    I just purchased my park tickets and trying to plan which day we go to which park. How do I know which park has magic hours so I can choose that one?

    Hi Stephanie!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I am sure you will find this calendar very useful when planning your park days at Walt Disney World Resort.  It will show you all the opening hours, including whether any park is offering Extra Magic Hours, and also the times of shows, parades, fireworks etc.  You can filter the list by date, by park, and it also includes both water parks - Disney's Typhoon Lagoon and Disney's Blizzard Beach.

    Extra Magic Hours are exclusively offered to Guests staying at Disney Resort hotels.  The park will open an hour early or stay open after the park has closed, offering lower crowds and shorter standby lines for select attractions within each park.  I really like to arrive early at the parks - there is something very magical about any of the theme parks when they are waking up for the day, especially for Extra Magic Hours.  You will have more opportunity for photos without other people inadvertently wandering into the background!  I also tend to book my FastPass+ reservations outside of Extra Magic Hours (when the park opens to all Guests), as you may not have to wait for long in most of the standby queues (this excludes any of those very popular attractions, such as Avatar Flight of Passage, Slinky Dog Dash and Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, to name a few, when a FastPass+ reservation is always a good idea).

    If you are driving to the theme parks, the parking lots will open at least an hour before park opening, and any complimentary Disney Transport will begin operating from Disney Resort hotels around 45 minutes before park opening (including for Extra Magic Hours).

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World Resort.
