    I was just wondering how everyone tackles the parks. Do you wake up early, get to the park in the morning and stay the full day doing all the rides you can? or do you get there whenever you feel like it, do a few things knowing you can go back another day?

    We vary. We used to just get on whichever bus came first, but now with needing ADRs and with the introduction of FP+, I think we'll need to plan more.

    We tend to get there when we get there, gone are the days of making sure we are there for the rope drop

    I don't know if it's age or the fact that we aren't worried about the rides, if there is a short line, then we will go on it, if not we will see what it's like the next day.

    We don't tend to plan anymore, we just decide each morning what we'd like to do.

    we generally get there at rope drop then leave for or after lunch if it's hot. We go and have a break - swim- shop etc then go back in the evening. I don't have the stamina to do all day

    I love getting there for rope drop... can get so much done before all the crowds turn up then come lunchtime I'm done and ready for a swim in the pool. Only go in the evenings to see the fireworks. I've done all the rides I want to now so I mainly soak up the atmosphere now.

    Usually go around 9am until closing. We stay all day unless we have seats booked for CdS which we watch each December......but usually do AK on that day so it doesn't really matter if we leave at tea time we won't be missing any park shows or parades and they come way above the rides for me.

    We rarely spend an entire day in the park. Most of our ADRs are outside in resorts. Now, with FP+, since we don't do a lot of rides, there is even less reason to be there at rope drop. On our recent trip we had 3 days that we never set foot in a park.

    We were the same John, we were there for 4 weeks and I reckon we went to the Parks for 2 weeks, it may have been less.

    We tend to go whenever we feel like it. That's the beauty of the AP for us. I don't feel like I need to be in the park from opening to close. Sometimes we are.

    Ha! Me too! I stayed for two weeks at Palm summat or other (I forget) and didn't see Disney once or Universal! It was weird and hard but we just wanted to chill that time.
