    How do extra magic hours work now that magic bands are available to all guests? How do they determine if you are staying on property?

    Hi Jennifer!

    This is a fantastic question. During Extra Magic Hours, Cast Members are stationed around the parks, as well as at the entrance of attractions and shopping locations, to scan guest's MagicBands. Their handheld scanners will allow Cast Members to verify a park guest is staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel and is eligible to participate in Extra Magic Hours. 

    I hope this helps, Jennifer. Please come back and see us again if you have any other questions.

    Have a magical day,
