    Can you Fast Pass during Extra Magic Hours? Thanks

    Hello, Kathy!

    Extra Magic Hours...such sweet-sounding words! Utilizing them can significantly reduce wait times for your favorite attractions. Every day, Guests staying at Walt Disney World Resort hotels can enjoy select attractions in one of the four theme parks, before or after regular operating hours. I like to bookmark the Park Hours schedule on my computer, so I can easily access which Park is offering them each day.  

    Unfortunately, FastPass+ is not available during Extra Magic Hours; however, it's unlikely that you would even need FastPass+ during this time anyway. I attended evening Extra Magic Hours at Epcot last night, and most attractions had a minimal wait, including Soarin' Around the World, which had a 20-minute queue. So save those FastPasses for busier times of the day, like late morning or mid-afternoon. 

    And don't forget that FastPasses can be booked in advance using the My Disney Experience App. The booking window opens up for Guests at 7:00 AM EST, 60 days before your arrival date (30 days for offsite Guests). This date is always a milestone for my family since we anxiously count down the days until our next trip (I have 99 more, but who's counting?)!

    I hope this helps, Kathy. See ya' real soon!
