We will be in the parks tomorrow! We are coming from Phoenix, Arizona AND we need some advice! Should we get up at 2am and be there at 8am for the park opening or leave at 5:30am an get there around noon? Should we try to go to a day of Disney on very little sleep? It sacrifice park time?

I would get up early and get to the park early. You can always take a nap midday and then go back to the parks at night. We are from Mesa, and this is how we do it. Enjoy your trip and please post lots of pics. Safe travels. - DisneyGrandma  877.2 #210 10:48AM
Get up early, get in your favorite attractions early and take advantage of FP's while they are available. Take a nap in the car during the busy afternoon. Then you'll be ready for a pleasant Disney evening. - MoonWillow  381.3 #589 11:07AM
Yes morning is best. You can ride most rides while it's not busy and get your FP's. By noon it will be packed! Have a great time! - ShariRenee  8577.7 #9 11:09AM
You can nap later in the lobby of the Grand Californian. - alankeno  57.8 #4483 11:13AM

Doing the same thing Saturday but we will be leaving at 4 since that's the time I get up for work anyway. The rest of the family will probably sleep all the way there. We plan to roll in by 9. Don't forget you gain an hour on the way there. - ssmatik  1.3 #64992 11:32AM
Yes, the earlier the better but be careful. Careful driving sleepy and just make sure you take that nap, eat and drink water. Those are all ingredients for a headache. Headaches at DL suck. Take Advil just in case and make sure you have coffe or an energy drink for the drive. And I assume your not driving home the same day right? Have fun! - philliprocks  1319.2 #132 11:47AM
Ya we are there for the weekend! - landoversky  100.2 #3594 11:49AM
the park is beautiful and peaceful in the early morning. - ElSuperRaton  4469.4 #31 11:48AM
