Extra Magic Hours [Facebook Fans]

We asked our facebook community "What rides do you most recommend during Extra Magic Hours?" We got a lot of great answers and recommendations that we want to share with you.

For a lot of people it is about getting to ride the rides that normally have a long line during the day.

Maureen R. said, "Peter Pans Flight and It's a Small World."

Danielle D. said, "SOARIN, Space Mountain, PeterPan, Haunted Mansion, Wed-way People Mover, Kilimanjaro's Safari, expedition Everest,.... All the classics really, the ones where the lines are usually longest, & the ones that are enhanced by late night atmosphere... :)"

Chris J. said, "Splash mountain is cool at night also because there is no line."

Lesa T. said, "We always do the rides that are so crowded during the day with children... Peter Pan, Winnie the Pooh, Snow White, etc."

Tammy K. said, "Big Thunder, Peter Pan, and Soarin - it always seems like the lines are really long for these ride all day, we usually wait until magic hours to get to them. I also love Splash Mountain - we usually walk right on during magic hours, and if they are evening magic hours, there are some really cool views of the castle from the ride.."

Gale M. said, "tower of terror,aerosmith space mountain and splash mountain."

Janet G. said, "expedition everest and toy story mania."

And some people like to ride certain rides during Extra Magic Hours for different reasons.

Adriana L. shared "the Jungle Cruise becomes hilarious at 2am! LOL."

Amanda M. said, "Thunder Mountain Railroad- so awesome to ride at night, especially during fireworks!"

My favorite rides to get in during Extra Magic Hours are Expedition Everest and Thunder Mountain. Both of these rides are amazing and at night they are that much better! And it doesn't hurt that you walk right on. If I make it up for Extra Magic Hours in the morning I usually try to hit Toy Story or Buzz Lightyear first in order to avoid the long lines that come later in the day with these two.

Living in Jacksonville, I only go on 1 day trips that last about 7-8 hours on average since I go often.

I've stayed at a resort last year and experienced Extra Magic Hours at Hollywood Studios. Rock "n" Roller Coaster and Tower of Terror were basically walk ons. I had the "pleasure" of standing in Journey to Narnia and when it was over, scratched my head as I thought it was something different (probably the only attraction I've never heard about before getting on, thought it was a simulator ride, bad decision! lol), and did Toy Story Mania, which still had a long wait, about 50 minutes.

The trick with Toy Story Mania is to do it the moment the park opens otherwise you wait no matter what ;)
