January 2013 Extra Magic Hours for Walt Disney World

When the January 2013 Disney World Park Operating Hours were first posted last month, we were unable to list any Extra Magic Hours. That is because Disney chose to not release them at the same time they released the general hours.

Speculation at the time was that they were going to adjust the Extra Magic Hours (EMH) in some fashion. That speculation turned out to be correct as Disney later indicated that evening Extra Magic Hours would be cut by one hour.

In the years leading up to this change, evening EMH was always listed at up to three hours past park closing. This, in reality, meant that the theme parks participating in evening EMH were actually open those extra three hours for qualified guests.

Qualifying guests are typically those guests who stay at one of the many resorts of Walt Disney World. While verification procedures have also changed in recent years, guests participating in EMH have been required to show a valid resort ID to enter rides and attractions during the hours of EMH.

While the January 2013 Park Hours calendar has been updated here on All Things Mouse, many may just be interested in the Extra Magic Hours for the month. They are shown below.
