Default EMH Changes at HS

While I havenít checked them all, our EMH changed from 7-8am on January 5th at HS to 9p-11p on the 5th. Itís not like people planned FPís and dining reservations or anything based on getting there early that morning. This is less than a month away. Sorry for the rant, but itís very frustrating that they require all this planning and then just change things at their whim too close to make changes to any plans.

I just emailed them. I'll let ya'll know what, if anything, they say.

I mean we have our 3 FP's and a lunch dining reservation at HS based on these morning EMH. Had I known the EMH were going to be at night, I would have planned very differently for this day. My daughter also has a BBB reservation that evening in MK! UGH! Come on Disney!

I am tired also of the hours not being as they say. Busses are nit getting to the resort early enough as HS is stated to open at 8. But it is actually opening at 6:30. The boarding passes are almost gone by the time the resort guest can get there .

This has been one of my frustrations that I have complained out before on MO and to Disney, not that I expect it to change.

Ignoring rooms at 7 or 11 months, Disney wants us to have ADRs at 6 months, FP+ at 60 days but they can't get their schedules figured out or let folks know about events, extra magic hours, etc. then.

And yes, I know we do not need to make ADRs and FP+ but DW and I are both planners (and to be honest, DW gets stuck with most of the planning), but we are going over Christmas and expect it to be crazy.

I was able to change this weekends FP to an early SD because of this.

Maybe they count on people not remembering what the EMH dates/times were when they planned 60 days out. I know I don't. Then when I get there and things seem off, I sit there and think I'm crazy for why I planned a certain park/activity for a certain day. Sorry they changed it on you. Curious if you will hear back from them. I was thinking HS had early EMH now pretty much permanently (at least while ROTR is still new)...I know the gates have been opening at 6:30 am.

I wonder if they will continue to have an "unofficial" opening at 7:00 or 7:30 for guests that arrive early while moving the official EMH to the evening. As mentioned above they are already doing this now. I know it is maddening. We are planners too. If you don't mind, update this thread to let us know what actually happens when you are there.

Even though gates are opening early there is no EMH. I think for 8am official open and 6:30 gates open...then you just stand there or leave to come back because no rides open until 8am. Right? They did the 6am EMH with the other ride but stopped that before ROTR opened. Or am I wrong?
