    Hello! Are there parks that offer early opening/late closings if you are staying on the resort? We heard of something like this from someone who visited a while ago :)

    Hi Kerri, 

    Thank you for sending your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  You are in luck!  What you are asking about are Extra Magic Hours, available exclusively for guests staying at Walt Disney World Resort.    
    Extra Magic Hours occur daily at at least one Theme Park and are outside of regular Theme Park operating hours.  You will need to look at Theme Park Hours daily, in order to see which Theme Park has Extra Magic Hours, which are always subject to change. During Extra Magic Hours, most attractions are running and what we typically do is take advantage of lower wait times for some of the more popular attractions.  

    I would also also recommend making your FastPass+ selections on My Disney Experience 60 days prior to your Walt Disney World Resort vacation, another perk of staying at a Walt Disney World Resort.  Since you are staying on property, you will be able to make your selections for your entire visit, 60 days in advance, giving you the piece of mind that you will be able to enjoy all your must do attractions during your stay.  

    I hope you have a magical time at Walt Disney World Resort, Kerri.  Please let us know if you have any other questions, we are always happy to help.
