If you love visiting the Disney Parks during Extra Magic hours, you’re in luck. Walt Disney World is rewarding early birds this fall with new Extra, Extra Magic Hours that will give you early access to the theme parks as early as 6 a.m. Here are all the details.

Disney announced last month that guests visiting Walt Disney World Resort can access Extra, Extra Magic Hours this fall just in time for the upcoming grand opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. But if you’ve never made the trip to Walt Disney World or stayed at an official Disney hotel, you may be wondering, what are Extra Magic Hours and how can you utilize them?

In a nutshell, Extra Magic Hours are exclusive times when the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks are open only to guests staying at official Walt Disney World hotels. These hotels include those owned and operated by Disney as well as hotels that Disney has partnerships with. So even though there are plenty of benefits to staying on Disney property, there are also a variety of other hotels in the Walt Disney World area that offer a lot of the same perks…including the benefit of these all-new Extra, Extra Magic Hours.
