Should I do HS and/or MK DAH?

I'm planning on going to WDW in 17 days from April 29 - May 5. There are three DAH events during my trip. HS has DAH on Wed. May 1 and Sat. May 4. MK DAH is Thursday, May 2. My plans are to be in HS one day and in MK on multiple days so not sure if I should do any or none of these.

Here's my schedule:
  • Mon 4/29: Epcot
  • Tue 4/30: Epcot
  • Wed 5/1: HS (HS DAH, themed on 30th anniversary is tonight)
  • Thu 5/2: AK (MK DAH is tonight)
  • Fri 5/3: Free, although I scheduled FPs for MK late in the afternoon. Don't have to use them.
  • Sat 5/4: MK (HS DAH, themed on SW is tonight)
  • Sun 5/5: Check out. I plan on hopping into MK before I drive home but could hop into any park.

We're both going to be in Epcot on Tuesday. As you saw from the other's post, I'm at the DAH at HS on 5/1. If you've got the money and time to do both, go for it. I learned from a previous trip, when we spent the day in AK and then that night at MNSSHP, that my husband and I are not able to spend the day in one park and then stay out later for a special event LOL. Especially in the heat and humidity :) I thought about doing the MK after hours but decided that I would rather experience the daytime entertainment. In all of our trips, we've never seen the Dapper Days, Trolley Show, or any of the other street entertainment. Shocking, right?! So this trip, instead of focusing on all of the rides, I want to focus on the experience. And maybe next trip do the after hours. If I liked Star Wars, I would probably have chosen to the the HS 5/4 event instead because of the cosplay element. I like the Halloween party because we can go in costume and that's not something you can do every day in the parks.

Yeah, I've already done the HS DAH once. I would really do the AK DAH if it were held the week I'm there. Unfortunately, it's not. I may already end up in MK on three separate days while not three full days, so not sure about doing MK DAH either. I think my attitude is wait and see. If sold out, I'm not meant to do it. If not, I'll have the option during my trip.

I am in the same predicament as well! We are signed up for MK DAH on the 2nd. Keep going back and forth on May 4th. If you want to buy our DAH as well we would be happy to tag along ;). I keep hearing good things about DAH so I feel like our money is well spent.
