    Question Mine Train at rope drop question.

    Good morning all! I really want to ride The Mine Train and FP+s are all gone. What is your opinion on the quickest route to get to the ride once that rope drops? Thank you in advance!!

    Up Main Street hang a right as if going towards the Merida Meet and Greet, then a left at the Tea Cups, the line for Mine Train will be in front of you. Yes, there will probably be a significant line at rope drop.

    Agreed with above. Do NOT go through the castle to get there. If the castle is at 12:00 on the hub, aim for about 1:30-2:00, then L at the teacups. We were at the train station at 8:20 for 9:00 opening on the Right hand entrance, they walked everyone there, we walked straight there and had about a 5 minute wait. By the time we got off, wait was probably 20-30 minutes. Out of the queue area 15 minutes later.

    We missed out on FP+ also for the third week in November. Every day is already booked. Is there a good time in the afternoon people would suggest to ride?

    Continue looking for the fastpass+. An opening may pop up between now and your trip.

    Stay clear of castle, they have a secondary rope in the courtyard that drops a few min later leaving you with a 50+ min wait at 9:05.

    The best time is right before the park closes. Earlier this summer, we were able to ride 7D twice in about a half hour at 11:30 pm.

    The posted wait time was 80 minutes, but the actual wait was 20 the 1st and 10 for the 2nd trip.

    How about during MNSSHP? I also missed out on the FP so am hoping to get to ride it later in the evening.

    Possibly during any parade or fireworks? Just a guess though.

    I would have to agree...going through the castle is not the move to make. Anytime one can part ways with the bulk of the crowd, life and flow gets better. Look for the paths of least resistance.
