Tails with Belle is almost just a meet and greet. Shows are not normally with extra magic hours. Just click bate.

Yea, but there’s nothing more ridiculous than how much they’re cutting and forcing more and more crowds. Our kids LOVE the meet and greets. There’s not enough rides to sustain the crowds.

I’m okay with this one. Saves a tiny bit of money perhaps, and at least the attraction is available the rest of the time.

Paying the same for less. That’s what we call a sucker out here. But, to each their own… My kids would be disappointed. The money Disney saves, the lose in their image of being so disgustingly cheap.

Not a sucker. There’s plenty they do I’m not happy about, but this seems okay – I don’t normally go to EMH anyway since those are the days those parks are most crowded.

As much as everyone loves to criticize Disney for cost cutting, this isn’t the case here.

They need a minimum number of guests to run the show and they weren’t getting the numbers needed that early in the morning. People were waiting for more guests to arrive, basically wasting the EMH.

Yea, I’d believe that if we weren’t here now. I totally disagree with you Ryan. They closed 1/2 of the parking entrances, and there’s so many attractions that you can tell they’re not running to full capacity. Restaurants we wait 50 minutes to sit at (with advanced dining reservation) are half staffed. I don’t think it’s people ‘love to criticize Disney”, it’s I think they’ve totally lost touch that their goal is to create a good experience. THey’re failing miserably at that, and it shows in their stocks, profits, and the faces of the cast members and most guests alike.… Read more »

Is Adventureland always closed for morning Extra Magic Hours? Kind of surprised that it was closed when we went last week.

I just checked my current complete list of what’s OPEN during EMH (morning) at Magic Kingdom (I’m heading there in a week so I’ve been updating my planning notes) and it does not include anything in Adventureland (just Tomorrowland, Storybook Circus & Fantasyland stuff, plus the Town Square Theatre meet’n’greet). The evening EMH, however, has the Magic Carpets, Pirates, and Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse open (along with some other non-Adventureland attractions). I got the list from either this site or another I shouldn’t name….do a search online.

Just editing to add….Tiki Room also open for EMH evenings (but not mornings).
