    At DW 9/25-9/30 with 8,7,5,3 y.o. Signed up at touringplans. The very low crowd parks on each day are ones without EMH. Is it crazy to pass up EMH or no big deal- better to stick to low crowd parks each day? EG HS has EMH 9/28 but high crowd day (5.8/10).

    Hi Melinda!

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

    I am a huge fan of the independent website TouringPlans.com.  I have tested several of their plans personally and routinely help to collect wait time data for them.

    That said, you are going during a relatively low crowd time frame.  My recommendation is to go to Extra Magic Hours if you can get up in time to be at the park holding the Morning Extra Magic Hour (EMH) at least 30 minutes before EMH starts.  If you can't get there that early then I suggest skipping the park with Morning EMH.  That is because Morning EMH does draw Walt Disney World Resort guests making that park more crowded than it would be if it wasn't holding Morning EMH.  Another option is to have the Park Hopper option on your Magic Your Way tickets and the just hop to another park mid-day.

    I hope this helps!  Please write back if you have any more questions!
