    how early do you get into the parks if you stay at the resort onsite? and do you get to stay later?

    Hi Tim!

    Thanks for sending your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Extra Magic Hours are probably my favorite benefit of staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel. The exact amount of hours offered in the Extra Magic Hours is typically one extra hour in the morning and two hours in the evening, but rarely on the same day or park. If you have already selected your travel dates, you can check to see the Extra Magic Hours offered by visiting this page: Park Hours.

    Did you know?: Pandora - The World of Avatar recently opened at Disney's Animal Kingdom! This new land is breathtaking and features the most amazing attraction called Avatar Flight of Passage! Be sure to check it out during the Extra Magic Hours as the wait times may be less!

    It has been a pleasure assisting you! Please feel free to send any additional questions you may have!

    Happy Planning,
