Here's an idea-how 'bout they just schedule for Spring Break hours from the get go? It isn't like this time period is 1)different every year and 2)a surprise.

As long as it’s not during the 6 months of summer! Any time we’ve tried on a 90 degree day, we are either on the verge of passing out or (more often) there’s a big thunderstorm. Been burned too many times by DAK when there’s lightning! I did love the RoL time period when it was open late in the winter…

Could also do the opposite lol Single Rider line on Everest an hour or two before close is fantastic, then hop on Flight of Passage a minute before park close lol

ToTBellHopJan 12, 2024

Getting to DAK by 7:15 or so (as a resort guest) requires extra coffee but there’s nothing better than walking on to FoP at 7:25 (or booking a FoP ILL and walking on to Everest 8 times before 8:30)!
