    Coming to WDW in June. Have ADR at each Park for 5 nights circa 7:30pm. AK's closing hr is 7p on 6/21 but with EMH it closes at 10p. How does this work & do we have to hang around AK to ensure we are there or can you be admitted after closing during EM

    Hi Christina,

    You must be getting so excited for your upcoming vacation!

    As long as you are a resort guest, you can be admitted to Animal Kingdom any time during Extra Magic Hours.  You won't have arrive at the park before closing.  However, you'll want to arrive to your reservation 20 minutes early, and Animal Kingdom is quite spread out.  I'm thinking it would be a good idea to plan on arriving at the park around 6:00 anyway.  This will give you a buffer in case the buses aren't moving as quickly as you planned.  You won't be rushed getting to the restaurant, and you may even be able to take in an attraction before dinner.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!

After spending 25 years in RI, my husband and I relocated to GA with our youngest, who is now in high school. I took my first trip to Walt Disney World when I was 11 and I have traveled many times since then with all different party sizes. From creating our first itinerary as a honeymooner to later creating magical experiences for our multigenerational family gatherings, every aspect of planning a vacation has been pure joy to me.  Learn More About Diane
