    I read that the way Extra Magic Hours were set up changed in 2015. Is that true and if so how are they different?

    Hi Liz!

    Thanks for sending your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! To be honest there haven't been many changes to the Extra Magic Hours system. The only thing I have noticed is that the evening Extra Magic Hours used to be 3 hours and it seems as if they have been brought down to 2 hours. Other than that, the benefits are still the same. Extra Magic Hours are offered to Guests staying at a Disney Resort Hotel, Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotels and Shades of Green Resort.

    Did you know?: Walt Disney World Resorts offer special rates from time to time on lodging and vacation packages. To view the current special offers, please visit this page: Special Offers & Deals.

     It has been a pleasure assisting you Liz! Please feel free to send in any other questions you may have.

     Thanks for sending you questions to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

     Happy Planning!
