    We are planning on breakfast at 8am and park opens at 9am. Should we head to Navi, ee, or safari first?

    Many folks have commented about the queue, and missing it with FP+. Personally, I'd much rather skip it than wait 2 or more hours to see Jake floating in a tank. It's cool but not a must do when the lines are so long. Other than some hand prints on the walls I really didn't think it was that great. Just another opinion.

    We are staying offsite for the first time and are going to AK one day. Will we be able to do Flight of Passage and Navi River Journey if we can't obtain FPs? We are going in the middle of May on a non-EMH day. We would also like to do the night time Kilimanjaro Safari

    From what I've read, your best bet would be to get to the park an hour before opening, do FoP first then Navi River after (though you will probably be able to fastpass that).

    I was able to get a fast pass for FOP! AK was scheduled to open at 9 with EM hour starting at 8 but they moved EM hour to 7 for an opening at 8. Fast passes were available for 8-9 am

    Is it likely that they will open ak earlier than 9 on March 2? We have breakfast at 8 but I won’t do it if we don’t get in early.

    Actually more like 90 minutes if you're RDing FOP.

    Doubt it. I think these increased hours for Feb are because of school vacations/Presidents' Day week crowds.

    Okay thanks. I’m kind of excited to try breakfast before the park opens. Never done it before and it sounds like we won’t have to wait nearly as long for characters.

    So I am confused. We will be at AK on 26 Feb. EMH morning 0800 - 0900. When I go to make FP, it only list 0900, vice 0800. Why is the hour from 0800 - 0900 not listed in FP+ as an option?

    We're headed to AK February 12 by our current plan. We were initially staying offsite so I couldn't book early, and by the time we scored a room at POFQ it was 31 days out so we didn't gain much FP advantage that way!

    Got Navi FP for late afternoon, and have been furiously refreshing for either an earlier time there or the rare chance of FOP, but no luck yet. Our group is 5 people--should I be splitting us into 2 and 3 when refreshing for better odds? We have a toddler who is too short to ride as well so technically would be eligible for rider swap if only a few of us get FP, I guess, although the plan was to get everyone booked and just ride in 2 shifts.

    We're doing EMM the next day so I'm not sure we're up for rope drop that morning. And the toddler may be too exhausted for us to all survive until park close for that strategy, although if we fail at FP maybe we'll split up so at least some of us can ride that way...really hoping for FP to make life a little easier!
