    Does Hollywood Studios still offer Late EMH? I am going in November and there is only early EMH and looking back to months before its only been early.

    Welcome BACK, Sely!

    I'm excited for your family to come back home, and just in time for the holidays. Fun Fact: Disney's Hollywood Studios is the first park to decorate. In fact, while we're at home counting and sorting our trick-or-treat candy, Santa's Elves start this park's winter transition!

    I hadn't noticed until you pointed it out, but you're right, there aren't any evening Extra Magic Hours at Disney's Hollywood Studios on the upcoming calendar. Part of me wonders if these Cast Members are trying to bank sleep now for when Star Wars - Galaxy's Edge opens in the fall of 2019. I do, however, have some awesome Pro Tips to help maximize your Hollywood Studios fun and lengthen your Disney Days.

    While Park Hours Calendars are posted many months in advance and Extra Magic Hours are set in stone, keep checking back as you get closer to your vacation as closing hours have been known to magically extend. I've had this happen a few times; once I caught it about a month before a visit, but another time I didn't know until I saw a big sign just in front of the turnstiles saying 'Today's Park Closing Hours have been Extended to ___'.

    You can jump in an attraction queue or book a Dining Reservation up until the last possible minute. Disney's inner resort buses run until two hours after closing, so you can take your time at dinner or in the line. Shops will usually stay open for 45 minutes after closing time. And at Disney's Hollywood Studios, the evening nighttime spectaculars sometimes start after the listed closing hours. (Stay for Fantasmic! It's amazing!)

    I hope this helped, Sely, and We'll See You Real Soon!
