Stay on property if you have the dough…then use the early entry to ride as many rides as you can before 10. Get a fastpass for splash mountain early and then come back later in the afternoon when its warmer. When it starts to get busy it’s time to head for CA Adventure. As soon as you get there get a fastpass for Soarin or Grizzly river run. Soarin is a very slow line you don’t want to standby that one.
As soon as you have you FP then head for Toy Story Mania. No fastpasses there so you have to wait. Longest I’ve ever waited is about 40 mins. Usually 25 or so.
If you can’t afford one of the DL hotels then there are several hotels within walking distance right across the street. I’ve stayed at most of them and they are all fine. I like those because you don’t have to depend on shuttles that aren’t anywhere near as dependable as the busses in DW.
Hope that helps.
