    Read conflicting answers.... no kids, going 3rd wk of Sept. 8 day hopper w/water... wondering if I should avoid or use AM and PM Extra Magic Hours? Wondering if it would be best to avoid. Pros and cons?

    Hi Amy,

    September is a great time to visit Disney World!  The crowds are typically very light, and the weather is still hot for those who enjoy summer-like temperatures.  With no children and park hoppers, you can be fairly flexible in your touring plans.

    If you an early riser, I recommend taking advantage of the extra magic hours in the morning.  You'll be able to see a lot of attractions during that time with very little wait time.  If you notice that the park starts to get crowded mid-morning, take advantage of your hopper pass and go to another park for the rest of the day; you'll find that the crowds are lighter in the parks that don't have extended hours.

    I'm usually exhausted by the end of the evening, but if you have the energy to keep on going, you may want to enjoy a few evening extra magic hours as well.  If we go to these, we usually only go for the extended hours.  I don't recommend spending your entire day in a park with evening extra magic hours -- they tend to feel quite crowded.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!

After spending 25 years in RI, my husband and I relocated to GA with our youngest, who is now in high school. I took my first trip to Walt Disney World when I was 11 and I have traveled many times since then with all different party sizes. From creating our first itinerary as a honeymooner to later creating magical experiences for our multigenerational family gatherings, every aspect of planning a vacation has been pure joy to me.  Learn More About Diane
