    Looking for thoughts about a.m. EMH at Epcot. Only 5 attractions in Future World open early. I know that EMH usually make the park more crowded. We're going either 4/28 or 4/29 - predicted low crowds either day. Will the a.m. EMH on 4/29 matter much? Thx!

    Extra magic hours (EMH) draw a variety of opinions, but for us we are devoted to using EMH in the morning while opting to skip the evening hours.  

    When we go to Epcot for EMH, my husband goes directly to Test Track to get fast passes while the rest of us slowly wander over to Soarin where we meet up.  We then ride it ASAP and sometimes can even ride it a second time with little to no wait.  We then enjoy the other nearby attractions as well as stops in Innoventions and Mousegears with very few people around.  By the that time, our fast pass entrance time is usually open so we enjoy walking onto Test Track.  Sometimes my husband and sons then ride Mission Space, too, at that time (I'm too scared of the ride!) if the wait is minimal.   We do skip Spaceship Earth for later in the day when we are exiting the park

    So for us, it is worth it to enjoy a majority of the offerings in Future World at Epcot with little to no waits.  Oftentimes because Epcot can handle crowds well, we will continue onto the World Showcase.  While at the other parks we usually hop over to another park after enjoying the smaller crowds during EMH since it does always seem that the EMH park becomes overly crowded.
