    Hello! I am traveling to Disney World early May. I was looking on the My Disney Experience app this morning and I noticed there were wait times for rides in parks even though those park did not have early morning magic hours. Why is that?

    Hi John,

    A vacation just in time to enjoy the last few days of spring at Walt Disney World Resort sounds amazing.

    The My Disney Experience mobile app is such a great tool. It gives you quick access to attraction wait times, real time bus information from your Resort Hotel, and so much more. You can also make dining reservations, FastPass+ selections and now, you can even enjoy a delicious meal with little or no wait with Mobile Ordering.

    Wait times posted are real-time estimates based on crowds at a particular time. But if you see them before regular park opening hours, it is possible that a special event like Early Morning Magic or Extra Magic Hours is being held. Also at times, Guests may be allowed into a Theme Park before the scheduled opening time, as with the recently opened lands of Pandora - The World of Avatar, and Toy Story Land.

    One last tip: some restaurants offer dining reservations before a park opens. One of my favorite places is Be Our Guest Restaurant. See you real soon!
