    This is our first trip to WaltDisney. We are coming to Disney on April23rd from 04/23 to 04/29 with 4 yr old. I regret not booking on any of the disney resort. We are staying outside disney resort. Are we eligible for extra magic hrs. I would like more tip


    No, if you are not staying at a Disney resort you will not be eligible to use the Extra Magic Hours.

    But don't let that get you down. the truth is that you probably would not have been able to enjoy many of the evening ones with a 4-year old anyway, and the morning ones, while a nice way to get another hour in a park, are just an hour.

    What you will want to do is plan to go to parks on days that they are NOT having Extra Magic Hours, that way you can go where the crowds might be a bit lighter. If it were me I would go to these parks on these days;

    • April 23 - Magic Kingdom
    • April 24 - Epcot
    • April 25 - Hollywood Studios
    • April 26 - Magic Kingdom
    • April 27 - Animal Kingdom
    • April 28 - Magic Kingdom
    • April 29 - Departure Day
    I am glad to answer any follow-up questions!

    Have a magical vacation!
