Walt Disney World announce Extra, EXTRA Magic Hours

How exciting! Traditionally Walt Disney World has Extra Magic Hours (EMH) in one park per day, either in the morning or at night. However Disney have decided to alleviate some of the anticipated crowd issues, Disney has announced extra, EXTRA Magic Hours.

The Extra, Extra Magic Hours benefit will include Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, as well as other experiences at Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Magic Kingdom theme parks.

Here’s the full schedule of Extra, Extra Magic Hours:

  • Disney’s Hollywood Studios — Daily from September 1st – November 2nd, the park will have Extra, Extra Magic Hours from 6-9 a.m., including Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge, plus Toy Story Land attractions and select other attractions. (Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge and its experiences subject to capacity).

(Please note that on August 29th-31th, Disney’s Hollywood Studios will open at 6 a.m. for all guests. There will not be Extra, Extra Magic Hours on those days.)

  • Disney’s Animal Kingdom – Extra, Extra Magic Hours will happen daily August 29th – November 2nd, from 7-8 a.m., featuring Pandora The World of Avatar and other attractions throughout the park (same as today’s morning Extra Magic Hours offerings).

  • Magic Kingdom – Extra, Extra Magic Hours will happen daily from August 29th – November 2nd, from 7-8 a.m., featuring favourite attractions in Fantasyland and Tomorrowland (same as today’s morning EMH offerings).

Extra Magic Hours will continue on select days at EPCOT.

This benefit is only available for Walt Disney World resort guests.

I am slightly gutted that EEMH finishes two weeks before my visit. I would love to take part in the extra time available in the parks.

What do you think of Extra Extra Magic Hours? Are you planning to stay on property to take advantage of them? Let me know your thoughts in the comments.

  1. Love it! I’m especially excited about the fact that Disney has decided to create a Star Wars Land (Galaxy’s Edge) at both the original Disneyland Park and The Walt Disney World. As someone who has only ever visited Disneyland, I would like to hope that we will be able to achieve similar experiences at Galaxy’s Edge– regardless of the fact that yours is at Disney World and mine will *hopefully* be at Disneyland. If I’m ever lucky enough to visit Orlando in the time being, I’ll be sure to visit the park for these hours!
