Hello, I'm a married 38 year old Disneyland fan who visited the parks for the first time 3 years ago. As a costume maker, I love seeing the Disney costumes. Living in Los Angeles, I'm in the parks often. If you see me, say hi.

FPs usually last to 11-12. I prefer to skip the rope drop FP line and just get one after the line does down. 

The only experience I've had with it, is we got in line for fastpasses at around 9am during the week, and it was a quick line but our fastpasses were still out until 4pm I believe.  - BrerPam  516.6 #489 6:57AM
Same - OhanaPhoto  7218.7 #22 5:00PM
The best way to get to ride... get to the park by 7:30. Once in the park get in line for the ride (left hand side). When the parks open you're ready to go! Likely wait time of 20 min or less.  - BRabbit  1082.7 #217 10:30AM
Or zero if you're first to the rope ๐Ÿ˜‰. Then as soon as you get off you go directly to the FP line so you can get on again right away  - DisneyDiane316  4274.9 #44 11:07AM
@DisneyDiane316 I haven't managed to make it to the gates that early yet. Maybe next time.  - BRabbit  1082.7 #217 2:36PM

Depends on your goal. Do you just want to head to a favorite? Or are you trying to ride GOTG? As long as you are through the gate before opening, that's Rope Drop!

If the parks open at 8, we get to the parking structure by 6:30 so we're first at the gate. They open the main gate at 7:30 and we speed walk to the rope. Keep in mind the magic mornings (DL is tues, thurs, sat/ DCA is all other days). We try to hit the park that's opposite of magic morning because there might be a lot of people already in there.  At DL, only Tomorrowland and fantasyland are open for magic morning so we do rope drop at Adventureland and hit Indy first then make our way through NOS then to BTRR. We can get a lot done in the first hour. Monday, we did rope drop at DCA and thought there would already be people lined up for GOTG due to magic morning there, but there weren't. We were first on. Don't know if they just don't have that attraction open for magic morning? Forgot to ask if that was something they always do or what? Hope this helps. It's a lot of info and I'm sure I missed something, but it's a start ๐Ÿ˜Š  - DisneyDiane316  4274.9 #44 6:02PM
I show up a little later. Text DisneyDiane316 to see where they are and meet up with them ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ - Goofytom  5625.9 #29 9:03PM
Yeah, that works too Goofytom ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ - DisneyDiane316  4274.9 #44 5:30PM
Be parked no later than 7:15 AM - picturepassport92  855.7 #265 3:13PM
So you can meet the other MWers that are at the rope already ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‚ - DisneyDiane316  4274.9 #44 6:03PM
Or you can see them in line waiting for the parking structure to open and you can take a selfie with them in their car.  - Taunton  3411.9 #56 7:36PM
That works too Taunton! ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜œ - DisneyDiane316  4274.9 #44 5:33PM

Rope drop to me has always meant having the rope in front of me and no people. It works better especially if you're claustrophobic in a crowd. That way, when the rope drops, you can briskly walk (not run) to the first attraction (such as Indy, or GOTG) and not have to worry about navigating through the slow people.  - DisneyDiane316  4274.9 #44 5:37PM
We usually park a little after 7, and get near the hub around 7:30 and take a bunch of photos and then slowly walk around and enjoy the Main Street atmosphere. Whether you're in front of the horde by the rope itself or near the back by the time the rope drops, the crowd  disperses with everyone running in different directions and that first hour you can do soooo much - FoolishMortal138  816.7 #284 5:57PM
