3. Rope drop if you can
Whether or not you choose to stay on property, rope dropping the parks is the best way to maximize your time. I normally rope drop Magic Kingdom because I know there’s a lot I want to do and the lines get very long very quick. The lines tend to be very short in the beginning of the day, which is the perfect time to ride attractions that tend to have a lengthy wait time, such as Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Space Mountain or Peter Pan’s Flight.
