  • Going to first day of ROTR! Who’s with me?

    Curious what people’s strategies are going to be for getting on board Friday. How early are you going to leave to be in the park by 8am? Also, is this week going to be more CM previews or soft opening? I’d kill for an AP preview. Any rumors?

    While I won't be there Friday, I will be there the day after (the 18th). As far as plans go, we're just going to play it by ear. Get to the park at opening, scan in and hope for access to a boarding group. If things don't work out, my wife and I will just enjoy the other offerings of the park and try again another day. Good luck to you!

      Just by coincidence we are going to be there Friday and Saturday for NAMM staying at the DLH. We have now built in trying to get on ROTR to our plan lol. I have no plan on how to get on it except for standing in line early.

        All the power to you. I can't do the "first day" of anything if I want to enjoy it, but that is me. Have a great time.

            I let my pass expire, so I'm going to sleep in the 17th. I might get a new one in several months when all the craziness is over. You guys have a great time!

                          I'm really concerned about getting past security so we can enter the park by 8am.

                            I’m a little more worried about scanning tickets. Like sometimes it just takes forever to get in. I mean it’s understandable though because the Cast Members have to take a photo of all the new guests (and they do a great job at goin as fast they can) but the process sometimes just doesn’t allow for many people to get in

                              So, on Sunday night it was looking like there would be a So Cal Storm on Thursday, and clearing up by late Thursday Night. But the latest model from this morning's news, indicates that the Rain will start in Anaheim at around 8:00 PM Thursday night, and continue through to 9:00 AM Friday Morning. The main part passing between Midnight & 6:00 AM. Unfortunately there's almost 3 days for it to slow further, which would have a direct impact on Friday morning. I suppose that would likely lessen the crowds, but make it a little more miserable for those who show up early.

                                I was planning on doing the same thing.

                                    For me, it's not about getting to go on it first. Believe it or not, it's the adventure of it all. I rarely do these first day openings, but it sounds like a lot of fun! I'll be documenting it for sure.

                                      Just looked at the weather hour by hour on Friday. No rain from 4am - park closing. So that's good.

                                        When does the Mickey and Friends parking lot open up? I'll probably just go there when that opens and then wait in line til the park opens and take my chances.
