    My family is arriving on 1/22. The MKingdom Extra Magic Hours are 1/23(open til 12a).People advise NOT to go on the extra magic hour days because of crowds.Will it be bad in Jan? I don't have park hoppers, so we have to stay where we are.

    HI Susan,

    While you may have an overlap of guests visiting for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, I think the overall crowds should be on the lighter side (woot!).  Because of this, I think beginning your day at a park that offers morning Extra Magic Hours probably won't be too bad.  However to be safe, I think I'd personally go ahead and pick a park that doesn't offer Extra Magic Hours that day. I have found that the park with Extra Magic Hours do become more crowded regardless of the time of year we visit.  

    Thank you for the question; please let us know if we can help again.

    Have a magical trip!!
