The First 2 Hour Evening Extra Magic Hours
 
It will be Friday at Epcot.
http://wdwent.com/

It looks very "strange" seeing 9:00 PM-11:00 PM instead of 9:00 PM-12:00 AM.

Do you think there is ANY hope the Extra Magic Hours program will "survive" the rollout of FASTPASS+ or has the decision to eventually pahse out EMH entirely already been made?

I agree it will be weird to have such short EMH now :rolleyes1 Heck, I am still upset that they discontinued the characters at night time EMH :furious:

Both of these ideas bum me out!

No characters at EMH?? :furious:

I hope they don't get rid of them...isn't that a big thing they push about staying at a Disney resort? I LOVE EMH!

I don't hold out much hope that EMH will survive. I'd like to think it will - without EMH the park hours at the times of year we go are just painfully short for a family of night owls like mine! - but realistically all signs point to FP+ being the new onsite perk once it is fully functional.

I would be so bummed if it was phased out. I LOVE EMH. We only travel peak holiday weeks and EMH really make the high crowds managable.

We get up early - hit EMH AM
Go back for a nap / swim
Stay up late for EMH PM. Sometime during holidays that is until 2am.

1) I can see 1-hr early morning EMH.
2) I think after-hours EMH is going away.

I would find it hard to believe that the two are connected. Shortening EMH by an hour was a business decision. While there are plenty of visitors passionate about staying to close during EMH, my experience has been that during the last hour CMs outnumber guests.

We have been told EMH is being phased out. At least for the "slower" times of the year. One night, there were 31 people TOTAL at EPCOT. I'm sure those people had a great time, but it doesn't make sense to keep EMH when there are more Cast Members than guests.

Only EPCOT offers characters for Late EMH and it's 3 characters at the Character Spot and HS offers the Disney Jr Dance Party. MK phased them out in 2011. AK did away with it's Late EMH entirely.
