I originally had a 9:05 and switched to 8:30 for that very reason. Of course when I explained this reasoning to DH he looked at me like I had 2 heads!! I went ahead and switched it to 10:20 so that we can get some riding in at RD. It's our last park day and there are evening magic hours so I expect it to really get busy in the afternoon.I am totally new at this so bear that in mind, but...on one of our MK days I am hoping for an early CRT res. just so I can get a great family photo in front of the castle with few strangers in the background. Would that play into your decision at all?
