    Coming to Disney to celebrate my 40th birthday the 3rd week of June 2012, adult only trip. What are your suggestion for a trip without the kids. Also, currently have base tickets, what would be the cost to enter MK around 10pm if the park has EMH til 1am.

    Hi Tina!

    I would definitely plan on some Signature Dining experiences.  My favorites for an Adult only trip are the California Grill on top of the Contemporary Resort, Jiko in the Animal Kingdom Lodge, and the Yachtsman Steakhouse in the Yacht Club.  Bistro de Paris in the France pavilion in Epcot is another great location and I think it is especially romantic. 

    You also should consider some backstage tours.  I love the Keys to the Kingdom tour in the Magic Kingdom and the Backstage Magic tour, which is an incredible all day tour take takes you behind the scenes!  Backstage Magic is relatively expensive, but well worth it!  Another option is to do the Wild Africa Trek in Disney's Animal Kingdom.  The Wild Africa Trek will almost certainly have children in your group if you go, but the reason I suggest considering it now is the Wild Africa Trek is relatively expensive; it might be in your budget now and unaffordable on some future family trip.

    With regards to Extra Magic Hours, I'm not sure I understand your question.  If you have base tickets and are staying in a hotel offering Extra Magic Hours then you simply use one of your days on your ticket to enter the park; then you stay for Extra Magic Hours instead of leaving at the regular park closing time.  Guests staying in all Disney owned and operated hotels, the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin, and the Downtown Disney Hilton have access to Extra Magic Hours.  If you have already purchased tickets and just need to add on another day, that can be easily done once you are at Walt Disney World; the exact cost depends on how many days you already have and how many you want to add.  You are limited to a maximum of 10 days though.

    I hope this helps!  Write back with more questions, especially if I didn't answer your question about Extra Magic Hours!  You can send your question directly to me!
