    Hey guys! Can someone tell me if I can take advantage of extra magic hours in the morning in one park then hop to another park for my initial 3 fastpasses, example: go to Epcot for EMH from 8-9 am then hop to animal kingdom and use my FP+’s there?

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, April! It sounds like we have a lot in common because I'm always trying to squeeze the most out of my days at Walt Disney World Resort. One of my favorite perks of staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel is exclusive time in the Theme Parks thanks to Extra Magic Hours, and I'm happy to chat with you about how to use that time in conjunction with your FastPass+ selections to maximize what you're able to do on your vacation.

    April, I'm pleased to tell you that your plans as you've described them to me sound great and it is certainly possible for you to do that. If you have an annual pass or a ticket with the Park Hopper option and you're staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you are more than welcome to start the day enjoying Extra Magic Hours at EPCOT before continuing on to Disney's Animal Kingdom where you have some FastPass+ selections lined up. While you're not able to have FastPass+ selections for more than one Theme Park at the same time, having a FastPass+ at one Theme Park will not have any effect on your ability to visit another one.

    If your family really loves to pack in as many attractions as possible, this is a great strategy! You'll be able to take advantage of the typically shorter wait times during Extra Magic Hours at EPCOT to ride favorites like Soarin' Around the World, Spaceship Earth, and Frozen Ever After, and then use that day's FastPass+ selections on popular attractions at Disney's Animal Kingdom like Avatar Flight of Passage, Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain, and Kilimanjaro Safaris! If you're feeling adventurous and want to keep the magic going, check the My Disney Experience app to see if there are any Theme Parks that have Extra Magic Hours in the evening as well. You can sleep when you get home, right?

    Have a magical day, April!
