    We will be at Magic Kingdom when they have extra hours from 10p-1am.-! It seems the Park most UNlikely to have those late extra hours. What is there to do during those later hours? Are there special adult focused activities?

    Hi Emily!

    I'm sure you must be so excited knowing you will be at Walt Disney World Resort in a few short days!

    This is a great question! Extra Magic Hours are fabulous!!! My family and I were at Magic Kingdom Park a couple of weeks ago and loved hanging at the theme park late into the night!

    While you will see lots of adults, you will be amazed at the number of kiddos that can party the night away at Magic Kingdom! 

    Extra Magic Hours are similar to what you will find during standard operating hours. However, not all attractions, restaurants, and merchandise locations will be open. You will still have plenty to do, see, and enjoy! The crowds are typically lower and the temperature is usually cooler. This is particularly wonderful in the hot summer months.

    We spent our evening enjoying attractions, many of which had much shorter lines than earlier in the day. Prior to park closing, we headed to the Emporium for a souvenir and then we concluded our evening at Main Street Confectionery, where we enjoyed an evening sweet (best vacation ever)!

    Experiencing the attractions at night is so fun! Big Thunder Mountain Railroad has a different look and feel when you are riding on it in the dark. It's awesome! There are so many great attractions to experience during evening Extra Magic Hours!

    You will have plenty to keep you busy as the following attractions are open during evening Extra Magic Hours at Magic Kingdom Park:

    Astro Orbiter
    The Barnstormer
    Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
    Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin
    Country Bear Jamboree
    Dumbo the Flying Elephant
    Haunted Mansion
    "it's a small world"
    Mad Tea Party
    The Magic Carpets of Aladdin
    The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
    Mickey's PhilharMagic
    Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor
    Peter Pan's Flight
    Pirates of the Caribbean
    Prince Charming Regal Carrousel
    Seven Dwarfs Mine Train
    Space Mountain
    Swiss Family Treehouse
    Tomorrowland Speedway
    Under the Sea ~ Journey of the Little Mermaid

    I'm so excited for you! I hope you are able to include Extra Magic Hours in your vacation plans!
