On our recent trip to Walt Disney World, we had the opportunity to take advantage of Extended Evening Hours (EEH) at both Epcot and Magic Kingdom. This post will take a look how we were able to do that, what we accomplished and whether it's worth the built in cost to use this advantage.
Extended Evening Hours are a relatively new perk offered to guests of deluxe on-site Disney resorts - and ONLY guests of deluxe resorts. This initially created some outrage in the online community, as there were calls of Disney being "elitist" and pricing out the middle class. These claims are not entirely without merit. But Universal offers Express Pass Unlimited (a better service than any FastPass/Genie service Disney has ever offered) with their higher end resorts, and while you can purchase this pass separately, the easiest way to get it is to stay at one of these hotels. EEH is similar for Disney.
