Avoid parks with After Hours and Extended evening hours?

We are going to WDW 1/21-1/29. Should I avoid going to parks that have After Hours and Deluxe Extended Evening Hours?

I don’t think either set of hours has in any way impacted crowd behavior.

Parties impact crowd behavior to the opposite of what you are suggesting here. Which is to say if there is a party planned and you’re not going to the party, it’s a good day to visit the park because crowds are typically lower due to earlier closure.

But after hours and Deluxe hours have not seemed to have an effect.


Any rumors on if there will be after hours this September 2023?? I see they have Epcot until the end of Aug. I’d love to do any park after hours on Saturday the 9th. Fingers crossed. We are already doing MNSSHP the 8th and HHN the 10th. I really miss AK after hours but Epcot would be cool too. I can’t believe how much tickets went up. 2 day park hoppers are over 700 for 2 people. I’d rather just do night events lol.
