Just be flexible with times and keep trying. I snagged my last FP at 20 days out. Lucky to have two for the last trip!

Try getting there as early as possible on Christmas Day if you do not get any fast passes . Christmas and news years mornings are traditionally not quite as crowded as later in the day. It is an excellent ride and worth the bother to try to get to ride.

I currently have 4 fastpasses for FOP for the 23rd of Dec. I might not be able to use. As we get closer to travel dates, remind me again, and I'll xfer them to you if I can't use them. Odds are we won't. That's our travel back home day.

We also have FP+ for the morning we are leaving (Dec. 26). Good chance we won't make it and will cancel it, but not much chance we can coordinate like La Mike.

FWIW - We were at AK on Wednesday this past week and the standby wait around 3:30pm was 240 minutes....

I thought about getting in line just to shake the hand of the last person in line and let him know he was a better man than I......

Also, the River ride was a 2 hour wait, though we had a fast pass for it.

It was interesting and neat to see, but not something I would stand in line for 2 hours to see.

Seeing the whole area lit up at night was way cool, though.

I thought the Canteen was one of the best meals we had for the week. Definitely worth eating there. We did the chicken/sweet and red potato hash/chimicuri combination (recommended by the CM at the register). Very good.

Good luck with the FP, if you don't score maybe the standby line will extend to your new place in Winter Garden!
