Hello Theme Park Insider!
A few years ago, after making a complaint to Walt Disney World Guest Relation, we received "Priority Entrance" (PE) for two attractions for future visit. It is basically similar to a wild card FP+ that I can use at my convenience. I just need to tell them which park / which day (or stop at guest relation in a park) and they will load it on MDE account.
As I have a trip coming soon early 2019, I contacted them again recently to understand how it works and the restrictions. Although I didn't find anything online, CM said that the main restrictions are that I cannot use it in the following attractions:
- Generally in most nighttime shows (Fantasmic!, Rivers of Light, etc.)
- Pandora attractions at AK
- Frozen Ever After at Epcot
- New attractions in TSL at HS
- Mickey Character greeting at MK
As I'm planning my upcoming trip, I'm trying to find the best way to use these. I have arguments for each.
At Animal Kingdom:
Rope drop for Pandora attractions as I cannot use PE there. Daughter wants to see Rivers of Light (wondering if I should get a Tier 2 FP for it). That would leave me one Tier 2 FP for the rest of the day. So maybe I could use a PE for one of the Tier 2 attractions (Everest or Safari).
Get a Tier 1 FP for Frozen, and use PE for one of the Tier 1 attractions (probably Test Track). Although I'm planning to rope drop Epcot on a morning Extra Magic Hour and go straight to Test Track. But I could ride Test Track again later in the day, or use for Soarin (although wait is not as bad anymore).
Will try to get a FP for SDD and I can't use for SDD or Alien anyway, but I can use it for the other Tier 1 attraction (TSMM). I think that's a winner!
Has the largest number of attractions with FP. So an extra wild card FP could be handy. Walk in front of an attraction we want to do with long wait, but don't have a FP for it... No problem with my PE!
So please share your thoughts!
