    Extended hours in parks are only a benefit for guests in Disney hotels or everybody can enjoy this plan?

    Hi, Erika!  Extra Magic Hours are a benefit extended only to guests staying at a Walt Disney World resort hotel.  Resort guests can usually enjoy an extra hour each morning at one of the four theme parks, and up to an extra three hours each night at another of the theme parks.  It's a great way to make the most of your theme park time, and sometimes, you can find shorter lines for some of the more popular attractions.

    In order to take advantage of Extra Magic Hours in the morning, a resort guest must enter by showing their Key to the World card (their resort room key) at the turnstile.  If a resort guest wishes to stay for evening extra magic hours, they will have to again present their Key to the World card.  One card is needed for each member of the party.

    I hope that helps with your planning!  Have a fabulous vacation!
