    Our trip is 8/25-8/31. Planning on HS on 8/27, EP on 8/28, AK on 8/29 and MK on 8/30. Should we change that to avoid the morning EMH? DS is 8 years old.No park hopper this time.

    Hi Kim!

    Generally speaking, the park that offers Morning Extra Magic Hours generally experiences larger crowds during the day than it usually would.  Thus in general I would recommend skipping the parks that are offering Morning EMH especially if you don't plan to be there immediately at park opening anyways.  However, that said, the end of August is generally not that busy.  Thus you could leave everything as is or you could change it slightly.  If you want to change it to avoid what small crowds are expected, I suggest the following:

    Sunday, August 26 - Epcot
    Monday, August 27 - Epcot
    Tuesday, August 28 - Magic Kingdom or Hollywood Studios
    Wednesday, August 29 - Hollywood Studios or Magic Kingdom
    Thursday, August 30 - Animal Kingdom

    On Tuesday and Wednesday I listed two parks on each day because I don't think it matters that much because the expected crowd level in Walt Disney World will be low.

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
