    Can you please tell me about early morning hours? Is that for everyone staying at the DW resorts or is it limited? It looks like either hours are not available at this time, or you need a ticket and all tickets are taken already? We're going in July.

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Nicole! Your trip in July is going to be here before you know it, so I'm happy to walk you through some of the early morning options for enjoying the theme parks at Walt Disney World Resort. 

    The first one is Extra Magic Hours. Every day, there's a different theme park that is open before or after its regular hours exclusively for the enjoyment of guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel. If you're staying at one of the resort hotels and you have a theme park ticket for the day, this includes you! It's included in your admission, so there's no extra cost associated. Extra Magic Hours are usually made available about six months in advance, so I can already see the times for your upcoming trip on the calendar. Park hours and Extra Magic Hours are subject to change, so have an occasional look at the calendar as your vacation gets closer.

    The other early morning option you might be thinking of is Disney Early Morning Magic in Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom Park. On select Sundays and Tuesdays, there is a special event where a limited number of guests can enter Fantasyland before the park opens to everyone - breakfast included! This is a great chance to get to ride some of your favorite attractions with little to no wait. You need theme park admission plus a ticket for Disney Early Morning Magic for this experience, and dates are available through August for this extremely popular event. If you're not seeing availability for your dates online, you can call the Disney Reservation Center at (407) 827-7350 to see if there are any tickets still available for purchase.

    Have a magical day, Nicole!

I'm a personal stylist and I live in Texas with my husband and our three rescue animals. We are Disney Parks-obsessed and love enjoying all the magic that's out there especially for grown-ups.

I'm thrilled to be on the planDisney Panel and I'm excited to share everything I've learned from all of our trips and help you plan a memorable family vacation.  Learn More About Jessica
