Welcome to those of you joining me from Joanna and her Amazing Technicolor Interwebs and to those of you just hopping aboard, I am the 4th stop on our Magical Blogorail Peach.
This month's topic has to do with the best value at a Disney Park, so I think that the Extra Magic Hours that are included with park admission (for resort guests) not only adds to the fun and excitement but, can really save time and give you more value for your money.
When we are planning our vacation, one of the things we take advantage of are the extra magic hours at each park. We look up the schedule on http://disneyworld.disney.go.com/plan/calendar/extramagichours/ under Disney Parks and get the days each park has it's extra magic, either morning or night hours. I find this very helpful when planning our WDW trip because, if you are like our family we try to see and do everything. We feel the real value is getting more time to do all the things you love at the parks. It's a great feeling to take your time because, you know that you'll have until let's say midnight or even later to do it all.

One of our best experiences came in our 2004 trip when the kids were 5 and 7 and we went to the Magic Kingdom. This night it was open till 3a.m. and this was during the Easter break when everything was open extra late. We made it till about 2a.m. with hardly any lines for characters and the rides. We were exhausted the next day but, we slept late and then headed to Epcot which had the next days extra magic hours. We follow the Extra Magic Hours like clockwork and we usually get to do everything we want.
Another reason this is such a great value is because, if you want to spend some extra time at your resort it's not a problem to sleep in or go to the pool first. The extra hours still let you enjoy both and not feel like you will miss something. The extra hours allow you to get to the parks around noon, and still have plenty of time to see/do everything. Sometimes we would leave in the middle of day and go swim or have lunch at another resort like Polynesian, especially at the Kona Cafe it is one of our favorites..
