    I am coming for my first time ever to WDW and I'm staying at POP Century. My question is about magical hours. Is there certain things that I have to do to use them such as sign up or something?

    Hey, Joseph!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We love Disney’s Pop Century Resort and it was our first "home" away from home. The Hippy Dippy pool is a "far out" place to catch some ray as you "chill out."

    Extra Magic Hours are "automagically" included for Guests of Walt Disney World Resort hotels and unavailable to anyone else. Each day a different theme park will be open early or close late just for these Guests. Cast Members will be checking for a Valid park ticket and Resort I.D. to make sure the Guest is staying on property. This could be on an Admission Card or MagicBand so make sure everything is linked in My Disney Experience. Enjoy the extra time in the theme parks riding attractions and visiting Disney Characters.

    Disney Dad Tip: Guests staying on-property may begin making FastPass+ reservations 60 days prior to their arrival date. Guests staying off property may begin reserving 30 days before their arrival date. Yet, another benefit to being a Guest of a Walt Disney World Resort hotel.

    Joseph, enjoy making many Magical Memories!
