    If we go to the park on our hotel check out day, will we be able to take advantage of Extra Magic Hours that day? Will our Magic Bands be activated all day?

    Hi Elizabeth,

    I hope you're having fun dreaming about all of the magic you'll experience during your Walt Disney World Resort vacation next spring! With so many new experiences coming soon like Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, Disney Skyliner, Epcot Forever, and Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway, PLUS the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival going on during your visit, you're going to have a BLAST!

    I'm happy to let you know that you'll be considered a Guest of your Disney Resort hotel for the entire length of your stay including your check-in and check-out days. You'll not only be able to enjoy all of the wonderful amenities around your Disney Resort hotel, but yes, you'll also be able to take advantage of any Extra Magic Hours, too. I hope you soak up every ounce of magic and fun before it's time to head back home!

    As far as your MagicBands go, no data is actually stored on them, rather they simply serve as an access point for all of the information stored in your My Disney Experience account. Please feel free to continue to use them to enter the theme parks, hop in FastPass+ queues, and link Disney PhotoPass photos throughout your entire trip. If you have a credit card on file, you'll even be able to continue to make charges with your MagicBands through midnight after you've checked out. Oh, and did you know that MagicBands are reusable? They'll work as long as their batteries still work, which should be several years, so definitely feel free to hang on to them for any future Disney adventures!

    Thanks so much for bringing us your great question, Elizabeth, and please feel free to come see us again if we can help with anything else. I hope that you have a truly magical vacation next spring!
