Still waiting to see if June will have more hours added gah
I could be wrong, but it feels a little early still? In my head, if they're going to add more EMH, it will be about 2 weeks out. (At least that's what my memory says happens every time we have a trip in the works.)

Oof 6 am openings at DHS, 7 am openings at MK and AK. I much prefer more evening hours but it beats having a required reservation. Still waiting on DL to announce what they are doing post June 23 for onsite guests.

I’ll say it. I wish it was PM EMH at DHS instead of AM. But I’m glad it’s 3 hours early. Hopefully that discourages some from attempting. And that’s a BIG jump on heat (we’ll be there opening weekend).

For the person waiting for the June hours update, if history is an indication, that should happen this Friday (5/10).

I’m hoping it’s not crazy at 6 am
From my perspective ( on a daily basis) there are a number of guest that respond to EMH in the mornings. But on average the que lines for busses don't start getting busy till 9 ish. Of course there are exceptions, I'm saying on average. I can't tell you how many times we drive around with an empty bus then all of a sudden slam , here they come!!!! I often have opportunities to be in the park early ( before guest) it's a unique experience! It is not a barren place as some may think. Depending on the time it can be quite busy, sometimes with normal opening preparations or something special that has to be done without out guests.

This is amazing!!! I am not a Star Wars fan at all but I’d love to be there this fall for these extra magic hours!! We are planning for January 2020 so hopefully crowds have settled a bit by then.
We were thinking of trying to sneak in a trip before Galaxy's Edge opens, but the grounding of the 737 Max jets and subsequent ridiculous flight prices put the kibosh on that. I'm going to be watching crowd levels like a hawk for a while.
