    With the 7:00 am Extra Magic Hours at Animal Kingdom this summer, what attractions are included and is it for all resort guests?

    Hello Amy!  Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    This summer is gearing up to be 1 of Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park's most exciting!  With the opening of Pandora - The World of Avatar and all of the new night time experiences like Rivers of Light, I can't wait for my family's visit to the "Wild Side" of the Walt Disney World Resort this August.

    As a benefit to staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, all Resort Guests can take part in Extra Magic Hours on select days.  For Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, the following attractions are scheduled to take part in Extra Magic Hours:
    • Dinosaur;
    • Kiliimanjaro Safaris (my pick for non-Pandora attractions during Extra Magic Hours);
    • Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain;
    • Primeval Whirl
    • Triceratop Spin
    • It's Tough to Be a Bug!; and,
    • The Gorilla Falls Expeditiion and Discovery Island Trails.
    In addition, Pandora - The Land of Avatar will be open during Extra Magic Hours.  This will include the Avatar Flight of Passage and Na'vi River Journey attractions.  To ensure that you get to experience what is sure to be 2 extremely popular attractions, you may want to consider booking FastPass+ selections for Avatar Flight of Passage or Na'vi River Journey.  I know I will be!

    Have a Wild Time!
