    Last year i stayed at magic kingdom during my extra stay hours but everything was closed and we couldn't do anything but walk around, is this usually the same everyday or only on certain days

    Hi Desarie!

    Are you sure that was an Extra Magic Hour evening?  It doesn't sound like it, because most of the attractions are actually open during Extra Magic Hours.  What you described sounds like what happens on every night when the Magic Kingdom "closes".  Basically all of the attractions shut down at a certain time, but guests are allowed to stay in the Magic Kingdom a little longer.  In fact, a lot of guests like to linger in the Magic Kingdom as late as possible to witness something called "The Kiss Goodnight'".

    Every day, one park (but not every park) offers either Morning Extra Magic Hours or Evening Extra Magic Hours.  You will want to find out the schedule ahead of time, which can be done online, or once you arrive.

    I hope this helps!  Write back with more questions!
