    Just wondering if there is early admission to the parks on certain days for on property Disney hotel guests?

    Hi Debbie,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! 

    One of the benefits of staying at a Walt Disney World Resort is the ability to have access to the parks before the park opens for the day or after the park closes. Extra Magic Hours are a way to enjoy time in the park with limited crowds.

    When it comes to attendance, everyone has their own thoughts on attending Extra Magic Hours. For the mornings, go if you can get up early without creating an issue later in the day with fatigue. Evening hours tend to be for those night owls or teenagers. It is also a great time to get photos with limited guests in the background.

    The one park my family does not ever participate in Extra Magic Hours is Disney's Hollywood Studios. This park is small and the attractions which are open early or late are packed. In addition, it also creates an issue with FastPass+ selection. We will move our days around to skip this park during Extra Magic Hours.

    Wishing you a magical day!
