I understand that if you can get magic hours you should plan on going to that park that day.

Out of curiosity is there better magic hours for certain parks in the evening or morning?
You should have no problem with knowing park hours by your 180 mark.

We never schedule a meal during morning EMH. Those are days we do a quick snack en route to the bus. We may schedule a dinner at the end of park hours leading into EMH. Then we stay for a little bit of evening EMH.

EMH - we love mornings and maximize morning EMH. But, we are all early risers normally. We grab a snack and get to the rope drop, blast through the 'big' rides. Then we do a few other rides. After that - it depends on our mood.
We don't tend to do a lot of evening EMH. DD 11, is NOT a night owl. Generally by 9:30, she's done. If she has some energy on evening EMH days, we will do it for a bit but that's generally HS or Epcot, both of which close 'early' to begin with.

We Always have Hoppers which affords us the flexibility.
Good luck and have fun.

My reservations/plans for that morning may have just been ruined!!!
The CM must have looked at March 30 rather than April 30 because on March 30 MK does open at 8am with EMH at 7am, but on April 30 MK opens at 9am with no EMH. It doesn't make sense for MK to open at 8am when it's not a peak crowd time (and late April is definitely not peak crowds), and it definitely wouldn't have a 7am EMH when it's not a peak crowd time. You better check your ADR to make sure it's for April 30 and not March 30.

I do know that the weekend of April 27-29 will be busy. That is the weekend of Cheerleading Worlds. We were there two weeks ago for All Star Cheer Nationals and they did change park hours at the last minute because of crowds. That being said, I wouldn't count on the hours changing.

We were at rope drop. toured fast and furious until lunch time (about 12:30) then left and went swimming, took a nap and came back to the park about 5:30
we were able to hang until about 1am when the GD got really tired

I would also highly recommend checking out easywdw.com for which park to visit each day.
