    I bought season passes today, and can't find if we are eligible to use magic hours. Ppl say only if I'm staying at a hotel, but I came through in May; I entered the park at 6pm, and stayed until 12am. I had no hotel key/band. what is deal, please?

    Hello and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Glad to read that you purchased your Walt Disney World season pass.  Make sure to take advantage of all the perks that a season pass comes with.  I personally enjoy the discounts for merchandise.

    Guest who are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort are able to enjoy Extra Magic Hours.  Although Cast Members may not necessarily ask you to exit the park, you will not be able to enjoy the attractions.  Upon entering an attraction, Cast Members will ask to scan your MagicBand in order to identify if you are a resort guest or not. 

    Diane's Tip of the Day:  If you need to fill-up on some extra time, I highly recommend stopping by Disney Springs for some unique dining and shopping experiences. This place is a great way to wind down after a day at the parks.

    Have a MAGICAL day and "SEE YOU REAL SOON!"
