    If we have a reservation beginning on May 27, can we get into Animal Kingdom for the extra magic hours that morning?

    Hi there, Charles!

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a question for us. We're always happy to help. Your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is right around the corner and will be here before you know it. So I hope you're ready to have lots of FUN!

    One of the many benefits of staying at a Disney Resort Hotel is getting to enjoy the parks during Extra Magic Hours. When the theme parks are open during these select times, resort guests are able to enjoy some of their favorite attractions with smaller crowds are shorter wait times. So it's definitely worth getting up a little earlier or staying out a bit later! And since you're planning to arrive early on your check-in date, you can absolutely skip the front desk since you'll already have your MagicBands and head straight to the park for Extra Magic Hours. That's certainly a great way to get the most out of your vacation!

    I hope this helps you with your planning and please let us know if we can do anything else. We're here whenever you need us. I know you're going to enjoy every minute of your trip and make lots of magical memories. Have fun!
