    If I'm staying on-site Thursday and Friday what days do I get extra magic hours? Thanks!!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Kristy!

    There are so many benefits to staying as a guest at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel. Access to Extra Magic Hours represents one of my favorite benefits. It's so nice to enjoy the four Disney theme parks in Florida either early in the morning or late in the evening. It allows Disney Resort hotel guests to make the most of the attractions when the parks are less crowded than midday. 

    If you are staying on property in a Disney-owned hotel on Thursday and Friday nights, you can make use of morning and evening Extra Magic Hours from the morning of your check-in day (Thursday) until the last theme park closes on check-out day (Saturday). That's three days' worth of Extra Magic Hours for staying two nights in a Walt Disney World Resort hotel. 

    You can always see which theme park is offering Extra Magic Hours by visiting the online calendars for the parks. I do hope you get to experience the new Toy Story Land during Extra Magic Hours. The lines to Slinky Dog Dash and Alien Swirling Saucers are shortest early in the morning, and I've heard that this exciting new land is incredibly gorgeous with its blinking lights at night

    Have fun and do let us know if you have any more questions about your upcoming trip. We'd love to provide whatever advice may be helpful.

    Sending best wishes and pixie dust,
