    Hello, Are the Extra Magic Hours the same schedule, by this I mean does each of the parks have there day of the week in which they have extra magic hours. Also are the buses open earlier to accommodate for the earlier time that the park opens. Thank You.

    Hi Pablo,

    My family loves taking advantage of Extra Magic Hours! Some magical theme park time with smaller crowds and shorter wait times? Yes, please!

    Extra Magic Hours do vary from week to week, so I wouldn't base the schedule for your upcoming vacation on what you see available now. That could definitely change. You'll find park hours, Extra Magic Hours, and parade and nighttime show times released approximately six months in advance so that you'll have time to put together the perfect itinerary for your vacation. Do know, though, that it is quite possible that theme park hours could change the closer you get to your trip. While the days that Extra Magic Hours are offered aren't as likely to change, that is possible as well.

    And yes, I'm happy to let you know that the buses will begin running earlier if there are morning Extra Magic Hours at one of the theme parks. They'll begin running at least 45 minutes before the theme park opens for the day, so you should have no trouble getting there on time, and you can just sit back, relax, and let Disney do the driving.

    Thanks so much for bringing another question to us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Pablo, and please feel free to come back again if there's something else you need help with as you're planning your trip! I hope that you have a truly magical vacation!
