    Hi, we are heading to Disney & would like to know if there is EMH or if i can get into park early as i am staying at POR. Any advice on how to do this when i have breakfasts booked as i would like to take advantage of EMH and save on fast passes.

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Tiffany! You must be counting down the days to your trip to Walt Disney World Resort. A little bit of planning is the key to having an extra magical vacation, so you've come to the right place with your question about Extra Magic Hours.

    Extra Magic Hours are one of the many benefits of being a guest at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, and since you'll be staying at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside, that includes you! Each day, a different Walt Disney World Resort theme park opens an hour early or stays open up to two hours later than the posted operating hours, exclusively for the enjoyment of Resort Hotel guests. This gives you the opportunity to experience your favorite attractions while there are fewer guests in the parks.

    I'm looking at the calendar for the time frame of your arrival, and it looks like each day there will be a different theme park opening at 8 a.m. for Extra Magic Hours. With some table-service and buffet dining locations at Walt Disney World Resort Hotels taking breakfast reservations as early as 7:00 a.m., it might be possible to enjoy your meal and get to your favorite park with a little bit of time to spare before it opens to all guests. This works best if your family are early risers! There are also Extra Magic Hours in the evening at Magic Kingdom during your stay, so you can take advantage of fewer guests in the park at night as well. That might be your best bet, as timing will be tight if you want to enjoy Extra Magic Hours after your breakfast reservations.

    Have a magical day, Tiffany!
