We’re visiting WDW for the first time this April, we’re staying onsite, FPP window opens in a fortnight. A switch in EMH has scuppered my perfectly laid plans (!) and am now wondering which day to go to MK and which for DHS. The options are:
Tuesday 9th April:
MK - no EMH, we have ppo BOG at 8.10, hours 9-10. Tuesdays are normally EMM at MK but haven’t been announced yet for April. CL predicted at 6.
DHS - no EMH. 9-8.30. CL predicted at 5.
Friday 12th April:
MK - no EMH, we have ppo BOG at 8.05, hours 9-10. CL predicted at 7.
DHS - morning EMH, so hours for us 8-8.30. CL predicted at 8.
We will not be staying for evening shows for either day, I’d imagine the plan is to be there for rope drop and to keep going as long as tempers last! We are planning to return to the parks again the following week for evening shows and to revisit any favourite rides and mop up things we’ve missed.
If I thought the hours would remain as they are I would go for DHS on the Tuesday as I’ve heard EMH (as per the Friday) crowds really overwhelm the park and make it uncomfortably busy. However, we really want to do the TSL rides and Jedi training so maybe having the extra hour earlier would be useful?
I’m assuming it’s unlikely that MK will add EMH on the Friday but they might move general opening to 8am in which case our BOG reservation advantage will be lost. There’s also a possibility that EMM will be added to the Tuesday in MK but others have said that the crowds will be starting to move from Fantasyland to other parts of the parks and we should be in a good position to get in queues for either Peter Pan or 7 Dwarves…
Anyone have any insights about how the hours might change for those days or any other tips would be gratefully received.
Thanks for any help, Brizz
