Extended Extra Magic Hours added to Walt Disney World in time for Star Wars Opening


Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge is going to be huge. There’s no doubt about it. For anyone hoping to catch the first month of reservations at Disneyland, well you’re out of luck as they are completely booked up, and there’s listings on Ebay for time slots starting out at $1,500.

But if you’re hoping to catch the new land at Walt Disney World in August, you might just be in luck. If you’re staying at one of the onsite hotels, you’ll have EXTRA extra magic hours each day from September 1st until November 1st. Guests staying at a Walt Disney World resort will be able to get into the park at 6am and have the entire park to themselves until 9am! Of course that means that everyone will be crushing towards Galaxy’s Edge. But the rest of the park will also be open to enjoy as well. That means you might finally get to experience Toy Story Land!

But instead of just letting the brunt of the crowds fall on Disney’s Hollywood Studios, both Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom will also be opening their doors for guests staying onsite early as well.

Here’s the full details:

Disney’s Hollywood Studios
 — Daily from Sept. 1-Nov. 2, the park will have Extra, Extra Magic Hours from 6-9 a.m., including Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, plus Toy Story Land attractions and select other attractions. Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and its experiences subject to capacity.

Disney’s Animal Kingdom – Extra, Extra Magic Hours will happen daily Aug. 29-Nov. 2, from 7-8 a.m., featuring Pandora – The World of Avatar and other attractions throughout the park.

Magic Kingdom Park —Extra, Extra Magic Hours will happen daily from Aug. 29-Nov. 2, from 7-8 a.m., featuring favorite attractions in Fantasyland and Tomorrowland.

This looks like a solid idea for Disney to help alleviate some of the crowding issues that will surely happen with Disney’s Hollywood Studios once Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge opens. It’s still going to be an insane, but this will help guests experience it a little bit easier, if you’re staying onsite.
