Extra Magic Time at Disneyland Paris

Extra Magic Time was introduced at Disneyland Paris on October 1st 2017. Extra Magic Time used to be called Extra Magic Hours. Extra Magic Time allows early risers to access the park well before other guests. This means that there won’t be any or short queues; you can quickly meet characters and the park itself will look clean. Extra Magic Time also gives you a great opportunity to take photos without too many other people in the background.

How to use Extra Magic Time

In order to use Extra Magic Time, you need to make sure that you either have your Hotel Easy Pass or your Annual Pass with you.

Accessing the park

Hotel guests with the Hotel Easy Pass have a dedicated line to enter the park. Just look for the sign that says “Disney Hotel Guests”. Cast Members will be checking the Hotel Easy Pass and your entrance ticket. Make sure you have these ready. It is important that your entire party is complete, else some members will not be able to enjoy the extra hours. Do note that you only get one Hotel Easy Pass for the duration of your stay.

Disneyland Paris Infinity/Magic Plus entrance

Annual Passholders (Dream, Fantasy, Magic Plus or Infinity) can walk to the dedicated entrance which is located on the left of the turnstiles.

While in the park, you are free to roam around Main Street USA. Often other guests are also allowed into the park to prepare for rope-drop.

Accessing Fantasyland and Discoveryland

If you want to go over to Fantasyland or Discoveryland, there are ropes at the entrances of these lands. Present your Annual Pass or Hotel Easy Pass to the Cast Members at the ropes and you are good to go. Other guests still have the opportunity to walk around Main Street USA and take some photos with characters or the castle as a backdrop.
