And do you already have TSMM or ASS? If so, remember you need to modify those to see Slinky, and it won’t show you times that clash with your other FPs.
I did that with FOP. I had them booked on Navi and modified to get FOP. I also have them on TSM and will try to modify to get SDD.

Don't give up, I recently went up just for the day last Tuesday. Total last minute trip so booked fast passes 2 days before. An hour before we left just decided to switch some times around and a SDD was open for 1:15 and I was totally shocked seeing as I couldn't snag one at 7am 60 days out for my December trip

I agree - just keep checking. At 60 days I could only get SDD on one day towards the end of my trip around 6PM. But I would go back and check every once in a while, and last week I found it available at 10 AM earlier in the week. I am keeping my fingers crossed for you!

One acronym that seems to be popular is “AS2”, given that it does feel wrong to make posts about “riding ASS”.

I have to think that somewhere in the Disney hierarchy is someone who is laughing their head off, thinking "I can't believe they actually used that name -- I was joking!!"

OK, now that I have SDD, the only one left that I couldn't get is FOP. I read all about rope drop for FOP, and even watched the video on TouringPlans about it. The consensus seems to be that for a 9 am opening, people tend to start boarding FOP well before 9 am - maybe 8:40 or so, roughly speaking. Most folks report being able to ride FOP, have a not-too-bad wait for Navi, and then move on from there.

I have a TouringPlans subscription so I created a plan for my AK day, which is a crowd level of 1. With FOP as the very first, ride, it is showing a wait time of 87 minutes. But is that correct for a person who arrives at 8 am? There doesn't seem to be a way in TouringPlans to account for arriving an hour before rope drop and being let in a few minutes early, which seems to be the custom. No matter when I arrive, it has me arriving at FOP at 9:07 and waiting 87 minutes from that point.

Should I really plan for that, or if not, for those who have done this, what would be a reasonable wait expectation for someone arriving an hour before rope drop on a Level 1 crowd day?

Thanks as always!
