Worth noting folks that at the moment evening hours are only on Mondays and Wednesdays and are limited to Epcot and MK.

I had some great nights back in the day when EMH evenings were 3 hours. I remember one night0morning in MK when it was empty for the last hour between 1 and 2am. Circled the park walking on everything.

Once it went to 2 hours it seemed to change, I think they brought the hours earlier in the evening too so more people stayed. I gave up on them in teh end as they started to seem busier than regular evenings.

In fairness the new ones should be a lot better with only one third of the people able to ride rides compared to before. We are early morning rather than late people, but Iím hoping to try it out at Christmas (I know) if itís on and see what itís like.

We are the same, always always there for park opening but struggle to stay out after fireworks.

Our next and likely last trip to Disney will hopefully be to the Yacht Club in 2023, if the Deluxe EMH hours are still a thing then Iím kidding myself saying I might use them as I know exactly what we are like!

You do well to watch the fireworks, itís only near the end of the holiday we manage that usually.

A little afternoon nap at the pool helps with that!

I wonder if DVC owners will get any extra perks? Looks like on-site guests arenít apart from being able to book LL earlier.

With EMH the first 30 to 60 minutes will be busy with non resort guests as anyone can join a ride queue upto the closing time of the park. So if MK closes at 10pm, then as a non deluxe guest I could join the queue at 9.59 and 59 seconds. After the closing time they used to scan magic bands before entry to the line to check you were an onsite guest. It didn't take long for this. Non resort guests are allowed to stay within parks and shops after park close, in fact many people will opt for this as a strategy to avoid packed transport back to their car.

So, it will take a little while for it to feel less busy, but having said all that Disney are known to inflate posted wait times so while it may say 45 minutes wait for Space Mountain it may be more like a 20 minute wait. You've just got to chance it really and some times you will get lucky.

We are debating this at the moment, we currently plan Disney first 5 days, but we'll be too jet lagged for evening hours, although well able to be up at 7am booking in the genie app and also taking advantage of early park openings, wondering if we should move our onsite to the second week of our holiday. To complicate things we're travelling with my brother's family who are planning to stay at Pop.

The problem of onsite in the second week is that if you're booked using the dining offer, your tickets won't be valid until your check in day. But if it's a room only booking, no issue.

Also, naps are your friend those first few days.

We're restricted to school holidays and going Easter, so sadly no dining offer, can't believe we're paying rack rates with no incentives whatsoever!

Naps though, and the transport system is are main incentive for onsite, we won't have a car. We're booked at Beach Club, so do have the pool and easy access to Epcot. Car hire booked for the second week through BA, and I really don't fancy trying to move that, we were originally booked for now and changing took hours and hours.
