    We waited for them to open the line back up for EMH (so after they cut off the line for regular times) and were firstbfor that line. Waited about 40 mins in that and then about 40 mins in the queue once they reopened the line and then did river journey with about 30 min wait - this was the first week Pandora was open so I definitely think you would have time to do both. The last new are longest right at the start of EMH so I suggest you do FoP first just in case River Journey takes a while and then they close the FoP line

    I think Uber is the safest bet. The Disney website said uses startbrunning 45 mins before park opening - though I see reports of them starting earlier but I know I would be nervous about it so for me it would be worth the $6 or whatever the Uber would be

    I think 7 would definitely be early enough - though things are changing every day and just getting into summer crowds so hard to know for sure, but I think you'd be fine

    Yesterday, at 6:00 pm all of the banshees had been adopted once again. Is there anyone there today who can confirm if they are still sold out, or if more have been found? Today's our last day at Epcot, but I can certainly make a detour for a banshee looking for a nice home o_O.

    Positive they will. Not nightly though. That will end eventually.

    Yes, baring an operational delay with one or both ride, you can do both during EMH hours. Probably looking at about an hour for FoP, less for Navi, all things running normally.

    I think the nightly will end during the slow months of Sept and Oct and then pick up again for the Holiday Season.

    I hope so. Not certain though, depends on a lot of factors, crowd levels being but one.
    But, we are seeing these rides have operational issues.
    We were there the first week when they didn't have any operational issues, or at least none to speak of. You never heard of them going down even with the huge crowds.
    They are working them a lot of hours, continually. Now, lots of issues. Correlation or coincidence? No idea. I'm sure the ride engineers can answer and are on top of it. If it's due to such short hours of down time they may have to cut down on the nightly EMH at some point. Mid Aug sees the drastic drop in crowds due to a significant portion of the country heading back to school. It would not surprise me at all to see the nightly EMH end then.

    Today was my 60 day window for Fast passes. I'm going for only three days, but for all three days I'm unable to get anything for Flight of Passage. Is this normal? I would at least think there would be one bad time or something. Do you think they'll open up more? Or is this pretty consistent with how it's been going for the summer and this ride?

    This is the norm. It's always best to check the last days of your vacation first, but 3 days us pretty short when you consider many people visit for 5 or more days. You can keep checking but that will probably be it u less someone cancels.

    We are going in July and had no problem getting a 9:50 a.m. FP for FOP on day 2 of our trip. I just got on right at 7:00 and there were plenty of times. I guess it just depends on when you're going? I'm sorry you're having such trouble getting one.

    Unfortunately all my upcoming trips will be short weekend trips. Do you think at the end of September it'll be easier to get since kids are back in school?

    It might not hold true every night, but this past Saturday I don't know that they ever cut off the standby line for Flight of Passage prior to 11:00 PM. I was a non-resort guest and was able to get in line at 10:40 PM. It was a posted 120 minute wait, but ended up being about 75 minutes. It was around 11:00 before we made it from the outside part of the queue to the inside part. So I could still see the end of the line until then. The line at that point looked quite a bit longer than when I got into it, but EMH guests getting into line around 11:00 likely had a similar wait to me if not shorter due to no FP coming into the line at that point. As we were exiting the ride around 12:20 Na'vi River Journey was posted as 20 minutes. So it would have been very feasible for an EMH guest to be able to do both.

    Thanks for sharing your experience! I am worried about not getting FoP Fp for my second day of the trip. I have planned another AK morning on my 5th day. I hope I am able to get at least one FP for FoP over the trip. However, I am definitely going to try the standby queue on one EMH morning. There are still no AK evening EMH during my August stay. I hope they would extend evening EMH for the rest of August. Pixie Dust!

    Hi-
    I just booked this weekend at 60 days out right at 7:00am. Was able to get FOP for five days into trip for a midday time- no morning FP available.

    This past Saturday was my 60 day window, I was on right at 7 for a 2 day trip and there were no FP for FOP. Kept checking during the day and was able to get FP's at midnight. Keep checking.

    When you kept checking back did you make a fast pass for something else and then try to modify it to FOP? I've done the constant search for dining reservations but never for Fast Passes.
