Use early dining to get a Fast Pass?Walt Disney World: Is it possible?
From Joe BrownWe have a character dining scheduled for 8:55AM at Hollywood and Vine in DHS. DHS does not open until 9AM so we will be in the park before opening.

What are the rules regarding those of us in early on getting a Fast Pass? Am I able to leave my dining temporarily to go get a Toy Story Mania Fast Pass?

I would say yes, especially since they do not know where you are going (going to the bathroom or you left something in the car). As long as you have a party that is staying there, you can do it!
From Michael SmithMake sure to stay with your party until you are seated, then go. I don't think they will seat you if your entire party is not there.

From Robert LI think that DHS personnel are stationed at certain areas of the park and you won't be able to get there before the park is officially opened. But good luck if you can.

From Joe BrownHere's how this worked. I left Hollywood and Vine around 5 til rope drop. I alond with other diners had to wait at the end of the street that runs directly from the H and V door. At rope drop we merged with the folks waiting on the main street. There was no running, pushing, etc. There were about 6 TSM CMs that everyone had to stay behind as they lead us to TSM. Everyone had to take the same route as the CMs. I ended up being 4th in line at on of the FP tickets centers.

Now for Tusker House I just got up and went to the FP for the Safari. There really was no structure in place for that. I easily beat all the folks who had to wait for rope drop.
