    My family is going to WDW 7/22/12-7/27/12. Should we avoid the parks with extra magic hours? What parks are the best for each day?

    Hi Melissa!!!

    Thank you so much for your question!!

    If you are not planning on (or can't) utilizing the Extra Magic Hours each day, I would recommend not going to that particular theme park that day.  This is especially true with Morning Extra Magic Hours.  You will usually find the crowds very heavy when the park opens up at it's normal time.  For Evening Extra Magic Hours it isn't as necessary to stay away from that theme park.  The crowds would have already started dwindling in the evening, so you will not see as much of a crowd in the evening as you would in the morning. 

    I would say overall that your best parks for each day are going to be Epcot and Disney's Animal Kingdom.  I would predict that the Magic Kingdom and Disney's Hollywood Studios would be the most crowded parks.  I would recommend going to those parks in the middle of the week on either Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday.  The crowds at the Magic Kingdom and Disney's Hollywood Studios are usually more heavy on the weekends.

    Please let me know if you have any other questions!!

    Have a magical trip!!
