    We are staying two nights at a Disney Resort and going to the parks within our 14 day window of our stay. Are we able to use extra magic hours at the parks?

    Hi Amanda,

    Thanks for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I hope you're having a blast planning for and dreaming about your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation. You're going to have such a great time!

    I'm happy to let you know that as a guest staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you will be able to take advantage of Extra Magic Hours and either enter a theme park one hour early or stay two hours late. You may check Park Hours for Extra Magic Hours availability. You will be welcome to participate in this benefit from the day you check in through the end of the day that you check out of your Disney Resort hotel. My family LOVES taking advantage of the smaller crowds and soaking up every bit of fun with this great perk.

    Did you know that another great benefit of staying at a Disney Resort hotel is that you have access to make your FastPass+ selections earlier? Beginning at 7:00 a.m. Eastern time 60 days before you check in, you'll be able to make FastPass+ selections for the entire length of time you'll be staying at a Disney Resort hotel, up to 14 days. You'll also receive complimentary MagicBands that you may personalize in My Disney Experience.

    I hope you and your loved ones have a truly magical vacation, Amanda, and please let us know if you have any other questions!
