    Our family is traveling to Disney and will be staying at a Disney resort. We have family that will be meeting up with us. Are we all about to utilize magic hours?

    Hey, hey, Allison and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Wahoo!, it sounds like you are going to have an exciting family Walt Disney World Resort vacation coming up. I’m so excited for you guys and can I ask one question? Can I come too?
    Extra Magic Hours are a special benefit available for Guests staying at Walt Disney World Resort hotels and partner hotels. They give you an extra hour in the morning and two hours in the evening at select theme parks each day to capture more of the thrills, fun, and pixie dust. To see which theme parks offer Extra Magic Hours check out the parks hours calendar. Remember, this is a benefit for Guests with a Disney Resort Hotel reservation and for select partner hotel Guests; all other Guests will have to wait for regular theme park hours. If your family is also staying at a Disney Parks Resort hotel then they will be able to join you.

    Disney Dad Tip: Since you have family visiting with you I would suggest purchasing a Memory Maker. With Memory Maker, which is a program through the Disney PhotoPass Service, Disney PhotoPass Photographers will capture every magical moment and even some spectacular Magic Shots. These photos are connected to your My Disney Experience account for unlimited downloads. The best part if that everyone gets to be in the pictures instead of having a designated family photographer.

    Allison, enjoy your trip from the Peach State as you make many Magical Memories.
