Disneyland Paris: Extra Magic Time

One or two hours during which Disneyland Park or Walt Disney Studios Park is open just for you? Well, not just for you, but for an exclusive group. Because only guests staying at one of the Disney Hotels or Villages Nature Paris or in possession of an Annual Passport Magic Plus or Infinity will be able to access one or both Disney Parks and the attractions already open during the Extra Magic Time.

There are exceptions to this rule, especially in the low season. In November, January and February, there are usually individual days when this offer is not available or periods when the time is shortened, for example, when it does not start until 8:30 am. It is best to have a look at the official opening hours to get an overview before you arrive.

Originally, the Extra Magic Hours were almost exclusively at Disneyland Park. Special opening hours of the Walt Disney Studios were really rare and usually only occurred once a year, whenever the change from Halloween to Christmas took place (early November). Since 2017 this is different. Now the offer is called Extra Magic Time and takes place in both theme parks. Usually from 8:30 to 10:00, although there are always exceptions. As mentioned above, it's best to take a look at the calendar.
In earlier years, the special opening hours were also available after the park closed, but this regulation of a separate evening opening of the parks seems to be completely abolished at the moment.

During the Extra Magic Hours, not all attractions in the park are open, so that it can be that you have to wait a little for one or the other highlight. Also the shops and most restaurants are still closed. But you can meet some of the most popular Disney characters that are waiting for you on Main Street, U.S.A.
You can find out which attractions and rides are already open in the Extra Magic Time flyer, which you can get at the hotel reception.
