    Are there ever evening extra magic hours at Animal Kingdom?

    Hey, Jennifer and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Sometimes regular theme park hours are not just enough to enjoy all the pixie dust and you need some additional time for the thrills, food, and fun. That is why Mickey added complimentary Extra Magic Hours for Guests staying at Disney Parks Resort hotels and other select hotel properties.

    Extra Magic Hours are when the theme parks are open an hour extra in the morning or a few hours extra in the evening to select Guests. Guests attending Morning Extra Magic Hours will be checked at the main entrance to each theme park by scanning a MagicBand or Admission Card while Evening Extra Magic Hours also scan but do it at the attraction FastPass+ entrance. Those who are not staying at a select hotel will not be granted access to the attractions. Disney Animal Kingdom Theme Park hours show many Morning Extra Magic Hours and no dates with Evening Extra Magic Hours of now. Instead, they have added dates for Disney After Hours at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. These dates are subject to change and evening Extra Magic Hours may be added in the future so please check the park hours.

    Disney Dad Tip: If you do not get a FastPass+ selection for a top attraction, show up 45 minutes early to the theme parks. When the theme park opens head directly to that attraction. You may also get in line when the theme park officially closes. Any Guest in line for an attraction when the theme park officially closes will be allowed to enjoy the attraction.

    Jennifer, enjoy making many Magical Memories.
