So with the extra EMH across all parks, I got to thinking. Some people were worried about super high crowd levels, but I have some contrary thoughts. I offer them up for review and critique.
During peak times like Christmas, does WDW normally have extra magic hours across multiple parks on the same day?
If not, WDW only has some many rooms and thus even if rooms are booked at the same rate as Christmas this upcoming during Sep/Oct, then they can disperse people across 3 or 4 parks versus funneling everyone into 1, so to speak. So what I am saying, is that for people not going to DHS, then can effectively choose another 2 or 3 parks. It is a dispersal method.
Had WDW not done this, and crowds were bad in DHS, we would be complaining on why they did not plan ahead. I think this is planning ahead to ensure crowd levels are not excessive within a single park.
Maybe disney is still trying to fill up rooms and added another incentive? Even if rooms booked at same pace as Christmas, no need to open all the parks for EEMH if not done normally.
While I am still “upset” for WDW messing up my Sept plans, and I still have to re-think TP because of earlier/later times, I remain optimistic. As I said before, while I expect SW fans to descend upon the parks, it is still a low level time for Americans to travel with the beginning of school. Waiting for the FP rumors to be released…sigh…
I am offsite so will not get any benefit for the EEMH, but I see how hard it is for people to get to the park at 8 am EMH, and now it is even earlier. If anything, I gain an hour jump on my day with minimal impact.
Will practice SDFP for FOP
