DHS has been popular, I sort of expect an extension of more dates possibly being added this week.

Do you want to ride TRON and 7D as many times as you can stomach, or do you want to ride RotR and MMRR as many times as you can stomach?

Question, I have seen where this will be extended into next year, but I only see dates through June/July. I am traveling in Sept. Any idea when I may see those dates? IS this same as the 60 days to make restaurant reservations?

What if they are vloggers and/or website owners with an axe to grind and already have an AP? 🤔

Only if you pay for theme park admission for them.

Do we get to supply the bodies that get sucked up by the giant street vacuums? :cautious:

Maybe if it’s like 6-7 am, then breakfast and the rides close before EE at 8 am. Nothing like a 4 am wake-up on vacation! It’ll be like a runDisney race but there’s no medal after your run and you aren’t allowed to pee in the bushes.

I’m sure Disney could find a way.

Can‘t do that with daily early entry though. It defeats the purpose of EE if there’s already a line for Slinky Dog.

They sold a pre park opening event pre-Covid. MK it included Fantasyland and a breakfast and at DHS is was Toy Story Land and breakfast.
