    What are magic hours? Do I have to purchase a separate ticket to attend if I already have a ticket for that park that day?


    Thanks for your question!

    Extra Magic Hours are a benefit extended to Disney Resort Hotel guests, allowing them extra time in the parks. They are typically either a Morning or Evening Extra Magic Hours. They let those guests into a select park an hour before the normal opening time in the case of Morning hours, or they can stay several hours (typically around 3) after normal park closing, in the case of Evening hours. 

    Disney indicates for what park the hours are offered, and whether they are Morning or Evening, via the calendar on their website. By the way, not all attractions will be open, but most of them will, so it is a great way to get in some extra ride time with slightly smaller crowds. 

    The guests of the following resorts can participate;
