    We are going to Disney through the 22nd of November. We are planning on going to magic kingdom to end our day with magic hours from 10pm to 2am. After midnight its the 23rd, does that mean we have to leave the park or are the magic bands still valid?

    Hi there, Evelyn!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Visiting the Magic Kingdom at night during the holiday season is probably my most favorite experience of the entire yEAR at the Walt Disney World Resort! I could frolic down Main Street, U.S.A. and gaze at Cinderella Castle with its twinkling lights for hours. It never gets old! I'm excited to hEAR you'll be able to end your magical stay with some bonus time during Extra Magic Hours! I'm certain your last hours of vacation will be filled with loads of pixie dust, Evelyn!

    Since you'll be taking advantage of nighttime Extra Magic Hours as a Guest at one of the Walt Disney World Resort hotels, your valid theme park admission from November 22 is all you need to experience this added time in Magic Kingdom. Your MagicBands should work for you since you'll be in the park when the Extra Magic Hours begin, but if you are checking out from your Resort hotel on November 22, you will not be able to make purchases after midnight using your band. You'll want to make sure to have some cash or a credit card for any last minute buys. 

    Evelyn, thank you so much for stopping by and enjoy every minute of your visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth!
