Disney World Quick Tips – Start Early, Leave Early
How do you find this type of non crowd shot at the Magic Kingdom? You start early! A lot of people love the evening Extra Magic Hours (EMH) and see them as an opportunity to really maximize their touring. I’ve tried both morning and evening hours and have found the morning hour to be more productive than the evening. It’s the same if you just go at “rope drop” even if there are no early Extra Magic Hours. All attractions are virtual “walk ons” and lines simply do not exist.
There is a bit of caution here, as the day progresses, you will notice the crowds increasing. This is of particular importance if you go early to a park that will have Extra Magic Hours that evening. We have found that going early to a park (with evening EMH) is wonderful because the night owls arrive late keeping the crowds down a bit later into the day. Generally about noon we head out of the EMH park and head for one without the extra hours. Those parks are generally less crowded. One hint: if you can, try to go to a park that had EMH the night before and the crowds will be at a minimum. This is not a 100% guarantee but you have stacked all of the odds in your favor.
I think that if you are not a night owl and want to maximize your touring while getting plenty of rest each night, try some of these hints. This type of plan will help you enjoy your vacation without crashing from sheer exhaustion. I’m sure you will find this helpful. As always, enjoy your visit to Walt Disney World!!
