Which is a better rope drop?

Trying to plan my rope drop days for DHS and AK. They seem to be the ones I’m reading are the craziest. Are there fewer people at the early entry openings for onsite guests or are they just as crowded as a regular opening? (Not the paid ones)

Just as crowded is what I’ve heard. Everyone staying onsite thinks it’s a good idea to go to EMH for a shorter wait and so it ends up just as bad.

Though if you have any 7am openings, those would be slightly lighter crowds.

I mean, probably, but it doesn’t feel that way. A crush of people is a crush of people.

Now, that said, the areas of the park to which the majority of the crowd is NOT heading will be empty or nearly so (noting, of course, that not all rides/attractions are open for morning extra magic hours).
