found!!! So happy!! :)

    Today was FP+ day for arrival on 3/9. I was able to get FOP for 60+3 easily this morning, logged in exactly at 7 am eastern and went for FOP first. I got 10:45 am FP+ for a party of 3. 30 minutes later there were still plenty of FP+ for FOP from 2:30 on.

    Wow! Lucky you! That doesn't sound stressful at all. Must not be a busy day at AK?

    Touring Plans has it at 7/10 crowd-wise. I used them to pick all my days. (That's the lightest the week I'm there)

    Very promising news from what I'm hearing. I need to book fastpasses on Friday and I'm hoping to get FOP for 60+5 for 2. I've been worried because I know it's that week spring break crowds start picking up.

    60+3 seems to be the magic day. I couldn't get even 2 FOP FP+ for 60+2 right at 7am but they were available for 60+3 even later in the day. Unfortunately that didn't work for our plans, oh well.

    You should have no trouble at all with 60+5.
    Our day is like 3 or 4/10 I think (not on touring plans, I don’t have that) but I just barely got FPs at 60+3. I’m not sure why that is.
