DCA Early Entry & Toy Story
Does anyone know what rides are open during DCA's early entry either for hotel guests or passholders?
Trying to plan which rides will be good to aim for going on first at the 8:00 opening time (that won't already be filled with AP or Early Entry guests). We, unfortunately, are just the general public and can't get in before 8:00.
Hoping we can make a run for Toy Story and it won't already be packed up with people.

Toy Story Midway Mania is open during early entry. The lines right at park opening have been around 20 minutes, growing to 45 in the first hour.

On last Wednesday, we got to TSMM at about 8:20 and there was only a 10 minute wait, however, by the time we were off the line was much larger with a 30 minute wait time. I think that if you are skipping the attempt at FPs for RSRs then, going first thing to TSMM is a great use of time. By 9 a.m. crowds were much heavier.

Thanks everyone. We entered the park at 7:30 on an AP early entry day and lined up about 3 deep from the front of the rope. At 8:00 the whole group was slowly walked by a line of CM's (carrying a gas nozzle/rope to prevent any people from running ahead) to the intersection near Luigi's and Flo's. We broke off at about 8:05 and quickly entered Luigi's. We only had to wait for two rounds on Luigi's and were out of there by 8:15. Then we made a run for Toy Story. We had maybe a 5 min wait for Toy Story. Headed to Grizzly and walked on that one as well (it was already baking hot!).
We already waited for Racers FP two days earlier. By the time we got to Luigi's that day at 8:10, the wait was already at 50 minutes! That was also an AP early entry day.
