    We'll be at WDW for 4 days in late January, arriving late Friday afternoon, with park hopper passes. To maximize rides, would you recommend late nights at MK Friday & Saturday, or early morning Extra Magic hours at HS and AK on Saturday and Sunday

    Hi there Michael!

    How exciting to be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort in late January!  By having the Park Hopper Option, you will definitely find that you have more flexibility when touring the parks. Having recently visited over Thanksgiving week, I found the wait times to be much longer than during previous visits especially at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Based on my own personal experience, I would recommend taking advantage of Extra Magic Hours (Morning) in order to ride several of the attractions with little to no wait.  If you find the park becomes crowded, you can always hop to another park. 

    I hope this information is helpful to you. Please don't hesitate to stop by again with any additional questions that you may have. Best wishes for a magical trip, Michael!

    Happy Travels,
