    Is it necessary to stay on property to get into the parks early or stay late? Or, is there a pass you can purchase that allows the same thing?

    Hi Julie!

    One of the perks of staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel is taking advantage of Extra Magic Hours.  These are special park hours that are in the morning or evening at a particular park on designated days and are only available to Resort Guests.  You can check the Park Hours on any particular day to see the Extra Magic Hours for the day.  

    Disney Early Morning Magic at Magic Kingdom Park is available to anyone.  This special event allows early entrance to Fantasyland only on select days and includes several attractions and an all-you-care-to-enjoy breakfast at Pinocchio Village Haus.  I attended the Early Morning Magic last year and it was fantastic!  We rode Seven Dwarfs Mine Train about 8 times in a row with no wait before we headed to breakfast.  Admission is limited, so the crowds stay low before park opening.  This event is an additional fee and does require regular park admission as well.  

    Have a magical day!
