True but It was your choice to go to the AM EMH park, that doesn't mean they're awful.

I almost always take advantage of pm EMH. Almost never do for the am hours.

I only go to the nighttime ones at Magic Kingdom. Never mornings, and never any other park (did Epcot once but never left the pub)

Is there a better way to spend it?

I woudn't know...it was useful to learn the pub stayed open during EMH, that was about 4 years ago, there ended up being sort of a wake for the Adventurers Club going on in there.

I stay away from morning EMH. I will sometimes try to do evening EMH, but have found that since I go at off times (Jan/Feb/first week of March), that we have usually seen everything before we get into the EMHs. We might stay for 30-60 minutes and repeat an attraction or two, but could easily do without them.

DS and I always loved PM EMHs at AK, which sadly they've done away with. It was great to ride EE multiple times in a row, though I'll admit that one night I had to stop after my 7th ride as we were in the rear of the train and I definitely got a bit motion-sick. AK is even more beautiful after dark.

I'm wondering if the evening EMHs will be more crowded when they're cut back to 2 hours in 2013...

We used to do all the PM EMHs but have learned that our favorite is by far MK's. We love being at the MK really late at night, especially an hour before it ends because the park feels like it is only open for us . On occasion, we do do DHS's PM EMH and have decided that Epcot's PM EMH is not really worth it to us. We do avoid all AM EMHs because we are either still trying to get ready for the day or we are eating breakfast somewhere.

I prefer low crowds so I stay away from the emh parks.

I use the strategy of going to a park if it had an EMH the day before. Seems to work for me!

For all the parks except Epcot, I will hit up the AM EMH (there just isn't enough to do in Ep to need that extra hour in the morning) I can accomplish a LOT in that first hour

AK: Upwards for 6 rides of Everest
-Safari once or twice
-Get some nice photopass pics
-Dinosaur if we want to
-Then hit characters for an hour before FOTLK
-Done AK by noon

MK:-All of Fantasyland (including Storybook Circus)
-All of Tomorrowland
-In line for the first characters at 9:00am right as the park opens

If the park ends up getting too busy, I'll park hop somewhere else, but hey, I've done everything I wanted in AK, and half the park in MK. As for PM's I usually don't stick around for them, but after Fantasmic, it's nice to check out the Lights or ToT once more!

We are very much morning people so using am emh makes sense to us. Especially since we like to take a break in the afternoon and go to another park later in the day.
We have hoppers anyway since we like the liberty of changing our minds if one park suddenly gets very busy.

We won't use all of the am-times but we will use them.

I am very much a morning peson, so do try to make the morning EMHs. However, I avoid evening EMHs like the plague. I always have an AP, so once a park starts to get crowded I get the heck out of there.

We have 'tried' them all in our two trips. We really enjoy morning EMH with the kids being younger. We get so much done in that first hour it is crazy! Then when it starts to get crowded (around noon) we leave and go to lunch some where or go back to the resort for some pool time. Then we go back to the park around 4 or 5 and ride what we can.

We did night time EMH at HS it was WAY to busy with the amount of things that were available to do. MK only my teen made it till the end, the younger kids left with dad after the 11pm parade, but we had a great time the last hour or two! I love the little things they do there at night like sidewalk painting. Epcot we usually had everything we wanted to do done by the time EMH came around (but we also spent 3 days here before they happened).
