    We will be staying at the Art of Animation Resort from March 24 - 31, 2018. Do the extra magic hours currently listed remain the same throughout the year? Thank you, Lisa

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Lisa! I always love to hear from other Ohio families that are getting ready to vacation with Disney! March is a wonderful time to head south to escape that chilly weather that will still be lingering in Ohio and enjoy a warm vacation at Walt Disney World!

    Extra Magic Hours vary throughout the year with different seasons. While you might get a rough idea of the types of Extra Magic Hours by looking at the current offerings, you won't know until a few month before your trip what the Extra Magic Hours will be. Rest assured, though, that by the time you get to book your Fast Passes, you'll see those hours listed and you can plan your FastPass Plus reservations based on those. I really enjoy the early Extra Magic Hour when resort guests get into the park an hour before the public. We experience so much during that first hour before it gets crowded. It's really a time-saver, and helps us to slow down the rest of the day and really enjoy the magic in the details instead of feeling so rushed. I do highly recommend you take advantage of those Extra Magic Hours!

    You'll love your stay at Art of Animation Resort. No matter which section of the resort your room is in, I hope you'll check out the pools in all the sections, especially my favorite: the Radiator Springs Cars area and the Cozy Cone Pool. If your family members are Cars fans, you'll all delight in taking photos with your favorite Cars characters there and feeling like you're really in Radiator Springs! My kids especially love having our own cone cabana at the pool. They get a real kick out of that every time, plus it makes for fun photos!

    Have fun planning, Lisa!
