    Hi. We have booked 5 days from August 17th and we will be staying at Hilton Buena Vista Palace Orlando. Do we have access to the Magic Extra Hours? Is it everyday or just occasionally (eg. Magic Kingdom on August 21st 21:00 to 23:00). Thanks

    Hello Rafael, 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for asking us a question! You must be so excited to see that your visit to Walt Disney World Resort is coming up in a few short weeks!

    From what I understand, the Hilton Orlando Buena Vista Palace is included among the Disney Springs Resort Area Hotels that does participate in Extra Magic Hours. This means that, on most days, one or more Theme Parks is designated as having Extra Magic Hours when it opens early or stays open up to 2 hours later for Guests staying in a Disney Resort Hotel and other select hotels. 

    The Theme Park that will be open earlier or later changes every day (so they don’t take place every day), and some days may not have any Extra Magic Hours available at all, so please check the Park Hours schedule when you’re making your plans. And don't forget to enter your hotel confirmation number into your My Disney Experience account in order to start making your FastPass+ selections up to 60 days in advance - another great perk associated with your hotel stay. 

    I hope my answer helps you plan a wonderful vacation this August. Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions!

    Have a Magical Day,
