    We are coming in April, I am trying to figure out if we can book Fast Pass+ times during Extra Magic Hours? We are looking at trying EMH to get into Pandora with a lesser wait, but I wasn't sure if we can do FP+ as well during EMH? Thanks!

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Leigh-Anne! You sound like you're planning a pretty special trip to Walt Disney World Resort, and you're on the right track because my number one tip for anyone who wants to have a the most magical vacation possible is to do a little bit of planning.

    Let's talk about Extra Magic Hours. Each day, a different theme park opens one hour early or stays open up to two hours later than the posted operating hours exclusively for the enjoyment of guests who are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel. While there is no FastPass+ available during these times, the great news is that you definitely don't need any. Since this experience is only available to guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, there are much fewer people in the parks than there are during the day, and that combined with there being no FastPass+ queue makes the lines move much more quickly.

    Pandora - The World of Avatar at Disney's Animal Kingdom is a very popular destination for guests, even during Extra Magic Hours, so make sure to arrive early and be ready to head straight there. Go right to Avatar Flight of Passage so you can experience it while there are fewer people there, and then plan the rest of your FastPass+ for a time later in the day after more guests have arrived. 

    See ya real soon, Leigh-Anne!
