    We would like to attend the parks during the extended hours. Are we able to stay for the extended hours even if we are not staying on site? Do we need to purchase the Park Hopper ticket option to do this?

    Extra Magic Hours are a perk that is only available for guests staying at the WDW resort hotels.

    If you are staying at a Disney resort, you may or may not need a Park Hopper ticket to enjoy EMH, depending your touring style. If you visiting the Extra Magic park during the day and during the extended time (one park per day), you do not need a Park Hopper. However, if you visit a non-EMH park and then go to a different park's Extra Magic time, then you will need a Park Hopper.

    Good luck with your planning!
