Walt Disney World Early/Extened Theme Park Hours

(Formerly known as Extra Magic Hours)

Early Theme Park Entry is Walt Disney World's newest iteration of what was formerly known as "Extra Magic Hours" and is available daily. Extended Evening Hours are available on select nights at select theme parks for guests staying at Deluxe Resorts, Deluxe Villa Resorts, and other select resorts. The details are listed below including which Resort hotels are included and which attractions are scheduled to be open.

Although the theme parks only offer a 30-minute Early Entry at this time, that period of time can be very valuable if you're willing to get up and at 'em early in the morning. We've noticed at times that the wait time on the super popular attractions can simply be the amount of time it takes you to walk through the queue.

Early Entry can be a great way to enjoy the theme parks with lower crowds. Attractions and schedules are subject to change; be sure to check the My Disney Experience app for any changes on the day(s) you plan to visit. Request a DIsney World Vacation Quote
