Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- Our trip is early May. Better to have a later bkfst ADR (9:30 or 10) at CRT on an early EMH day or better to have an early ADR (8 am) on a non EMH day? Aren't crowds normally bigger on an EMH day? What would you suggest?? Thanks!

Hi Melissa. Yes, crowds are generally larger on Extra Magic Hour days as resort guests flock to these parks in order to take advantage of the extra time. Its for this reason, that I recommend booking your early dining reservation on a day not having extended morning hours.
I occasionally visit the parks having Extra Magic Hours if I can get through most of the rides during the extra hour plus the first few hours of standard opening time. After that, crowds can get real large as the non-resort guests arrive. Using your example, while you could take advantage of the extra hour, you will find these full crowds in effect after your 9:30 or 10:00 AM breakfast.
However, if you arrange your breakfast before operating hours (8:00 AM), you will be likely be ready by the time the park opens and not be concerned about the crowds associated with the extra magic hours.
