    As Disney hotel guests, we have always been able enjoy evening extra hours for free. Are they now charging??

    Hi Maria!

    I'm excited to see that you are planning your return trip to Walt Disney World Resort! One of the benefits of staying at the Disney Resort hotels is Extra Magic Hours. These are times when the theme parks are open exclusively for Guests staying at one of the Disney Resort hotels or other select hotels. So don't worry, access to morning and evening Extra Magic Hours is still an included benefit that you will be able to enjoy with your hotel reservation without additional cost!

    The theme parks do offer some special events that require an additional ticket that allows theme park access during the early morning or late evening. Disney After Hours, Early Morning Magic - Fantasyland, Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party are all specially ticketed events where Guests can enjoy the theme parks with limited numbers of other Guests. Plus, these events include magical extras for Guests to enjoy during the event. While these events do require a special ticket for admission, they occur on different days and times than Extra Magic Hours, so you will still be able to enjoy morning and evening Extra Magic Hours without any additional cost as a Disney Resort hotel Guest!

    Maria, the Disney Imagineers have been busy bringing new things to the theme parks, Disney Resort hotels and Disney Springs for Guests to enjoy, so be sure to follow the Disney Parks Blog as you continue planning your trip to get the latest announcements about the magic you will be able to experience during your visit. Feel free to come back to see us if you have additional questions as you continue planning! T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
