    I have heard of the extra magic hours and am rather confused. I have heard that you have to pay for it and that you have to win it and that it doesn't exist! Could you please tell me what it is and if you have to pay for it and if it even exists! Thanks!:)

    Hello Jill!

    Extra magic hours are one of the benefits of staying at a Disney resort. Every day one of the theme parks will open one hour early or stay open up to three hours past the normal closing times - just for Disney resort guests. This is a great opportunity to visit some of the more popular attractions while there are fewer crowds. Not all of the attractions participate in extra magic hours, but you will have plenty to choose from!

    You do not have to pay extra or win anything to take advantage of extra magic hours. The only thing you need is your Disney resort ID and a valid park ticket. Have fun!
