    Hi, I'm staying off-site and going to the Magic Kingdom on a day they have Extra Magic Hours from 7-8am. Will I be able to enter the park at 7am or will they make me wait until 8am? I understand that I can't ride amusements until 8am, but can I get

    Hi Jenna!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    To enter a park that has morning Extra Magic Hours, you must be staying in a Walt Disney World Resort. They will scan your Magic Band or ask for your resort room key to allow entry at the early time.  

    Typically, if the Extra Magic Hours are in the evening, guests staying off-property are allowed to stay to shop, eat and walk around, but not to ride attractions, see shows, etc.   Generally, a Cast Member will ask to see your proof of staying on property to do any of those things.  

    So, you will be able to enter the park at 8:00 a.m. on they day you mentioned.  

    I hope this helps!  Please let me know if you have any other questions.
