    Doug, thank you so much! I appreciate your answer and think it will help tremendously! Quick question, two of your suggestions fall on EMH days. Should I switch them to avoid that? Or, is Fantasmic day at HS worse than EMH day? Thanks! Love the panel


    Absolutely not! I love Extra Magic Hours in October! By that time of the year they are great, whether morning or evening. Because overall crowd size at Walt Disney World in October is lower than during the busier spring and summer months, you should embrace any Extra Magic Hours you can get to take advantage of!

    As for Fantasmic on an Extra Magic Hours day, yes, there will be a larger than average crowd for that show on those nights, for a variety of reasons. Especially if the show time did not get moved to later than 8pm, you will find more visiting than on a typical other evening. But the change is not so much that you should avoid it on that night. JustĀ get there early to ensure a great seat.

    Have a magical vacation!
