Mom And Daughter Inside Disney hotel

    Have booked a timeshare at the Animal Kingdom Villas for April 27-May 4, 2014. Would like to know if there is a way to find out the Extra Magic Hours for this week in order to make my dining reservations to coincide with the early entry times? Thank you.

    Hi Anna,

    Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - both Kidani Village and Jambo House - are lovely resorts!  I love the rich decor, and being able to look outside of nearly every window to see exotic animals is amazing.

    Currently, Disney has released Walt Disney World theme park hours and Extra Magic Hours up to April 23, 2014.  My guess is that very soon, you will be able to see these for the dates you are travelling.  I recommend that you keep an eye on the link that I provided.  By clicking on the little calendar at the top, you will be able to see when more hours are released.

    You can make dining reservations by visiting Disney Dining Online or calling (407) WDW-DINE (407) 939-3463.  There are some times when it is possible to make a dining reservation that begins before a theme park opens.  If the Disney Dining system allows you to do this, go ahead and make the reservation even if you do not know if the park will have Extra Magic Hours that morning.  If you have a reservation which occurs before the park opens, when you arrive at the theme park, you will find a cast member with a list of people who have early morning dining reservations and you will be allowed into the theme park for your reservation.  I have to say, this is a very cool experience!  We once had reservations at Hollywood & Vine in Disney's Hollywood Studios before the park opened, and it was really exciting to watch our daughter run through the park before anyone else was there.

    I hope that this information helps, Anna!  Have a wonderful time planning your vacation, and please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
