I'm hoping that things will lighten up enough to let us in to the parks around dinnertime. There's no way I can stay in one park for the whole day without leaving to take a break. I just hope we'll be able to get back in... we have a few ADRs for dinner at Epcot.

I was not planning to stay all day. I was hoping to get there for rope drop and then going back to the poly and then going back at night. I can't stay in a park all day or you all would have to come and find we laying in the walk way!

That would be cutting it too close for me with a 7am opening.

Does anyone know what they serve before 6:30am? Like the grab-n-go things like yogurt or sandwiches?

I went and got pop tarts and the small boxes of cereal in case we need to be somewhere else earlier. All I have left to buy is spoons, bowls, and milk (half gallon from the little store there). I just like to be prepared. I was the same way on our first trip to vegas. LOL

I always stock up like that when we drive to Disneyland (and throw a case or two of water in the car, too). Since we're flying and I can't do that, we're staying CL. But they don't serve breakfast until 7am! So we'll either take out something the morning before and keep it in the frig or go to CC's and check out the grab'n'go. We're only planning on two MK early mornings, and we'll have either a late breakfast or an early lunch on those days, since there's no time for a good breakfast.

When the MK opens at 7am, do people really line up 45 mins before rope-drop?

That is a good question mmmears. I need to know that too so we can get there early. I was looking at the weather and it was cool there today and tomorrow. Which would make sense to why the parks where so crowded because they couldn't go to the water parks because of the cool weather. It's just a guess and from what I read online. I see the weather is going to be great when we get there.

I noticed that about the weather, too. Hopefully it will be nice the whole time we're there! We have 2 waterpark days planned, but hope to spend the afternoons on those other days out by the pools, and napping (the parks are open really, really late this time -- I don't think we can stay up that late!)

I seriously regretted opening that crowd thread. I had to close it and walk away. It totally stressed me out.

When we were there in 2006 and the MK EMH opening was at 7, we would get there around 6:50 and there were no real lines. We have some pictures of us in the park with almost no people around us. I think getting there 45 minutes early for 7am EMH is a bit too early.

It stressed me out and I'm not going until May. Made me really think about checking out RideMax, but we have a Mac. There was somebody who used RideMax and they were able to go on quite a few things. I guess you'll have to use EMH whether you like it or not, take breaks, and drink lots of Pina Colavas. I really feel for the people staying off-site.

That's good to hear... I don't think I want to be there at 6:15 in the morning on my vacation...

Hi guys!

I got this info off of the WDWInfo website. It lists dining options (including breakfast at MK and also special events happening there. http://www.wdwinfo.com/holidays/easter.htm

This should help all of us out re: breakfast!

We should be fine as long as we get there early and then arrive again later on. And don't worry kandcmch, our first trip was over Spring Break and we not only survived but kept coming back! (We do tend to prefer August though - the crowds are a LOT lower. )
