^Wow it's great to know i'm not the only one who couldn't make out what was in the rafters before the refurb. Thank god I knew what it was meant to be before hand cause otherwise I wouldn't have noticed anything...
I can't speak to that date specifically, but I have some feedback from my visit 1.5 weeks ago.
Assuming you're there opening to close, I think you can do all major e-tickets in a day. If you go with the highest tier paid Fastpass, you will have no issue doing this and can get rerides on everything. I tried it on my first day and it was fantastic for a first time visitor. On my subsequent days, I just used the single rider lines and free Fastpasses. I think I could have ridden all major rides in a single day with this approach provided you do the following:
Single Rider Lines - You can walk onto Hyperspace Mountain, Indiana Jones, and Ratatouille using these. - The single rider line for RC Racer is a crapshoot. I saw it range from a walk-on to an hour. - Crush's Coaster's single rider line was upwards of 60 minutes (not much better than the regular queue).
Fastpass Plan - The Walt Disney Studios and Disneyland Paris Fastpass networks are not connected. This means that you can immediately get a Fastpass for the second park after you get one for the first. This strategy requires a bit of extra walking, but some people prefer this to standing in queue lines.
- Big Thunder Mountain and Peter Pan will run out of Fastpasses the quickest. Peter Pan was usually out by mid-afternoon and Big Thunder Mountain followed shortly.
Touring Plan for the Non-Fastpass Rides - The Fantasyland rides close 1-2 hours before park closing to accommodate the fireworks. Outside of Peter Pan, most of these dark rides will have waits less than 5-10 minutes the first hour of the day. The lines do lighten up near closing, but you risk finding the ride closed. Snow White, Peter Pan, and Pinocchio are near clones of the California and Japan ones if you've ridden them already.
- The Studios cleared out significantly the last hour of the day. Most rides were under 15 minutes the last hour of the day. The exception was Crush's Coaster which still had a full queue. If you weren't lucky with RC Racer's single rider line, near closing is the best time to hit it.
