After learning more about the three-part interactive queue, two of which guests with FastPass bypass, we have decided to take our chances and experience the new ride without FastPass+. The plan is to head there immediately after rope drop on an extra magic hours morning. It may be us and hundreds of other guests, but it is also okay that they get a little bit ahead of us. Why? Because if other guests get in front of us and fill up the queue, we get to have some time with the interactive portions of the queue.
We want to experience the new interactive queue and it can be both frustrating and exhilarating to have to walk right past all of those elements because you are some of the first in the line. It's like having to quickly walk past Mr. Potato Head in the Toy Story Midway Mania queue because you are some of the first on the ride. If you take a little bit of time and let others in front of you, you can find the just right spot in the queue to experience all of the elements, but not rush, and still ride the ride in a timely manner with minimal wait. Part art, part science, all timing. . . Disney timing!
