The Four Seasons Orlando hotel near Disney’s Magic Kingdom just announced guests will be able to take advantage of Walt Disney World’s “Extra Magic Hours.” These special hours allow tourists to enjoy some private time at Walt Disney World’s four main theme parks: the Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, and Epcot.
“Extra Magic Hours” can either be an hour before the public is allowed inside a park or for one hour after normal tourists are forced to leave. The park that has “Extra Magic Hours” changes every day.
With less people in the parks, guests can easily get on some of the more popular rides without a Fastpass reservation. A few of the most difficult rides to get on in Disney World right now include Animal Kingdom’s Avatar-themed “Flight of Passage” and Hollywood Studios’ “Toy Story Midway Mania.”
These “Extra Magic Hours” used to be exclusive to guests staying at Walt Disney World’s official resorts. In December of last year, however, the seven hotels near the outdoor shopping and dining area Disney Springs announced their guests could take advantage of “Extra Magic Hours.”
Although these seven hotels near Disney Springs are on Walt Disney World property, they aren’t official Disney hotels. Most of these hotels, which include names like Holiday Inn and Best Western, are some of the cheapest on Disney property.
Unlike the Springs area hotels, the Four Seasons Orlando is one of the most luxurious and expensive on Disney property. In addition to being one of the highest reviewed hotels in Orlando, the Four Seasons has one of the best viewing spots for the Magic Kingdom’s nightly fireworks.
