    When the parks open extra, extra early do their restaurants open extra early as well?

    Hi Lois,

    My family LOVES taking advantage of Extra Magic Hours. There's just something about soaking up the magic during the crisp, fresh start of the day or squeezing out every last drop of fun that we can at the end of the day.

    For mornings this fall between September 1 and November 2, Disney Resort hotel Guests will be able to start the day bright and early with up to three hours of magic and fun in the theme parks before they open to everyone. Extra, Extra Magic Hours will take place daily at Disney's Hollywood Studios between 6 AM - 9 AM and at Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park and Magic Kingdom park from 7 AM - 8 AM. I'm happy to let you know that yes, select Quick-Service and Table-Service dining locations will be open in the theme parks during those times, so if your tumbly gets rumbly like Winnie the Pooh's, you'll be able to find something delicious to eat. I'd encourage you to make a dining reservation if you'd like to sit down during that time for a Table-service meal, but if you just want to grab a scrumptious bite without needing a reservation, you'll be able to do so at a Quick-Service location. It will be a wonderful time to experience beloved classics as well as new favorites, and I hope you have a BLAST taking advantage of extra, Extra Magic Hours!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Lois, and please feel free to let us know if there's anything else we can help you with as you're planning your fall getaway. I hope that you have a truly magical vacation!
