Morning EMH

It's been a couple of years since we've been and my memory isn't what it use to be. I'm thinking that we usually get to the bus stop at 7:00am for a 8:00am emh. I'm thinking this will work. What do you think? We've gone many times but I always have trouble remember what time to be at the bus stop.

We usually plan on being at the bus stop an hour before park open or EMH start time as a general rule.

If the parks are forecast to be particularly crowded for an event or because of the time of year we might bump it back a little bit earlier.


Enjoy your trip!

For us it depends on where we are staying and which park we are going to.

At the YC, the bus to MK took over an hour. Between the wait for the bus, the resort stops and then the bus ride....it was about an hour and 15min.

From AKL to MK, there was no resort bus stops prior (Jambo House), the bus ride only took 25min. So an hour prior to EMH was plenty of time.

I would factor in your resort and park location and the bus route and adjust your time accordingly.

Being at the bus stop 60 minutes before park opening should be fine for a morning EMH, especially if its during a slower period. I think Disney recommends 60-90 minutes before your own target arrival time. I think transportation for resorts start at 6:30am.
Even during the busiest times, that morning EMH is probably the best time to get the big headliners done. Have a great trip!
