What Are Disney Extra Magic Hours

Walt Disney World is the most visited theme park in the world. The average daily attendance at just the Magic Kingdom is over 50,000 people. That means crowds. People do not like crowds so Disney has some special programs like Extra Magic Hours.

What are Extra Magic Hours?

Extra Magic Hours are special times that only select guests can enter the park. Sometimes they are offered in the morning and sometimes in the evening.  If they are offered in the morning it is generally one hour before the park opens to all guests. If it is evening hours the park is normally open two hours after the park closes. Continue reading What Are Disney Extra Magic Hours

Disney After Hours Summer 2018

Walt Disney World is a great place to go (I know big surprise you would find that opinion here) but that does not mean everything is great. One thing that is not great is sharing the parks with up to 50,000 other people. Disney knows this and Disney also knows some people will pay for the privilege of having lower crowds.  That is why they offer Disney After Hours. This year the event will be returning the Magic Kingdom on select nights from June through September.

What is Disney After Hours?

Disney After Hours is a hard ticket event. That means your standard Disney admission ticket will not get you into the event. You must purchase a special ticket for the event and Disney limits the number of tickets available. Unlike normal theme park tickets the tickets for this event are date specific and are normally non-refundable. Continue reading Disney After Hours Summer 2018
