    Hey, I was wondering about the Extra Magic Hours. I have read that you need to get a wristband at select locations within the theme parks and would like to know the locations in each theme park if possible Also, does this cause more crowds in parks?

    Hi Jennifer!  You have heard correctly, you will need to get a wristband to stay in the park for EMHs.  Although I am not sure of every location where they will be stationed, there will be cast members located throughout the park passing out wristbands.  They are usually very easy to spot, but if you can't find one, just ask any cast member and I am sure they can direct you to the closest station.  For instance at MK I know there is usually a cast member close to the castle passing out the wristbands.  And remember to stay for EMH you must be staying at a WDW property and you will need to show your key to the kingdom (room key card) for each person in your party.  To be honest, I think the parks seen more crowded for morning extra hours rather than the late night ones.  I have found that with the night time EMH, a lot of people with little ones have gone in and sometimes it has seemed as if we had the park to ourselves.  Thanks for coming to the Mom's Panel, and I hope you have a magical vacation.
