Yackerz, I have to hand it to you. I've been reading your posts about this trip for a few months now and there is planning ahead and then there's planning ahead taken to a whole new level! Your itinerary is very feasible and you should be able to get to everything you listed.
However, here are a few tidbits for your consideration - The walk from Matterhorn or Alice to Splash Mountain is quite a long one. If both of you are speedwalkers like I am, it would take you around 8-10 minutes assuming that there's not a lot of people traffic along the way and not too many strollers. If you're not a speed walker, your time and energy might be better spent sticking around Tomorrowland/Fantasyland or even going to get the FP for Indy
- Not all Fastpass lines are equal. Some of them, actually most of them I'd venture to say, merge with the standby lines at some point. Whenever the merge point is close to the loading area, you can expect a quicker entry but when it's not that close like on Indy or Soarin', you still might end up waiting 20, 25, even 30 minutes. Just something to consider if you're running low on time.
- Make sure you pass by the board with all the wait times in Disneyland a few times that day just to gauge where all the longer lines are. The wait board is to the left of the Hub, between the Adventureland entrance and the Refreshment Corner.
thanks brand .. haha see the problem with planning is sometimes I almost over plan. I may just end up spending $15 on ridemax and using that plan.
Originally I had splash mountain planned for later in the day and getting an Indy fastpass in place of the splash fastpass.
However, I figured if I get a fastpass for Splash 2nd instead of indy 2nd. Reasoning is because if we get wet on Splash, we'll have the whole day to dry.,, maybe I can still get splash in by the time we depart for DCA ...
I'm just worried that if we get a fastpass for it 3rd as opposed to 2nd.. the return time will be too late, and I'll have to save it till when we get back from DCA....
Then again I could just wait in the Queue for it if its not too long.. thanks for telling me about the board. I didn't even think about that
I think the board was lagging for awhile.. because I had no replies for a good bit !.. haha and then all of a sudden like 4 of them.
I think I'm going to try going for Splash mountain without a fast pass. After grabbing the Indy fastpass. Just since it is a long walk like you said, and to get a fastpass and return would be about 15 minutes in added walking to save 15-20 min in line I'm guessing. The fatigue from walking the extra distance might not make up for those minutes
