As I have just seen in another thread that a lot of rides appear to be closing early,:sad1: I was thinking how I must really make the most of EMH.

Then I got to thinking about how if the ride closures are a cost cutting measure, what rides will actually be available during EMH?:confused3

I wondered if there was a list available or if someone has just returned they may be able to enlighten me!princess:

Cheers for your help.

we were there last week (28th-31st), and emh was only in Disneyland Parkand was for 2 hours 8am - 10am. If I remember correctly frontierland and adventureland were closed, fantasyland was open but not everything - infact Pinnochio or Snow white didn't open until 3pm cant remember which one (might have been both), I'm sure Space Mountain was open. I have to say we were very disappointed with emh and the opening hours of the rides generally, I agree with you I think it is definely a money saving exercise.

We were in Disney from July 22nd - July 31st and the EMH were from 8am - 10am in the main park. Only Fantasyland and Discoveryland were open, the other two lands opened at 10am.

In Discoveryland Buzz Lightyear, Orbiton and Space Mountain were open on a regular basis. In Fantasyland it was Peter Pan, Dumbo, Teacups and the Carrousel some of the shops in Fantasyland didn't open til 11am but the majority opened at 10am.
On Main Street Plaza Gardens, Market House Deli and Cable Car Bake Shop were open, some shops (Emporium) were open but others didn't open until 10am.
This is more or less the same EMH rides that were open last year in July when we went.

Yes it was the same this week - the only difference since EMH started 2 years ago is that Pinnichio or Snow White used to be open as well. They trialled evening EMH but this didnt work as well.

Get there for as soon after 8 as you can and its worth it as you'll get several rides on the ones that are open and then get in a good position for rope drop at the other lands

Yes we were positioned for Frontierland - we grabbed a fastpass for BTM then rode Indiana Jones and Phantom Manor, then went back to BTM for the fastpass. :yay:

Cheers for all the tips, I'm just stressing as it is getting so close. I'm worrying that being a busy August weekend and with the weird ride opening times, we won't be able to do everything we want. :headache:

Now I'm cross as the swimming pool will not be open until 3pm and we were planning on swimming earlier than that in the afternoon so my youngest DS will nap before dinner. I think i just need to chill out a bit and just go with it.:hippie:
