Disney Extra Magic Hours

Disney’s Extra Magic Hours program allows guests of selected Walt Disney World Resort hotels gain early entry to the parks before they open, and remain in the parks after they close.

Extra Magic Hours is only available on selected dates and are available to guests of Walt Disney World Resort hotels, the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotels, and the Shades of Green Resort.

Extra Magic Hours are available in the mornings and the evenings – Disney publicise in advance the dates on which Extra Magic Hours are available. A selection of attractions and dining options are available in each case.

Morning Extra Magic Hours

Morning Extra Magic Hours begin one hour before the scheduled park opening time. For example if the park is due to open at 9am, the Extra Magic Hours will begin at 8am.

On Morning Extra Magic Hours days, Disney Transportation to the park begins 30 minutes prior to the Extra Magic Hours start time.

Evening Extra Magic Hours

Evening Extra Magic Hours normally operate for up to two hours beyond the park’s scheduled closing time, but Disney will confirm the details in advance.

Note – Non Disney resort guests are allowed to remain in the park during Evening Extra Magic Hours but are not permitted to access the attractions. You will therefore need to confirm your resort information at each attraction – for most people this would be done using their MagicBand.
