Disney World Extra Magic Hours

 

Guests staying at Walt Disney World Resort hotels can enjoy more time in the theme parks with the  Extra Magic Hours benefit. Each day, one of the theme parks opens an hour early, or stays open up to two hours extra after regular park hours. This benefit offers guests more time to enjoy shorter lines during these extended theme park hours.  There is no charge for this Disney Resort guest benefit. The following participating resorts qualify for Disney’s Extra Magic Hours:

Walt Disney World-owned resorts    

Walt Disney World Dolphin & Swan Resorts  

Hilton Resort at Downtown Disney   

Shades of Green

Morning Extra Magic Hour occurs one hour prior to regularly scheduled park opening. That means if the park is scheduled to open at 9 a.m. to the general public, the Extra Magic Hour begins at 8 a.m for resort guests. Transportation for the park offering Morning Extra Magic Hour will begin 30 minutes earlier than the opening time.

NOTE: You MUST present a valid Key to the World Card (Resort ID) along with your ticket at the park’s turnstiles.

Evening Extra Magic Hours typically extend two hours beyond a park’s scheduled closing time. You’ll need to  present a valid Resort ID at each attraction during the Extra Magic Hours period. (NOTE: Wristbands are no longer used.)

As of July 11, 2011, the Epcot Monorail now operates only up to one hour after regular park closing time. The Magic Kingdom Monorail system will also only operate up to one hour after regular park closing beginning August 1, 2011. This change of service is being made to allow for maintenance on the Monorail system. This means that there will be NO Monorail service during Evening Extra Magic Hours later than one hour after regular park closing times. These changes will not affect morning operating hours for the Monorail. The Magic Kingdom Resort Monorail service starts at 7 a.m., while the Magic Kingdom Express Monorail service starts 30 minutes prior to Magic Kingdom opening time. The Epcot Monorail service begins one hour before Epcot opening time. While this change in Monorail service is in effect, watercraft (where applicable) and additional buses will be available to transport guests.
