    With the extra magic hours is there something I need to do to sign up? Or just show up early? Can you use fast passes during that time?

    Hey, Maggie and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I am so excited for your August trip to the place "where dreams come true" and I want to help you plan the most magical Disney vacation.

    Extra Magic Hours are a special benefit for Guests of Walt Disney World Resort hotels and select partner hotels where you can enjoy extra time in the four theme parks. There is nothing "extra" to purchase and no need to sign up which is why these hours are so magical. I checked to see if the Park Hours are posted for your trip and they are not available yet. Check back weekly to see if the Extras Magic Hours are for each theme park are posted.

    To take advantage of Morning Extra Magic Hours just show up to the theme park before or during the designated time. Your MagicBand or Admission Card will allow you to enter. Only allowed Guests will be allowed to ride attractions during Evening Extra Magic Hours. All other Guests will kindly be asked to make their way to the exit. You will not need to make FastPass+ selections during Extra Magic Hours because the lines are shorter and the FastPass+ entrances are closed so save them for regular theme park hours.

    Disney Dad Tip: For more magic check out Disney Early Morning Magic - Fantasyland and Toy Story Land and Disney After Hours. These paid events have low crowd levels to maximize fun. I was able to ride both Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and Peter Pan's Flight three times in a row.

    Maggie, enjoy making many Magical Memories.
