Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel

  • Does it really make sense to choose which parks to visit based on their Extra Magic Hours? Or would this actually make for higher crowds during these times? Perhaps the non-EMH parks would actually have less traffic and make for a better time? Thoughts?

  • Hi Sara!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    In general, the park that is offering Morning Extra Magic Hour will be more crowded than it would have been if it wasn't offering Morning Extra Magic Hour.  If you can't be there right when Morning Extra Magic Hour starts then I would definitely skip that park for the day.  If you can be there right at the start, then it is not so clear.  That's because you can get through a lot of the bottleneck very popular attractions within the first hour or two.  A good compromise is to go to the park offering Morning Extra Magic Hour and then to park hop to another park around lunch time when the original park starts to get crowded.

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
