What would you do

So I had our plan completely refined and on double checking this morning there's now a special MK ticketed event on our first morning at MK.

I had a BOG 8am reservation that morning, but I can see the event runs 7.45-10 so is there any point going now for what I thought would give us a bit of quiet time after BOG to ride SDMT etc. before park opening?

We are going on our 2nd morning too (as it's the first day for family we are meeting there) so I'm not too concerned as we have another 8am booking later in the week too but I'm just a bit as we will be up early so want to make the most of it - Epcot is our least favourite too (EMH that morning)and Seaworld seems a waste (opens at 9am) when we are up early ready to go usually at about 6/7am.

Am assuming there will be an extra few hundred people at the event or am I wrong?

Would you still go regardless?

I'd still go. Though you cannot ride SDMT before park opening (only the Early morning event payers can - and even if this wasn't on, you couldn't ride before park opening time.)
You can finish brekkie by 845 and be in line for 7DMT for the usual opening at 9. It will still be reasonably quiet and you will get on quite quickly. Perhaps even twice.

We had early breakfast at BOG then waited in line for the mine train. There were people who had early entry walking around finishing their rides.

Yes, I'd still go (although I've never booked an 8am breakfast).

The event may attract a couple of thousand people - that's the guesstimate with regards how many tickets are available for these events. But even so the park will be quiet and the queues will be short at 9am. On an average day there are around 55,000 people in MK - so 2,000 people will seem very quiet in comparison.

Remember that even on a normal day there will be over a thousand people attending early breakfasts at the MK restaurants and leaving just before 9am to get to the rides like yourself. BOG itself can take 500 guests at a time, Crystal Palace probably has a similar capacity with CRT having slightly less.

Hi Justmagical, was just wondering what date you were looking at for the MK ticketed event? Your countdown looks similar to ours.

BOG breakfast is rubbish and its only worth doing IMO if it gets you on Mine Train.
