They're advertising it to guests as of today. Can we stop "waiting for the roll out", now?

To be fair, I don't see how EMH after the parks have closed effects day to day operations and subsequent guest experiences. I also realize that many families with small children are not going to utilize the after hour EMH benefit for obvious reasons.

<<Okay, sure. But it's also INCREDIBLY easy to plan your visits to certain parks around EMH days. You don't have to go to EPCOT when there's morning EMH.>>

Yes it is, and obviously that is something diligent family planners prepare for prior to any WDW trip. Still, WDW gets their complement of WDW park first timers who are not familiar with the Fast Pass system. And there is a WDW park phenomena that parks with EMH are often the most crowded the day of the week the EMH are offered in those parks.

Finally, the luxury of entering a specific WDW park early for EMH every Tuesday is little comfort for the vast majority of guests who will only be on vacation at WDW for a week or less. I fully understand why guests get irate when rides and attractions are temporarily closed for a day or more. I myself have departed from a weeks long vacation at WDW having missed many rides ( like Splash Mountain ) thinking..... well there is always next year.

I don't follow Ops decision-making on EMH but I thought that there was at least one EMH per day - and often both a morning and evening - is that not the case any more?

"Technically NGE hasn't been formally announced. We were told earlier this week that the initial launch might not be until March now - and Q3 is a possibility too. It isn't quite there."

This is exactly the impression that I've had all along. Thanks for clarifying.

There is one per day. Very rarely is there a morning and an evening at different parks on the same day. And it's usually an Animal Kingdom morning paired with a different park's EMH.

How are we classifying formally announced?

I'd consider this article where both Tom Staggs and Bruce Vaughn talk about it as "formally announcing it"

Not to mention the same stuff being posted on the Disney Parks Blog.

The point remains that EMH is not a level playing field. Participants in the program have an advantage over those who don't. Perhaps we'll see a more dramatic impact because of MyMagic+, but you were contending that the playing field is level now and it isn't because of EMH and other programs that give preference to certain customers.

It's a level playing field. Everyone gets the same normal operating hours.

Typically there's a press release outlining all of the details followed by TV spots and published advertisements. At least that's what I'm looking for, not a small segment of a larger presentation from the CEO to a group of stock holders.

But not the same access.
