Walt Disney World Adds Extra Magic Hours to Animal Kingdom Every Night Through August 19th

We are so excited that Walt Disney World has announced additional Extra Magic Hours for Disney’s Animal Kingdom.  It is now official that there will be Extra Magic Hours every night through August 19th.  With the popularity of the opening of Pandora – The World of Avatar the attractions have held consistently long lines and maintained a high level of popularity.  The land is expected to maintain this popularity for a quite some time.  With the additional traffic to the area, Extra Magic Hours has become a huge perk for resort guests, and allows them a less crowded opportunity to experience the new, immersive land.

Extra Magic Hours is one of the incentives that guests get from staying at a resort on Walt Disney World property.  The park will either open early or stay open late only for resort guests.  If you don’t have a Magic Band linked to a resort reservation then you won’t be able to do anything within the park during Extra Magic Hours events.  With Animal Kingdom’s Extra Magic Hours, the park will stay open later into the evening allowing resort guests to enjoy the bio-luminescent surroundings of Pandora.  It is a great opportunity and probably the best time to visit the land.  This allows resort guests to enjoy other parks or attractions during the day and then visit Pandora at night.

Who will be visiting Walt Disney World between now and August 19th?  Who plans to take advantage of these newly announced Extra Magic Hours for Pandora – The World of Avatar?

About Christy Caby

I am a long time Disney addict! This love began as a child and stayed with me in my teen years. I completed the Disney College Program, was engaged and honeymooned at Disney, visited WDW while pregnant with each of our two boys, and have brought our boys since they were babies (they are now 5 and 2). We have over 10 Disney World vacations under our belt. Our recent adventure was a big move from St. Louis, MO to Florida! We knew that we needed more Disney magic that just a couple times of year, and we worked hard to make it happen! Now we hit the parks almost every weekend! We are working to dine at every location, experience every attraction and look for every hidden Mickey! We want to be able to say that we have one it all! We are branching into the Cruise Line and are planning a trip to Disneyland in California next year. To say that we are Disney addicts may be an understatement. When I am not at WDW with my family, I am reading Disney blogs and news, crafting (usually Disney décor for our home), planning Disney vacations for others or working on my dissertation for my doctoral program. I am a Project Manager by profession, so I have mastered fitting everything into a tight schedule! We feel we lead an exciting life where we get to spend a lot of time together doing what we love! I love being able to this love and Disney magic with everyone else so that others can make the most of whatever time they get to have at the most magical place on earth!
