    We are staying in a Disney resort for a week however we want to start using our 8 day park hopper tickets 2 days before we check in to our hotel can we still use the early morning magic hours on these days? Thanks in advance

    Hi Natalie, and thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.

    I love being able to squeeze in a few extra hours of theme park fun without the crowds. That is one of my favorite reasons for staying at a Disney Resort Hotel. Guests who are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel will be able to take advantage of an extra hour in the morning or up to three hours in the evening at select theme parks. Hours and schedules are subject to change.

    A valid resort hotel ID and theme park admission are required to participate in Extra Magic Hours. Since you are resort guests, but coming in early, your resort hotel ID will not be active until your check-in date. You can make FastPass+ reservations 30 days before your arrival for the days that you are not staying on property and 60 days before your check-in date. This will still help you save time waiting in the Standby lines for some of your favorite rides and attractions. If you have any more questions before you arrive, please come back and visit us again.

    See ya real soon,
