I’d like to see them start staggering the other parks a bit. DHS and AK could use it…

Slight change in the Extended Evening Hours schedule at the end of March. Extended Evening hours in Magic Kingdom is currently listed for Tuesday, March 29th instead of Wednesday, March 30th.

Remy's Ratatouille has been officially added to the list of attractions open during Early Entry -

Despite unscrupulous claims to the contrary, it appears that Epcot/MK flip of extended evening hours for Presidents Week was one-time only. Back to Epcot the following Monday.

I would love that! We're finally going back to WDW after about a 5 year absence, nearly two years of which was due to covid lockdowns cancelling our previously booked trip. Staying at the Swan, and a early hour in (especially to GE) would be awaesome!

Considering that the 2 hours one night per week in one park is one of the rare benefits currently offered, I'm not going to overthink the intent of why it is. There were less people there than DVC MM nights or the Passholder AH offerings from a few years ago. Aside from the brief time after reopening it's been a long time since I felt we had the "run of the park"

I know someone who is going in a couple of months -- they were originally going to go for 6 or 7 days and stay at a moderate, but instead changed their trip to 4 days staying at a deluxe to take advantage of the EEH. They decided they could probably do everything they really want to do that way while spending roughly the same amount of money. I'm not sure if that's good or bad for Disney. Of course they want people staying in the deluxes, but I don't know if they want people shortening their trips.

This past Wednesday we did 12 rides between 8 and midnight, and likely could have done 15 if we could walk faster. I hope it sticks around for a while or at least add another park in for rotation, like the studios.

I don't think the Early Entry times will be permanent, but I do wonder if they will reconsider Genie+ and keep those ride changes. While they'd make less money from ILL, it would significantly improve the value and ability to use Genie+. And DLR only has 1 ILL at DL so it's not like it's unprecedented to have only one in each park.

Me too, 1 hour means SDMT, Space, Pan @MK, Rise, MF, TSMM, and in line for Slinky @DHS, and FoPx2, NRJ @AK.

It would be nice if they extend that indefinitely beyond January 3. I won't hold my breath, though.
