May the Fourth be with You | Extra Magic Hours Announced for Galaxy’s Edge

I’ve told you before that it pays to stay inside the disney bubble, And Now Walt Disney World is backing that shit up with Extra Magic Hours for resort guests and including Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge. They DID NOT have to do this because you know damn well your geek-ass would have paid for the privilege, so this is a big perk. Check out the official release from the Disney Parks blog below.

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 at our theme parks! 

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 rundown: 

  • 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.

Also, not all Walt Disney World attractions are available with the Extra Magic Hours benefit.  Park hours and available attractions are subject to change without notice. *Applicable theme park, days and times of operation, attraction and service availability may vary and are subject to change without notice.
