    Doug, Arr. 1st. wk of Aug. what rur thoughts on EMH? I know it's a busy season, but I'd like to avoid huge crowds if possible. I'll be making ADR's in a couple of days & though that I should start planning on what/where/when. I truly appreciate ur opin


    You are going to Walt Disney World at one of the busier times of the year. Extra Magic Hours are going to help you, whether you are using them or now. Here is how;

    1. Avoid morning Extra Magic Hours. I love them during the slow times of the year, as another hour in a park is always a good thing. But in the busier times of the year they draw larger crowds. By selecting another park for that day, you avoid the crowd!
    2. Pursue evening Extra Magic Hours - maybe yes? If you have a family that can stay up to take advantage of the extra evening hours in a park, then definitely go to that park on that day. The added crowd impact is lighter than in the morning, due to families that can't stay up that late. Again, more time in a park is a good thing!
    3. Pursue evening Extra Magic Hours - maybe no? With smaller kids you probably won't get to take full advantage of the evening hours. So avoid those parks too. Again, the crowds go for these parks, so going in another direction will lighten the crowd.

    Have a magical vacation!
