RUMOR: Animal Kingdom to Offer Nightly Extra Magic Hours During AVATAR Opening Summer

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

From what we are being told, nightly Extra Magic Hours for Disney resort guests at Disney’s Animal Kingdom might be a thing once Pandora: The World of AVATAR opens.

According to sources, Disney’s Animal Kingdom will offer nightly Extra Magic Hours from May 27th through July 4th, 2017. Extra Magic Hours are exclusive to Walt Disney World resort hotel guests and allow them private time to experience attractions, dining, and more. In the evening, these events are usually two hours long, occurring right after park opening. There is no word as of yet how long these nightly offerings at Animal Kingdom will be though, as Disney has never offered them on so many consecutive nights at one park before.

With the incredible demand Disney is expecting for Pandora: The World of AVATAR this Summer, it seems they are trying to make sure that their resort guests get a chance to see everything the new land has to offer.

This is still just rumored at this time. Disney has yet to officially announce these Extra Magic Hours changes.

      • Thank god for ad blockers. Tom isn’t getting a dime from my clicks. Enjoy your pointless clicks Tom!

  • Seriously? Evening EMH right after park opening? Maybe you should stand in front of Pandora and yell at everyone that tries to get in without staying on property. That’d make about as much sense as half the nonsense you post on here.

  • Interesting as, as of right now opening day is an early morning extra magic hour at AK. Which is why we’re doing the park that day during our upcoming trip. Wonder if that will change.

  • Thanks for the info Tom-I’ll be there in June & this advanced heads-up will affect my park plans. Keep up the great site &I thank you.
