When we go in February 2013 we have Breakfast reservations for the Tusker Buffet at DAK about 45 minutes prior to opening and, on a different day, the Norway princess buffet.
A) I am assuming that the fast pass machines turn on when the park opens and not before? I am also assuming that our "best bet" will be to send Dad (aka me) husseling upon opening over to Everest and Test Track respectively to grab some passes while the rest of the family finishes up. Any wrinkles I should be aware of? Worth it? Or is my long experience with the DL rope drop mad rush for Tomorowland clouding my understanding of how busy those parks will actually be.
B) How does Disney handle "loading" those restaurants prior to official park opening hours? Go to front gate and get escorted?
