I imagine the parks won't be as crowded earlier and later, either.
New strategy (for anyone who reads this) -Go from 4:30 pm on. That's when everyone's tiring out and going back for naps and dinner. And if you're in the Magic Kingdom, even better, because once the parades and fireworks start, everyone is watching those, and you can just walk right onto almost any ride with no wait! (Did I do this? No. I was far too impatient! Lol! But from 4:30 on it was much easier. Rain helped lines thin out too!)
