Please tell me this is a good idea?? (AKam to MKpm)

Our plan is to hit up AK in the AM during EMH. We want to do Everest, Safari, Dinosaur and maybe Nemo @ 11:00am. And then head over to MK for the rest of the day. (We have FP+ at MK starting at 12:15pm for Belle, then Space Mountain, then Haunted Mansion).

Are we crazy? Can we actually do the three rides in AK during EMH *without* FPs? Is it really busy during EMH? We've always stayed off-site so we have no idea how busy it actually is in the EMH parks....

The one problem I see is Nemo. The show is 30 minutes long and because of that I'd place your MK arrival time somewhere between 12:30-1:00pm. If your Belle FP+ is good for 12:15-1:15 you shouldn't have an issue making it, though. As far as getting on EE, KS, and Dinosaur they'll all be more or less walk-ons during AM EMH.

We plan to do EE twice, KS, Dinosaur--all SB, then Flights of Wonder and other animal-oriented activities before heading over to our second park where we will use our FP+s.

1) Are we crazy?

2) Can we actually do the three rides in AK during EMH *without* FPs?

1) No

2) Yes

3) No, you will likely be done with EE, KS, and Dino in the EMH and need something to do from 9-11 before Nemo. AK is my favorite park, and I love FotLK, Flights of Wonder, ITtbaB, and Pangani and Maharajah animal trails, but you would need more time to do all of these. I recommend at least the 10:00 FotLK show. The plan of taking advantage of EMHs and park hopping to another park to use FP+ is usually a good plan.

It is definitely possible. Be sure to get to the gate at least 20 minutes before the park opens. I would recommend going on the safari first thing. It is usually the most popular at that time and more animals will likely be out the earlier you take the safari. Dino would be last ride as it will be walk on for most of the morning.
