What are Extra Magic Hours?

Extra Magic Hours are a special perk for guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel. Exclusive time in the park before or after they open to the public. They give hotel guests either one hour in the morning or two hours at night to enjoy the magic with smaller crowds and lower wait times. Extra Magic Hours are available at all four Walt Disney World theme parks as well as both water parks but availability may vary on the day of the week and time of year.
