    We love the opening street performance at Magic Kingdom right when it opens. When they have 8 AM - 9 AM Extra Magic Hours, does that performance happen an hour earlier? Or does it still happen like when the park opens at 9AM? Just want to plan. Thanks!

    Very soon, you’ll be walkin’ right down the middle of Main Street, U.S.A., Lisa! “The place was made with a magical plan, and right around the corner is a Fantasyland,” just like the song says. You’ll be so happy to hear that when Magic Kingdom has Extra Magic Hours starting at 8am, everything will begin at that time.

    Disney won’t hold back when Walt Disney World Resort guests enter the park for Extra Magic Hours. Just as with a regular park day, you can enter main Street U.S.A. up to 45-60 minutes before the park opens. You’ll be able to get coffee, browse the shops and perhaps play some Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom as you wait for the Let The Magic Begin Welcome Show right at 8am (if that’s when the schedule of Extra Magic Hours begins). Then you can stay on Main Street for a trolley ride or venture out into Tomorrowland, Fantasyland or my favorite Adventureland for some early morning fun.  Occasionally, only portion of the park will be open for Extra Magic Hours (for example, no Liberty Square or Frontierland), but please check with a Cast Member on the morning of your park arrival.

    If you have anymore questions about the perks of staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, please let me know. I’m ready to help! ~ Lindsey P.
