Will there be an event in august (20-25) even though halloween party is that first week in mk? will there be one maybe in dhs? would love to attend one. and if you think they will hopefully when would that be announced? sorry to hop on late and ask this question if it has already been asked.

Quick question about park entry for EMH. We will be there on 6/6/19 and will be walking over from the Contemporary. We have a 7:45 adr at the California Grill and will watch HEA from there. Since the crowds will be emptying out after that, is there a separate entrance in like they usually have for MNSSHP or MVMCP?

I take my daughter to MegaCon every year, and we have AP's, so I usually stay on-site and we hit the parks each afternoon once we leave the convention center. In the past, MegaCon has always been on Memorial Day weekend, and the parks were pretty busy, particularly the closer we got to Monday. This year, they moved it up a week, and it was a big difference. We hit MK on Thursday afternoon (about 3pm), and we had tickets for the DAH event that night. By 7pm, everything started to clear out. Below is a picture of the Space Mountain queue at 8:45pm. They had started using only the FP side. I also included some pictures of various places in the park during DAH. They were all taken around 10:30pm to 11:00pm. Picture quality is iffy as I took them on the move with one hand, so I am surprised they came out as well as they did. This is about as empty as I can remember seeing MK in a long time.

    I’m assuming you mean dah not emh. Those are two different things but hopefully you’re talking about the ticketed event. There is an entrance near the middle that says event entrance on top.

    Looks like that will be our only hope. Maybe they think that with all the guest previews/soft openings that week for SWGE that people won't want to do DAH. Before a rumor gets started, I'm completely kidding and have no knowledge of previews!!!

    I'm usually up for most anything, but that would be rough!! You figure if DHS opens at 6:00 AM and you want to be there by 5 (I'm sure some might go earlier those days), you would have to get up at what, 4:00-ish at the latest? That's assuming you won't have to get lots of kids ready, just yourself, and you won't have a lot of travel time. I didn't look up what time the MK closes to know what time DHS will end, but lets say 12:30. Back to your resort 1-1:30. Even if you can fall asleep immediately you get 3 or so hours of sleep! Maybe if you power through and then go back for a nap fairly early in the day on the 30th, but it seems like a set up for someone possibly crashing completely or if you have kids going a good setup for a meltdown! Not to say I wouldn't try if it was just me, or me and someone like me, but no way could I do that with my kids, and I don't think my DH would be very willing either lol! Update us if you do it!

    So am I correct in saying there’s nowhere that officially lists the event times for these new dates? One could imply 10-1 from the wording on the website, but it’s not entirely clear.
