Walt Disney World’s New Extra, Extra Magic Hours Give Disney Property Guests Earlier Access To Parks!

Staying at a Disney Property has never had more perks! This Fall park visitors staying on property will have more opportunities to take advantage of the Extra Magic Hours benefit with Extra, Extra Magic Hours for a limited time at Walt Disney World theme parks!

This means you will be able to get to the park earlier and enjoy your favorite rides before the general population is allowed to enter.

Is it possible we won’t have to wait 2 hours to ride The Flight of Passage?
