    Can someone review my NRJ RD 8AM EMH plan and make sure I'm not missing anything? Thanks.

    The plan is to get up early and get a good breakfast at the Pop food court when they open at 6am (they claim to serve Mickey Waffles at 6 per the site), not really rushing. Then shortly before 6:30am head on over to the buses and catch the next one that shows up provided it isn't super late or anything. Doesn't seem like a taxi or Lyft is necessary since I won't be doing FOP at RD- unless of course it's well after 7 and there's no signs of a bus. I have heard that for FOP, you should stay close to the right of the Pandora line masses- so does it make sense for me to be on the left side then for NRJ?

    You shouldn’t have a hard time getting an appointment that fits your schedule.

    Thank you!
    We are attending Disney After Hours on Friday night the 26th, have Avatar fast passes for Sunday the 28th. AK has EMM on Saturday but 27th which I was going to get up and go purposely to get an Avatar making appointment but I would much rather just do it on Sunday when we have the fast passes.

    What is "Making an Avatar"? We leave in 45 days and have 3 AK days. Want to make the most of it. Thanks.

    I know this is a couple weeks old now, but just wanted to add that the FP queue (actually more like the single-rider queue) gets used for standby for an hour or more at open - if one wants to see the full queue - and I do but haven't managed it yet - there's no good option at park open that I know of. (If this has changed recently, I stand corrected and welcome the news.)

    In Pandora there’s a gift shop called Windtraders. In windtraders you can customize your own avatar figure for $75. You set up an appointment and then during your appointment they scan your face and you can customize your avatar hair, eyes, and face paint. Hope this helps! Here’s a link about it from the Disney website:

    If your planning at least to stay half a day at AK then you should be able to customize your avatar the same day as your fast passes.

    But...you can still see the avatar in the tube if you know where and when to look...even if it's in the next room. At least it isn't full of waiting people so you can see it unobstructed, except for the window.

    I did want to see the full-size avatar...but I didn't want to wait in that line if I could help it...a view from far away was okay by me. It isn't the clearest view...but it is there.

    It's cool but not worth waiting 2 or more hours to see it.

    I believe the pop century with how different the refurbishments make the rooms look. What’s going on at beach/yacht club?

    Thanks. I know that, but I just wanted reassurance. :) So glad I got a FOP FP after refreshing so many times!

    Argh, I have had zero luck finding 2 FOP fastpasses on February 21st. Zippo. Any strategy ideas, just log on and refresh all day long? I think I'm 40 days out, better to wait to closer to the date and try?

    You can continue to try... or just wait. The closer you get, the better chance you'll find something as people firm up plans and cancel.

    This is good to know. I was debating attempting standby at park open in order to see the whole queue. I figured I would not be in the very first group of people so I was hoping to miss the rerouting to the FP line but it sounds like it may not be worth even trying at this point. I guress to be determined after I book FPs.
