    Erin from MI Asked

    What is the difference between Extra Magic Hours and Early Morning Magic? If you are staying at a Disney Resort, do you need to purchase Early Morning Magic passes? What more do you get? Do you need to reserve Extra Magic Hours or do you just show up?

    Hey, hey Erin and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Early, morning, evening, extra are all words to describe the different types of theme park magic Mickey shares with his Guests. Magic Kingdom Park is called the "Most Magical Place on Earth" for this very reason.

    Extra Magic Hours is complimentary and available for all Guests staying at a Disney Parks Resort Hotel or a participating Good Neighbor Hotel. On select mornings you may enter a specified theme park an hour before it officially opens and during evening Extra Magic Hours stay up to two hours after the theme park closes to regular day Guests. All you need is a MagicBand or Admission Card to enjoy the attractions as no reservation is required.

    Disney Early Morning Magic takes place in two separate theme parks and each event requires a special ticket reservation purchase. Disney Early Morning Magic - Fantasyland and Disney Early Morning Magic - Toy Story Land allow you early entrance into these designated areas to enjoy endless trips on your favorite attractions and have a delicious breakfast in the theme park. All occurring before regular day Guests are allowed on the attractions. These events have limited tickets thus very low crowds. How many times do you think you can dig, dig, dig for gems on the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train or spring into action on Slinky Dog Dash? To reserve your spot contact the Disney Reservation Center at (407) 827-7350 or purchase online. To make the reservation online, select link above or the "Things to Do" tab at the top of the Walt Disney World Resort webpage. Next choose "All Reservations" and scroll down alphabetically to the "Ds" for Disney Early Morning Magic. The link will take you to the event webpage where on the right side you may "Check Availability" to reserve your spot

    I hope this clears up any confusion.

    Disney Dad Tip: My favorite place to keep my Disney vacation plans organized is on the My Disney Experience mobile app. With access to FastPass+ selections, Disney PhotoPass Service photos, Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering, wait times, interactive maps, and theme park shopping, this is the best planning tool Mickey ever created.

    Erin, enjoy making many Magical Memories.
