    Can we take advantage of the extra magic hours in the morning if we haven't checked in to our resort yet? I did online check in if that helps. We are planning on getting up early and driving to MK to have fun before we go to the Boardwalk to check in.

    Hi Courtney,

    When you are at the park for Extra Magic Hours, the cast members will be asking to see a Key to the World card. This shows that you are a guest staying at a Walt Disney World Resort.

    Now with the new Magic Bands, the cast members would know that you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort. This takes the place of the Key to the World card.

    This is why you have to go to your resort to check in first. This will then allow you to head to a park for the day. You can head to your resort at any time. While your room may not be ready, your other items will be for you to use.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
