I learned from the last experience to get in line early...before the actual time opens. When it opened there were 3 in the queue. It was much simplier than waiting until 9 like I did last time and BARELY getting tickets before sell out. I think these were sold out within the 1/2 hour or sooner after open for those without reservations.

Getting to the page early didn’t help me on 4/3. I left the queue open on my computer the night before. When the queue finally opened, I was around 3600 in the queue. That morning, I entered the queue on another computer shortly before 9 and was around 3300 in the queue. They claim that the position in the queue is random at 9am. So, getting online early really doesn’t help with the new system.

We were able to get tickets, but it was a 40 minute wait!

I got on at 8 am and I also read it that when they open at 9, it is random selection for those in line before. I had also notice that their clock said 9 am but the count down clock was about 40 seconds behind their clock and my computer clock. So I didn't technically get assigned into the que until 9:00:40. Weird.

I jumped in line at 8:50 on 4/3 and was 2700, further up than several who said they were in the queue hours earlier, so it's definitely random.

I am staying onsite and so I queued for tickets the day they opened to onsite people. I got number 990 in the queue so there's a huge difference between on and off site

Anyone tried the typhoon lagoon event? We will be on-site so I figure we should give it a try in September.

Did anyone get the email to register tomorrow for MM for Animal Kingdom? I haven't seen it yet like the last time we went. Just seeing if I'm missing it. We have reservations at BWV.
