    What day would be less busy to visit Animal Kingdom: Monday Nov.13 even though they have early magic hours and we're not staying with Disney or Sat/Sun Nov. 11/12? How much busier does it get with Early Magic Hours? Thanks!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Amy! You’re going to love a cool weather jaunt down to Walt Disney World Resort!  You’re days away from an amazing vacation.

    Whenever I’m looking to choose a park for a vacation day, I always consult Undercover Tourist’s Crowd Calendar. When I locate my vacation dates on their calendar, I can see how crowded any given park will be on a scale of 1-10. I find it to be incredibly accurate, and extremely helpful when I’m planning. I’ve talked my family into one park over another based on these estimated results and always been happy with my findings. That being said, part of the formula used to estimate crowds are Extra Magic Hours. Yes, they do increase park crowds either in the morning or in the evenings, whichever hours they are slated to occur. If I’m really wanting to take a spin on Mad Tea Party at Magic Kingdom, but the park has morning Extra Magic Hours, I may try this personal favorite at dusk, when the garden lanterns light up to avoid peak crowds.

    Don’t forget to schedule your FastPass+ reservations to skip the lines and get to the fun faster than Hatter to the Tea Party. If I can help you further with your vacation, please let me know. We’ll paint the roses red! ~ Lindsey P.
