    Is there a way to purchase magic hours if you are not a guest at a Walt Disney Resort?

    Hi Trish!

    Extra Magic Hours are a great way to make the most of your time at the Walt Disney World Resort!  Unfortunately, since Extra Magic Hours are a complementary benefit only available to Guests staying at participating hotels, you can't purchase them.  That being said, there are still plenty of ways to make sure you experience as much of the magic as possible!

    First, make sure you take advantage of FastPass+, which is included with park admission.  Also, make sure you check out some of the amazing tour options in the Enchanting Extras Collection!  Many tours will give you expedited access to popular shows and attractions!  Although all of the VIP tours are incredible, one of my favorites is the Ultimate Nights of Adventure VIP Tour at Disney's Animal Kingdom.  Being able to see Disney's Animal Kingdom come alive at night and experience some of the most popular attractions after dark is simply magical!

    Lastly, make sure you check out Disney After Hours and Disney Early Morning Magic - Fantasyland, both of which will allow you to experience some of the most popular attractions without the crowds!

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
