    I'm trying to understand Extra Magic Hours... EMH are scheduled for Hollywood Studios during my stay. If I'm staying at a WDW Resort and have a one-day, one-park ticket for Magic Kingdom, can I still take advantage of the EMH or do I need a Park Hopper?

    Hi Barbara! Extra Magic Hours are a wonderful perk for guests staying at the Walt Disney World resort hotels. Each day one of the parks opens one hour early or stays open three hours later just for Disney resort guests. Guests staying outside of Disney World aren't allowed to enter the park or ride the attractions during Extra Magic Hours, which gives Disney resort guests additional, less-crowded park time. 

    Even though Extra Magic Hours are a benefit for Disney resort guests, you still must have a valid park admission. Resort guests can't take advantage of Extra Magic Hours without a park ticket. As to your question, if you have a one-day one-park ticket for the Magic Kingdom, you will not be allowed to visit the Extra Magic Hours at Hollywood Studios because you will not be able to enter the Studios without a ticket. If you had a park-hopper ticket or if you had a one-day ticket for the Studios, then as a Disney Resort guest you could visit during the Extra Magic Hours.

    I hope I've cleared things up. Please come visit us again at the Moms Panel if you have more questions! We're happy to help!
