    Doug, I have looked at this web site several times. We are going Sept.27- Oct 2 for the 5 nights 6 days dining plan thing. Is there something about longer hours and places to eat? Never been before. Would like to eat with boy cast. I have 2 sons.


    Some quick answers to your questions. 

    Extra Magic Hours (EMH) are a perk provided to guests staying at Disney resorts. Those guests can enter select parks an hour early in the morning, or stay several hours after normal closing time at night, enjoying more time and with traditionally smaller crowds. The parks with Extra Magic Hours during your stay are;

    • September 27 - Magic Kingdom, evening EMH
    • September 28 - Animal Kingdom, morning EMH
      • Also Epcot for evening EMH
    • September 29 - Hollywood Studios, morning EMH
    • September 30 - Hollywood Studios, evening EMH

    Park schedules for October (including the Extra Magic Hours information) have not been released, but should be in early July. If I were to guess, I expect Magic Kingdom morning EMH on the 1st, and Epcot evening EMH on the 2nd.

    For dining, I am glad to make suggestions, but need to know more. Tell me what kind of cuisine, experiences, etc. that you enjoy. Tell me if the boys have any special characters they would like to meet, and what parks you plan on visiting. I am glad to make suggestions from there (that is the MOST fun part of my job!).

    Have a magical vacation!
