    I am confused with early morning magic hours and arrival time... if magic kingdom has magic hours 7-8am, does it mean you can enter at 6 am? If the park opens normally at 8 am, you can get in at 7am?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Christina!

    Guests staying at a Disney Resort hotel get to enjoy amazing benefits including Extra Magic Hours! I personally love it when they are offered in the morning, because this means I can enjoy some of my favorite attractions practically without having to wait in line.

    When Extra Magic Hours are offered in the morning, Disney Resort hotel Guests are allowed to enter the theme park offering them at the time they are scheduled to start. If Magic Kingdom is offering Extra Magic Hours from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m., this means you will be allowed to enter and enjoy participating attractions starting at 7:00 a.m. On a morning Magic Kingdom Park opens at 8:00 a.m. for all Guests, you are allowed to enter one hour before, but you will only have access to Main Street U.S.A. up to Cinderella Castle. All lands will be closed until official park opening time.

    I hope this helps you while planning, Christina! Come back to visit us soon if you have additional questions, we are delighted to help!

    Best magical wishes,
