It’s May the 4th and the Force is strong at the Walt Disney World Resort with today’s exciting, out-of-this-galaxy update that this fall, guests of Disney Resort hotels and other select hotels will have more opportunities to take advantage of the Extra Magic Hours benefit with Extra, Extra Magic Hours for a limited time.

The Extra, Extra Magic Hours benefit will include Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, as well as other experiences at Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Magic Kingdom theme parks. Here’s the full schedule of Extra, Extra Magic Hours:

  • 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.

(Please note that on Aug. 29-31, Disney’s Hollywood Studios will open at 6 a.m. for all guests. There will not be Extra, Extra Magic Hours on those days.)

I asked this info and everyone is unsure yet. GR at Studios said 8 hr expected time to get into the park with a long wait to enter the area itself, I was told I could be in like at 2am on the 29th so i’ll keep checking back in. Got a resort ticket that day but it doesn’t appear to help.

The standard is that buses roll forty-five minutes before the first park opens. If that’s gonna change, it’ll require another press release.

Are they then going back to the regular extra magic hours in November? The parks are going to stay crowded through the holiday season. They better do something. Because it will be even more crazy. I’m not happy they are taking away evening extra magic hours. They keep increasing prices and taking away benefits. Shame on them.
