    It would seem that for some reason only known to the powers at be at Walt Disney World, Extra Magic evening hours at the Magic Kingdom are being cancelled from the 31st May 2013 through to the end of August 2013.

    The Magic Kingdom will instead be open from 9am to 11pm on Fridays. I will update the calendars for the Parks and post a link when this is done.

    I can see this will be a disappointment for some people who have made plans around the Extra Magic Hours.

    I wonder what that is all about? Most odd.

    I'm in the middle of updating the calendars and it seems to be every Friday for some reason :unsure:

    It does seem strange, first they cut EMH in the evening from 3 hours to 2 hours and now in the Magic Kingdom they are cutting them all together in some June, July and August. Makes me wonder if they will update September as well at some point.

    Maybe they have worked out that having the Magic Kingdom open an hour longer for all guests is more cost effective than having the Magic Kingdom open for 2 hours with onsite guests :shrug:

    Rumor is that RFID will eliminate all EMH

    Morning EMH too? wow!!

    We rarely use them, but IT IS one of the most advertised perks of staying onsite!

    They do some really strange counter intuitive things don't they? :shrug1:

    I know not everyone is a fan of EMH but I've had some great times with evening EMH, 3am boat back to the wilderness lodge happy as a happy thing could be. Ironically I'm not THAT much of a park person, I tend to go there, do the things I like and leave but the EMH evenings saw me at the park from early evening through to the early hours during which time I was buying stuff, having dinner and generally spending money.

    We planned a New Years trip years ago based solely on EMH. We slept during the day and were in the parks till 3-4 am. That's the only way that trip would have worked
