Confused about early openings

Hi -- thought I was all set on this then read about Extra Magic Hours for families with toddlers. How does this differ from the already posted early morning hours? Are they on different days and is just Fantasy Land opened on those days? Ack??!! Please help. Thanks in advance.

All of the parks have designated Extra Magic Hours days. They may vary from week to week. Sometimes the extra hours are in morning and sometimes they are at night. You can check the Disney calendar for the exact days.

On top of that the Magic Kingdom is opening Fantasyland attractions an hour early on Sundays, Wednesdays and Fridays until Sept. 30th. Those are days when EMHs are either at night or not at the Magic Kingdom at all.

Hope this helps! I may have confused you more. LOL

To make it simple: families with little ones can enter the Magic Kingdom at 8:00 instead of 9:00 until Sept. 30th on Sunday, Wednesday, and Friday but only the Fantasyland Attractions will be open.

After I read my previous post, I confused myself a little. LOL
