Walt Disney World Resort offers extra park hours, also known as “Extra Magic Hours,” on certain days throughout the week to guests staying at select on-site Disney hotels, including all DVC guests. During Extra Magic Hours, guests can enjoy additional time in the theme parks either before they open to the public or after they close. This provides on-site guests with exclusive access to popular attractions, entertainment, and character meet-and-greets with shorter lines. The Extra Magic Hours schedule varies by park and is subject to change, so it’s recommended to check the official Walt Disney World website or with a Disney Cast Member for the most up-to-date information.
During the slower months such as February, Extra Magic Hours can be the most magical time at Disney.
