This is a Magical Tip/ Magical Memory in one! If you are staying at one of the WDW properties and have the opportunity to go the evening Extra Magic Hour at the Magic Kingdom that runs until the early morning hours, make sure you go! On a visit over Thanksgiving week, we made a point to go back to the hotel and nap midday so we could stay up and go to the park’s Evening Extra Magic Hours. We arrived just as the fireworks started. When the fireworks ended, there was a mad rush by most Guests to the gates, yet we were able to fight the crowd and made our way toward the back of the park. This was the beginning of our favorite memory of the week. We rode everything we wanted to and had no lines at most rides. I remember walking straight though to a waiting boat on Pirates of the Caribbean! We wanted to walk through and see Fantasyland and ended up riding the Under the Sea ~ Journey of The Little Mermaid! It ended up being a great ride! And of course I left humming the music. At times, we felt like the only ones in the park. The only other people we saw were cast members! Make sure to take advantage of these late night Extra Magic Hours if they are available when you are vacationing at WDW! It’s worth it and your kids will love it. They get to stay out late and ride and ride and ride some more. One more tip: have snacks and drinks in your hotel room when you get back. Everything is closed at 3:00 a.m. (Submitted by Keith R.)
