    Hi, During Magic Hours, the shows mentioned in the schedule alone will be open? If so, is it a good idea to avoid going to those attractions during daytime and visit those attractions during evening magic hours? Are all restaurants open during magic hours?

    Hi Chitra,

    Our strategy during morning Extra Magic Hours is to do as many attractions as possible.  For example, at the Magic Kingdom we can do nearly all of the rides at Fantasyland during the time that the park is open only for Disney resort guests.  Our basic rule is to do as much of our "must-sees" as possible while making sure to have a set of fast passes from another favorite attraction to use later in the morning.

    As for the evening Extra Magic Hours, we actually don't utilize them as much because we find them crowded. However, when we do visit we just go to where the lines are shorter and what interests us.  I'd hate to have you avoid an attraction during the day hoping to visit it during an evening Extra Magic Hour only to find it having a long line. 

    During Extra Magic Hours, there are some restaurants open -- but not all of them.  When you visit the parks, you'll be able  to obtain a list of which ones are open during Extra Magic Hours.
