It was $12 with tip, a small price to pay — literally. We went to the bus stop intending to take it but when there wasn’t one we just Ubered instead.If I were planning on rope-dropping an It Attraction (FoP, 7DMT, and Slinky B.G.E/Smuggler’s Run A.G.E) I would taxi/Lyft/Uber rather than rely on the buses. If you miss the first bus, you are in trouble.
This is helpful. Thanks.We did 7am AK EMH this morning. Bag Check opened at 6:15. We arrived about 5:45 with Uber, would have been fine by 6am, which is when resort buses started arriving. By 6:15 there was a “crowd” of a hundred or so waiting for bag check. We were third in line at a tapstyle. Entered park at 6:35, among the first to ride FoP, we did that, NRJ 2x and Everest 1x by 8am. It was still a 5min wait at EE when we got off. KRR didn’t open until 9today.
Thanks!I was just looking at my time stamps from when we did EMH with an 8am opening. Arrived at 6:50am, took pic of tree of life at 7:33am, last outside pic of Pandora at 7:41am, first post-ride pic at 8:02am. I took some pictures of the lines from 6:50 on and it wasn't too bad as late as 7:10am. After that, its backed up.
So... I'd get there for 6 am. You can def cover everything you want and be out by 10!
We always ride share to EMM/EMH events.And I'm thinking Uber/Lyft to get to AK??
I'm planning on leaving BW by 5:45 to get to AK this Saturday. Can't wait for that 5:00 alarm to go off...We would not have been OK arriving at 6:30a with a 7am EMH last week. 6-6:15 would have been okay, but arriving at bag check at 6:30 would have put us way behind the folks who were allowed into the park at 6:35 and walked directly to Flight of Passage. For me, getting up an extra 15-30 minutes to eliminate the stress/uncertainty is better than the additional sleep. YMMV.
We have been using rideshares more and more frequently in/around WDW, for the same reason as you, waiting for the bus isn't fun and with Uber/Lyft we can control our departure time.We always ride share to EMM/EMH events.
I never want to spend more time waiting in the morning than I have to. I would rather be sleeping than having to get to the bus stop to wait for who knows how long, may be 5 min, may be 20. I want to remove all possible unknown (within reason)
DGD and I used Uber to HS EMM last week and called for our car 20 min before we wanted to be there. If we'd taken the bus instead, I'd have had to get up at least 30 min before we did (and I had to get up at 5:30 as it was)
