We’re going to MGM on May 25th (a Wednesday) … below is our itin (very light, since we’re not real interested in Backlot Tour or the Stunt Shows, or even Star Tours really), so I’m trying to figure the best time to do each of this so I can figure out the best time to make our PS for Mom’s. Any of you creative/analytical types wanna help out?
Here’s the schematics…
[I]***NOTE: We’re staying off-site so no Disney extras for us. We’re on a budget so we can’t really afford the big bonus meals. No park hoppers either as we only have a Fl res 3 day pass, so one park per day. We have me, my BF, DD-15, DD-5, my best friend and her DD-12, my brother and his GF. This itin is mostly for me and my DD-5, and whoever else wants to come, everyone else can do their own thing.[/I]
9:00AM: Arrrive at MGM for rope drop. Go to Guest relations to get Birthday pin for my younger brother so he can be noticed all day :ninja: The rest of my party (my 15 yo daughter, my best friend and her 11 year old daughter, my brother and his gf) can all do their own thing, this itin would be primarily for me and the youngest, of course using the child switch for RnRc and ToT.
Everyone has told me the best thing to do right off is FP the RnRC and ride the ToT (or vice versa), as I’ve heard that the first rider of the day of ToT gets to ride it alone, get their photo for free, and get a Magical Moments Certificate. So even if I am held back by Guest relations, I’m sure my brother and 15 y/o DD would want to do that.
After that, all I have planned is to character hunt like CRAZY (VILLAINS!!$@!$@!), and do shows for my youngest, more or less. Here are the shows and the times, so I’m trying to figure the best ways to do these shows, and figure the best time to do Mom’s (we have a party of 13 meeting us @ Mom’s for my younger brother’s birthday)
EDIT: I think we got it

8:00 I want to get seats for Fantasmic, maybe Rob will take Shae over the Honey I Shrunk the Kids playset for a few minutes
