Pandora Strategy

The forgotten park

Pandora Strategy

Postby bcrook » Sat Apr 15, 2017 3:20 pm

This is a fairly good article that illustrates an understanding of the problem. Plus, you know how excited I get when someone talks about hourly capacity rates.

I guess I will see if I can book a dining package for Rivers of Light. I just might be too late.

I may end up just buying a 3 day non hopper pass right now for me, and use my Chase Visa points to pay for it. It looks like I am going to skip MK and DHS.
Then I will go an explore Universal for the other days.

If I buy a 3 day park pass right now, can I just add on the hopper when I am there if I decide to use it?

Also, someone please remind me, can I add on a 4 day to my ticket if I want? I did that at Disneyland.

Yes and Yes. And I can say that with total confidence because Disney will never refuse to take additional money :)

As long as you do so before the tickets expire. If you want to add Hoppers it's best to do so on the first day of use because I think they charge the same no matter when you add it to your active ticket.

Thanks. I think I'm going to try and make the cheapest option work for this trip.

June 12-16. I found tiffins dinner packages available all week. Things don't seem to be too frantic around Pandora. The group I'm traveling with says there are plenty of FP+ Available.

I'm going by myself to meet up with about 15 other people.

Have fun. Let us know how it all goes. Our trip is July 6-12. So far, I think WDW might have overestimated the drawing power of Pandora.

I hope less than stellar attendance this year doesn't affect Star Wars...

I'm basically flying down to have fun with friends, most will take place at the resorts. But I am scouting Pandora just so I know for the food and wine adventure in October. And to see diagon alley.

Well, I couldn't figure out how to use my Chase Visa points to buy a ticket, so I just purchased a Gold Annual Pass for $595.00. It will be cheaper in the long run and give more flexibility. But, WOW! That is a slam on my vacation account. I am glad I didn't have to buy one for my wife and kids too! :lol:

Now I can start booking FP+ just for the hell of it. :mrgreen:

LOL! Oh, but you might be depriving some poor family of their long-anticipated FP's for 7DMT if you book any you might end up not using ;)
