    Can extra magic hours be used on day of check out?

    Hi Tina,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and thank you for your question. Extra Magic Hours are one of my favorite benefits to staying at an onsite hotel, and I especially love the morning ones; the parks feel so peaceful right as they open, and there’s something about the early morning Florida sun that just makes my heart happy.

    I’m so pleased to tell you that the answer to your question is yes! You may use morning or evening Extra Magic Hours on your check-out day, because your onsite hotel amenities last until midnight on that final day. What an “extra magical” way to end your Walt Disney World vacation! On my last trip, I packed up my hotel room, hopped on the monorail to Magic Kingdom Park, and took advantage of Extra Magic Hours before it was time to go. I watched the Let the Magic Begin welcome show in front of the castle, rode a few of my very favorite attractions, and then stopped at the Main Street Bakery for a giant Starbucks iced coffee. Then I hopped on a boat back to my resort, checked out, and hopped on Disney’s Magical Express. I was such a wonderful way to wrap up an unforgettable trip.

    Wishing you an “extra magical” vacation,
