Extra Magic Hour

It's Back!

Guests that are staying at a Disney owned and operated resort are given privilege to enter the theme parks a bit early on a rotating weekly schedule.  To take advantage of this, simply use Disney transportation to get to the park earlier than the posted opening time.  Also, I would suggest that you confirm the below schedule at the front desk when you check-in to your resort , just to be on the safe side.

The schedule is as follows:

  • Sunday  Magic Kingdom

  • Monday  Animal Kingdom

  • Tuesday  Disney-MGM Studios

  • Wednesday  Epcot

  • Thursday  Magic Kingdom

  • Friday  Animal Kingdom

  • Saturday  Disney-MGM Studios

MousePlanet reader Steve sent me this information on Extra Magic Hour:

"Imagine an extra hour in a Walt Disney World Theme park to hit some rides and meet some characters. The Extra Magic Hour benefit is a very special time-and an exclusive benefit just for guests of select Walt Disney World Resort hotels. Please check the schedule on the reverse side, so you'll know which theme park is having the Extra Magic Hour benefit each day. Valid theme park ticket and resort I.D. required."
