How Extra Magic Hours Affect Crowds.


Extra Magic Hours (EMH) always increase the crowd levels in the park by quite some margin. With thousands of on-site hotel rooms each having multiple guests that is a potential massive crowd that could be heading for the same park, the one that has EMH that particular day.

Should you visit a park that has Extra Magic Hours.


Only if you are staying on-site and can take advantage of EMH.
Morning EMH.
Get to the park just before the EMH time, factor in travel time, especially at the Magic Kingdom where you may have to wait for a tram then either monorail or ferry once you have arrived.

Our advice is to use EMH in the morning and if you can, park hop to another park later in the day. Most people who use morning EMH have a tendency to stay in the one park all day. So as other guests come in to the park after official opening time the park gets more and more crowded.

Evening EMH
Most guests that are on-site and want to take advantage of evening EMH will head to the park that has eveing EMH first thing in the morning and stay in the park all day ready to take advantage of the evening EMH when it comes around.

Our advice is to take advantage of evening EMH more affectively by going to a park that doesn't have EMH that day then later in the evening park hop to the park that is offering evening EMH. This way you avoid the crowds during the day in the EMH park but can take advantage of the lower crowds during the actual Extra Magic Hour.
