    Can you stay at the Sports Resort or Movie Resort to get magic hours?

    Hey, Jason! Visiting Walt Disney World Resort is always a magical experience, but how would you like an extra spoonful of magic? Well, I have some great information to share with you this evening that is sure to put a smile on your face. Extra Magic Hours are a fantastic benefit to all guests staying in a Disney Resort Hotel. Yep, that's all guests in all of those resorts, no matter if they are Value, Moderate, Deluxe, or Deluxe Villas. The three Disney's All-Star Resorts are categorized into the Disney Value Resorts. If you do pick one of them (Sports, Movies, or Music) as your resort of choice, then you will be able to take part in Extra Magic Hours.

    Be sure to check out the schedule for each day you plan to visit a park to see which one is hosting either morning or evening Extra Magic Hours. If you are visiting the park that is opening an hour early for Disney Resort Hotel guests, then know that Disney transportation will begin extra early to help you make it to the park on time. You can even use the My Disney Experience mobile app to keep track of bus arrival times so you know when is the best time to get the family out of the gift shop in time to make it to the bus stop!

    Thanks so much for stopping by with your question and please let us know if you have any others as you continue to plan your pixie-dusted adventures!
