    Nemo and Pan

    Hi,
    For Dec 3, Disneyland is open 9-6. Wondering whether to hit Nemo or Pan first thing -- or would the lines be about the same first thing in the am?
    TIA

    Re: Nemo and Pan

    I'd hit Pan first....mainly because waiting in a long line for Pan makes the ride seem shorter whereas Nemo has has some length to it.

    I like that thought pattern and it's so true. When the kids were younger we waited one time later in the day and when we got off Pan we were like "I didn't remember it being that short."

    Plus, you go to Pan first it should pretty much be a walk on (if you are there at rope drop) and as soon as your off (which won't take long) you can go to Nemo and it shouldn't be too much worse.

    Good advise sleepyjeff, good advice.

    I would hit Nemo first, and if you are staying until closing get in line for Pan near closing time, the line at closing for Pan will be much shorter than the line for Nemo at closing.

    Re: Nemo and Pan

    My experience lately is that the line for Nemo is getting pretty short i.e. 30-45 minutes the closer you are to park closing. I think Nemo is still a ride people are waiting to rush to right at rope drop.

    Especially when you factor in the long vacations that will be hitting from this weekend on... That means a lot of first timers who haven't yet experienced the wonder that is Nemo.

    Free advice... You get what you pay for.

    Good luck!

    That thing is crappier than the Willamette after a rain storm.

    Cool Re: Nemo and Pan

    FWIW, we got in the sub line at 11:38 PM Sunday 11-11-07 and were loading in 30 minutes. When we got off, the line was clear. For a 9AM opening, there will likely be a rope drop after opening Main St. at 8:30. Because of this, instead of a stream of people entering the gates at opening, a MOB of people will flood the park instantly, so lines will build up much, much, much faster; especially those 2.
    We only went for 1 day, and skipped PP to ride the subs at opening and close. If you must do both, I'd do 1 in the morning, and one in the evening. I also liked the subs better at night.

    A bientot.

    Simple.

    Pan first thing, Nemo last thing.

    Re: Nemo and Pan

    I did Nemo several times during the last week in October. I found that the line was actually the worst in the early morning (everyone probably wanted to ride it first.)

    The longest line I waited in for Nemo said it was 60 minutes... we were boarded in under 45 minutes.

    Peter Pan on the other hand was booked all the time and the only time we rode it was very early in the morning when lines were light... so I would also say to do Pan first.

    But don't miss Nemo, it's fun!

    Re: Nemo and Pan

    EVERYBODY will make a beeline straight towards Nemo. Go to Peter Pan first (don't even bother passing by Nemo) and the Peter Pan line will be about 20 minutes long. Any other time in the day it'll be about 45 minutes long.

    I got to DL at rope drop about a month or so ago. Goofygoof and I went straight to Nemo and it was already over an hour long. We decided to skip it and power walked to Peter Pan. The wait was 20 min. (the shortest I've ever seen it).

    Re: Nemo and Pan

    There was a time when I used to RUSH to Peter Pan in the morning. I did this for a long time until one visit when I realized, this ride is only so-so.

    Re: Nemo and Pan

    Since Monday is an early entry day you can play it either way if you have early entry, if not subs.

    Re: Nemo and Pan

    If you're going to be there all day, I'd hit Pan first and hit Nemo around closing. It seems the line is pretty steady for Nemo even at opening, and you can hit Peter Pan, Dumbo and quite a few other Fantasyland rides in the same amount of time you're waiting and riding Nemo.

    Re: Nemo and Pan

    I agree with everyone here, Pan first Nemo later in the day. I would expect that to be a light day in the park as well so you should be able to get a lot of rides done.

    Re: Nemo and Pan

    I agree with all those who say to go to pan first. Peter Pan has a freak mutant line which is only short at opening. The only other time I've had any luck with is right after fireworks, when they're reopening Fantasyland, but most people use that time to head to Fantasmic.

    And, as others said, subs appears worst in the morning, and at least gets a little better in the afternoon. And, I think, it's easier to wait for, probably because of the longer ride time.
