On-site guests were held at IG because of MDE issues after 10:30.

Was a cluster at Epcot IG this morning. MDE has had issues all day.

A ride report from AK. The group did FoP, Navii, EE and then Dino. They were scanned through the onsite guest checkpoint at 7:23 and went straight to FoP. By 8am they had finished and walked on to Navii. (That was at park opening). They the went to EE which was a walk on and by 9am they had ridden Dinosaur and were on their way to the Safari which had a short wait. Not bad!

That's what I predicted for how early hours would go at HS. We have adjusted our plan to get there at 7:15-7:20ish.

I do know someone who went to MFSR (where there was a small SNAFU and they were held unnecessarily ), and then roe RNR and ToT at 9am with no wait. That’s pretty good, albeit crowds are low.

I'm not sure that info will be very useful yet, considering how empty the parks are in general right now. It will be more interesting to see what it looks like in October when the parks and resorts will be slammed (at least I assume they will).

What I'm curious about is what attractions people got on and how long they waited.

Your articles are very informative, thank you. Just want you to know one of my coworkers asked me where I get all my info and I referred her to wdwmagic.

So from a round up from the other parks, this is what I’ve heard. At DHS, onsite guests were allowed in from 7:30am and then held at ropes until 8:30am. CMs walked them to rides from there. Not clear about where offsite guests were held. At the IG, onsite guests were allowed in and held at Canada heading to FW until 10:30am. Offsite guests were being held outside the IG. At AK, everyone was allowed in early (not sure how early the gates opened). Offsite guests were held before Oasis, onsite guests were scanned and allowed through.

Thanks! I'll find out when we get there. :) I think our plan of attack will be Peter Pan and Small World if we can get both done in the 30 minutes, then wait by the rope and get over to Frontierland/Adventureland and knock those out. Will try to do Genie + if available when we go for Space and Haunted Mansion. Not sure about Mine Train. Will see how long lines are before Boo Bash starts and jump in line then, or just ride it at the party. Or rope-drop it our other MK day. AK - I think honestly we will rope-drop the River Journey ride! :D I'm not all that interested in Flights of Passage, and Everest we can book using Genie +...Dinosaur never really has huge lines. Looking forward to reading how everyone uses early entry to their advantage.

I have no idea. This week crowds are low and 7d has the last longest wait. Splash has been 45 or less all day.

Can you still "rope-drop" Frontierland over near Haunted Mansion so you can scoot on over to Splash at real opening and beat the rush? (I think the rope-drop was near Columbia Harbor House, I remember doing this in 2014 with early entry and we got Small World, Peter Pan, Space, Splash, Pirates and Thunder Mountain all done before 10 am)

MK today currently at 930 were in line for our third Seven Dwarfs mine train ride. First ride at 837 was a walk on.
