    Hi there, we are DVC members and staying onsite this September. We get extra magic hours but can we take friends with us that are not staying on site into the parks early? Thanks for your help Eddie

    Hi Eddie!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I'm so glad that you stopped by with a question for us, and I'm always happy to help a fellow Disney Vacation Club Member. I know you're probably getting excited about your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation, and it will be here before you know it. So I hope you're ready to have LOTS of fun!

    I'm sure you're looking forward to taking advantage of all of the perks and benefits that your Membership has to offer. Plus as a Disney Resort Hotel Guest, you get the added benefit of things like Disney Transportation and Extra Magic Hours. Since your friends are not staying in a Disney Resort Hotel, they won't be able to attend Extra Magic Hours with you. Valid hotel ID is required to attend, and Cast Members in the park do check MagicBands. So if you want to spend that extra time together, you might want to tell them about all of the great reasons to stay at a Disney Resort Hotel!

    Please don't hesitate to let us know if you have any other questions. We're always here if you need us. Enjoy your vacation and make lots of magical memories!
