    21 days to WDW! 7 & 4 yo boys, was planning to take advantage of Morning EMH and have made dining reservations accordingly. Now I am getting mixed reviews on whether to take advantage of the parks on the day of EMH. I good to go?

    Hi Miranda!  Extra Magic Hours is an awesome perk offered to guests staying at Walt Disney World resorts.  Morning EMH allows guests to enter the parks one hour prior to the general public.   We've always taken advantage of this as we love taking that coveted picture of Cinderella Castle without the masses around it.  Also we are able to experience some attractions without the extended wait.  
    Evening EMH afford guests the ability to continue to enjoy the selected theme park up to three hours after general closing time.  This is where it has gotten a bit leery for us.  While I do love the idea of enjoying Test Track or Big Thunder Mountain Railroad at night, the lines can be somewhat long and the crowds still remain in the park long after closing.  
    In my opinion, EMH are definitely worth it as a perk, but if the lines or crowds aren't to your liking, you can always try it another day.
    Hope this helps you plan your magical vacation!
