    Are the early / late magic hours for Disney hotel residents the same every week or do they change all the time?

    Hello there, Mathew! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thanks for stopping by and asking your Walt Disney World Resort question! 

    Guests staying at a Disney Resort hotel actually receive quite a few perks! This includes reserving FastPass+ selections up to 60 days prior to your arrival date, receiving complimentary MagicBands, complimentary transportation, complimentary parking when visiting the theme parks, and Extra Magic Hours! 

    Extra Magic Hours are a great way to squeeze a bit more time in the parks into your Walt Disney World Resort vacation! Guests staying at Disney Resort hotels are invited to enjoy select attractions either before or after normal operating hours in at least one of the four theme parks daily. Guests will need to present valid park admission as well as their MagicBand or Resort ID prior to entering the parks during Extra Magic Hours. 

    The availability and location of Extra Magic Hours do change based on the day and week in which you are visiting. I would recommend either picking up a Time Guide whenever you enter the parks or checking out the Park Hours webpage. Both of these resources will tell you when and where Extra Magic Hours will be taking place on any given day. 

    Have fun continuing to plan for your summer trip to Walt Disney World Resort! Please let us know if we can answer any other questions for you!
