    How does extra magic hours work for when are after the park closes? Do you have to go out then come back in?

    Hi, Cynthia!
    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Extra Magic Hours are one of my favorite perks to staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel. You can enjoy extra hours before parks open and after parks close to anyone who is not staying at a hotel on the Disney property. The Cast Members check by scanning Resort Guests'  MagicBands as they enter each attraction. There are also Cast Members who check bands as you enter different areas of the park.

    I hope that helps clarify your questions about Extra Magic Hours! Let me know if I can assist you with any other questions.

I’m a mom, wife and goldendoodle dog owner who is not afraid to ride a fast roller coaster again and again. I love to travel - which is good since I telework with a job in Washington, DC. I’ve visited Disneyland and Walt Disney World multiple times and it’s fed into my belief that you’re never too old to have fun. I run when I can and recently earned my runDisney Coast to Coast medal! I also love photography and founded an online special needs community. Learn More About Jen
