    Visiting sept 21-28. with 8PH. Should i take advantage of EMH for AM hours or PM hours. or should I avoid those parks altogether due to crowds?

    Hi Jaime!

    Personally, I LOVE Extra Magic Hours! I would highly encourage you to take advantage of them whenever you can - especially since you'll be there at a time of the year that typically has lower crowds.

    While our family tends to enjoy the extra hours at night, the morning Extra Magic Hours will be among the least crowded times you'll see at the parks. It does take a little extra effort to be an early riser, so the extra hour in the morning can be a great time to tour the parks. You may just find that you can tackle some of your most anticipated rides with much lower wait times than you'd expect!

    If you have older kids or only adults in your party AND everyone likes to sleep in, then I'd say that the Evening Extra Magic Hours are for you! Typically, the nights enjoy up to 3 hours of extra park time with cooler weather and (hopefully) lower crowds. Plus, the parks at night are quite an experience. To me, they even "feel" different with the lights and nighttime ambiance!

    Hope you have a WONDERFUL trip!!
