    Are the extra evening hours typically very crowded? We tend to be night owls, not early birds ;)! Will we get to ride the popular attractions if we go later and stay later at MK, HS...?


    Evening Extra Magic hours are typically a great way to get more rides in thanks to lighter crowds.

    Now during the busiest summer and holiday times, the extra time actually packs the crowds in, so you might face some bad crowds. But in moderate or lighter times of the year they are really great.

    Regardless of the when in the year you go, as the evening progresses, and as the families with the younger children eventually peel away to get back to their resorts, the lines get shorter and shorter. This all works in your favor, of course.

    So my advice is that almost any time of the year, the Evening Extra Magic Hours are a good way to get the most out of your vacation dollar. The exception would be during busy season weekend nights, when the allure of the extra time creates a pretty packed scene.

    If you write me back with the specific dates of your travel, I can offer up more specific recommendations.

    Have a magical vacation!
