Disney World Extra Magic Hours

Disney World offers resort guests a perk called Extra Magic Hours. This means that each day, a specific park opens an hour earlier or stays open a few hours later so that resort guests can take advantage of lower crowds. Just in time for Fall AND the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, Disney World is offering a brand NEW perk!#waltexpress #disneyworld #extramagichoursdisney extra extra magic hours
