I’ve been to WDW four times now, last being back in 2012…well before the new FP+ system and new attractions in several parks. In the past, I used a planning service called TourGuide Mike and one of the main planning principles he used was to avoid going to parks for Extra Morning Hours. The logic behind it was that everyone staying on site (30,000 hotel rooms) would all be going to that park strictly for that one extra hour of morning access, which would end up crowding up the park and making the extra hour useless by having more people there than would normally be.
I’ve always used this principle and not go to parks that have extra morning hours, but would go for Extra evening hours when available, and my plans have always been very efficient.
My plan is to continue to avoid parks with EMH’s (at least not before early evening) and go to another park to avoid crowds.
I would like your opinion on this approach, and whether or not this concept still is sound advice given the restriction on FP’s and addition of insanely popular attractions (FOP, SDD, 7DMT…etc).
