    Can we take advantage of AM EMH on the day we check in? We are planning on going to Animal Kingdom at 8:00 on our first day but wont be checking into our hotel until that evening. Thanks

    Hi Amy,

    Disney's Animal Kingdom is wonderful first thing in the morning as the animals tend to be more active in the morning. This is a great park to start your vacation at as there is a nice combination of shows and attractions.

    As long as your park tickets are linked to your resort reservation in My Disney Experience, you should have no issue entering the park for Extra Magic Hours. However, if you are on the Disney Dining Plan, you will need to head to your resort first to activate your dining.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
