    Hi Doug. If choosing HS on a night with pm EMH or a night with Fantasmic, which would be the least crowded? Not interested in seeing Fantasmic, daughter was scared by it last time. Thanks so much!!!!


    The answer to your question can change throughout the year, based on how busy Walt Disney World is and other factors. Some general rules include;

    1. Extra Magic Hours give you several extra hours of park time. But if you are going to Walt Disney World during a busier time, that means that there are a lot of other people taking advantage of the extra time, and the crowds are therefore larger.
    2. If you are going to the park on a Fantasmic night, but don't plan on going to the show, that is a good thing. Regardless of crowd size in the park, when the show is underway a large part of the park crowd is diverted to this show. 

    So my basic suggestion is this; if your are there when it is a lighter time of the year, go on the Extra Magic Hour night. If you are there during a busier time and won't go to Fantasmic, go on that night instead.

    If you need more help here, let me know the nights you have to choose from, and I can try again!

    Have a magical vacation!
