Default EMH axed - new “early entry”

EMH is ending for good.

Instead onsite guests will be able to enter ANY park 30 minutes early every day.

Now of course everyone is used to parks opening early and holding guests inside the parks. Now they’ll have to have separate lines for onsite and offsite guests.
Plus more time for up-charge events in the evenings.

And the parade of hits keeps giving...

This will benefit us to a degree as we only ever did morning EMH, and this is effectively a shorter version of that without having to pick a specific park. But this is an overall negative for others, and even for us we get 30 minutes instead of an hour.

Cheers.

Looks like the evening hours are gone.

This is closer to what it used to be. Much preferable but tbh wish it were the hour we used to have when they did have this back I think in the 90s. We kinda always avoided EMH after a few times.

Yup. Doesn't impact us as we don't use them, but still a big devaluation for many.

Cheers.

Like others, EMH became really nothing for us in the evenings. Crowds were worse at evening EMH than just about any other time. Early EMH was the only thing we did, and spreading the morning EMH crowd around to 4 parks is likely to make it that much more beneficial.

That said, the argument to justify the cost of onsite accommodations is taking some major hits right now!

Sad for us...we only ever used the evening hours. During our last big family trip, January 2019, the evening EMH worked really well for us. We had no waits at all.

Boo! I wish it was every park for 60 minutes like everyone else has said. I think doing it for every park is good, but give us 60 minutes, not 30. :/

30 minutes is a joke and useless.
