    We are planning a trip for November 2020. Are there extra magic hours during the Christmas holiday?

    Hi, Elisa!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  It's always a pleasure to help a fellow Pennsylvanian plan their Walt Disney World Resort vacation.

    I am so excited to hEAR that you are planning to visit The Most Magical Place on Earth during the holiday season!  The Christmas season is one of my favorite times to visit.  Nothing puts me in the holiday spirit quite like watching the Once Upon a Christmastime Parade during Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party.  Be sure to stop by Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa during your visit to marvel at the life-sized gingerbread house.

    There is so much to see and do at Walt Disney World Resort, especially around the holidays!  I'm sure you'll want to squeeze as much fun as possible into your vacation days, and Extra Magic Hours can help you do this.  Extra Magic Hours are one of the many benefits that you will receive if you will be staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel.  Each day, Walt Disney World Resort Hotel guests can experience select attractions in at least one of the theme parks, either before or after regular operating hours.

    To see when Extra Magic Hours will be taking place during your visit, you will want to check the park hours on the Walt Disney World website or on your My Disney Experience mobile app.  I just took a look for you, and the park hours for November have not yet been posted.  I recommend you keep checking the website or your app.  I'm sure that once things return to normal after the current park closures, those hours will be posted.  While I cannot say for certain what this year's holiday schedule will look like, I can tell you that in previous years there were Extra Magic Hours during the holiday season.

    If you have any additional questions as you prepare for your trip, please visit us again.  Wishing you a magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
