I would like to know what your best experience has been with rope dropping and what strategy worked best for you. We rope drop every opportunity we can. We have had the experience of being the first ones at the park at AK and amongst the first 10 at Magic Kingdom. However our most surprising and enjoyable rope drop was at Hollywood studios. We went against the crowd and rope dropped Tower of Terror (first in line). In the rope drop period (they started us early, we were able to do Tower of Terror, Rocking Roller coaster twice and got to Mickey and Minnie's railroad ride before the official park open. We had our first Genie plus for Slinky Dog Dash at 9:30 and our ILL for Rise at 10:15. It was an awesome morning !
