    You wanted more info from my last question.We have a park hopper pass and 2 children: 4(girl) and 8(boy). We plan to go to Blizzard Beach on Sat (7/25). Should we split up the days or stay all day at each park? Is EMH in the AM worth it?

    Thank you so much for getting back to me with a follow up question! 

    Let's tackle the Extra Magic Hours first.  I like the morning extra magic hours, because I feel like I can get a few rides out of the way before the park becomes real busy.  It also helps to be there in the morning before the heat of the day - especially in July.  If the park becomes too crowded, I would consider moving to a different park for the afternoon, but I always find the evening extra magic hours - at least the early part of them - can be busy, so I avoid the park with evening extra magic hours if I am going to hop.

    Whether or not you should split the days is going to depend on your kids.  I have a four year old and an eight year old also, and I prefer to stay in one park when possible.  There is some travel time involved, so if I am going to switch parks, it would be from the Magic Kingdom to EPCOT or EPCOT to the Magic Kingdom - that can be done by monorail, so it's easy.  Once my girls are in a park, they come up with a list of the things they want to do, and if I pull them away before the list is complete, I get an argument! 

    I hope you have a wonderful vacation!
