    When a park has Extra Magic Hours, historically, is this that day usually a lot busier than usual? We are trying to work out if we are better to not visit park with magic hours and hopefully have shorter wait times, or are we better to have extra hours?

    Hi Roger!

    Yes, historically speaking, parks with Extra Magic Hours (EMH) are usually busier than usual.  My best tip for utilizing EMH are to arrive EARLY and get the attractions on your "must do" list done, and then hop to another park.  This is only feasible if you add the park hopper option to your tickets.  Otherwise, I think your time would be spent more wisely at another park if you want to avoid larger crowds.

    Have a magical vacation!
