    Arrow early park entry

    We're going to be at disney from march 10 - 20. What are the early entry days for that time (we're staying onsite) What day is best for each park?? Will there be any evenings during that time when a park will stay open longer for WDW resort guests?

    The days for the EMH can vary by week. They are trying to keep them the same each week but special events and such have given them a little trouble tright now.

    We went a couple of weeks ago and it was great to stay in the parks for three hours after the parked closed. Like Trendy Magic said, the days are sporatic, but there was at least one park everyday that offered early entry or extended hours. There were a couple of days that had both.

    The current schedule (this could change) for your stay is:
    Morning Evening
    3/10 N/A Epcot
    3/11 Magic Kingdom N/A
    3/12 Animal Kingdom N/A
    3/13 Magic Kingdom N/A
    3/14 Epcot N/A
    3/15 Disney Studios Animal Kingdom
    3/16 N/A Magic Kingdom
    3/17 N/A Epcot
    3/18 Magic Kingdom Disney Studios
    3/19 Animal Kingdom N/A
    3/20 N/A Disney Studios

    For early park entry days, what time do they open? Do we just show our ultimate park hopper tickets? I'm glad Epcot is open early on St Pats day. Disney doing anything special for it? Also when do they start the easter parades? (we're leaving to return home the Sunday before easter)

    Here is where you can look at the calendars to see what times the parks open and close. When they open early for WDW resort guests, they open one hour earlier than it says on there.

    I got engaged at Epcot on June 17, 2007! We're going back to celebrate my graduation in May 2009!

    Actually Epcot is not open early on St. Pats day, but it is open late that night. The formatting didn't come out as I wanted and it bunched everything together. After the date the first thing that shows up is what is available in the morning and the second thing is what is available at night. The N/A means not available.

    There are some activities at Pleasure Island for St. Patricks Day, but there are no parades for Easter.

    You will need to have your resort id and a picture id.

    We were never asked for a picture ID. The resort ID is a must, though.

    Currently Epcot is the only one checking pictures ID's. Each park is trying a different system to see what works the best. By summer they will have an electronic system that will make it easy for everyone.
