    We're early risers, but I'm wondering what makes more sense - getting to the park an hour before it opens to wait in line, or arrive around when the park opens in hopes that those waiting in line have already entered? What's the best strategy?

    Hi Megan!!

    The earlier you arrive at your desired theme park, the quicker you will be able to enter the theme park and start enjoying attractions and shows with very little wait time.  I would recommend arriving to the theme parks at least 30 minutes before opening in the morning.  If you arrive at the time the theme parks open, then there will be a lot of people already ahead of you inside the park.  It is amazing what 30-45 minutes can do for you in the mornings at the theme parks.  

    I hope this helps and that you have a magical day!
