    Hi, We are staying at AofA in Dec. We understand how EMH work, but how do you past the crowds to enter the park? In the past we found ourselves mixed in the regular lines waiting for park opening unsure how to get in? Is there a separate EMH entrance? TY

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Michael!

    I can't wait for you to dive into the whimsical world of Disney's Art of Animation Resort!  It is so fun how as you walk around this resort, you feel like you have stepped into the world of Cars, The Lion King and The Little Mermaid.

    I am glad to hear you are taking advantage of Extra Magic Hours while staying on property.  This is one of the best benefits of staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel.  During our stay last week, my family was able to ride Seven Dwarfs Mine Train three times in a row during these special hours for resort guests!

    When my family arrived each morning, we were able to find the park entrance for resort guests using Extra Magic Hours by looking for a Cast Member holding a sign to direct us.  It typically was on one of the far ends of the park entrance area.  If you are unsure, or you do not see an Extra Magic Hours sign, feel free to approach any Cast Member in the ticket or entrance area and they will direct you to the correct place to enter the park!

    Use your My Disney Experience App during your visit to see park hours, attraction wait times and to take advantage of mobile ordering for many of the quick service dining locations.  Having all of this information in the palm of your hand is real magic!

    The Disney Parks Moms Panel is available at every magical hour of the day to help you with any questions you may have about your upcoming vacation.  Stop by and visit us again!

    See ya real soon!  Angie
