    Hi Moms Panel! Coming back to WDW for 2nd time May 17-23 w/family of 4. Trying to plan our days around crowds, but confused whether or not I should visit a park that has EMH or not? Want to take advantage of EMH, but are the parks that much more crowded?

    Hi Lisa!
    As a general rule, I always advise people to skip ANY park that is having EMH in the morning. The increased crowd levels typically erode any extra ride time that is expected due to arriving early. This is not an exact science, but in my experience, I have found going to NON EMH parks to be more of a benefit as to lower crowd levels and increased ride opportunities. Evening EMHs vary as to whether or not I am willing to go because they do tend to spread people out a bit more and are more worth the effort.
    You need to decide how badly you or your family want to hit a particular EMH, and then decide accordingly. If it's morning, I say skip it...if it's evening, it might be worth a try.
    I hope this helps and I wish you and your family a Magical stay in May!! :)
