    I have heard that parks with EMH are busier. As we are travelling with three under 5, I would like to avoid these parks. However, on one day I need to choose either DHS with night time EMH or Animal Kingdom with morning EMH. Which park to choose?

    Hi Kelly - I think it probably depends on whether or not you have a park hopper ticket.

    In general, I find that Animal Kingdom is more of a half-day park.  I usually arrive when it opens and leave right after lunch.  If you have the hopper option, and plan to arrive right at the early opening, you can finish the park even quicker and head out to another park sooner.

    However, if you don't have a hopper, you may want to go to Disney's Hollywood Studios instead.  I find that Animal Kingdom does get very busy when it has Extra Magic Hours.

    I hope that helps in your decision making.  Have a great vacation!
