    I am trying to figure out if the the rides are open during the extra hours at the theme parks? I understand the park is open, but when I select a ride it says the hours are the regular business hours and not open at 8am when the extra hours start that day.

    Hello Mark!

    Extra Magic Hours are an incredible way to get in some extra time in the magic of the parks and even some extra rides on your favorite attractions. That's right!  Many of your favorite rides and attractions are open during Extra Magic Hours! One of my favorite Disney memories with my eldest is riding Splash Mountain, time and time again during Extra Magic Evening Hours several years ago. I don't know how many times in a row we rode, but it was definitely several and his adorable laughter was contagious each time we splashed down at the bottom of the drop and got soaked.

    Unfortunately, I don't have a list of open or available attractions and they do change frequently, but you should be able to do a search online and see lists put together by one of the third-party Disney Fansites. 

    Have a delightful Disney-day, Mark, and please let us know if there is anything else we are able to assist you with!

    Magical Wishes,
