    Is the magic band for pass holders valid for extra magic hours?

    Hi Patricia and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thanks so much for stopping by with a question!

    Being a Walt Disney World Resort Annual Passholder definitely has its perks, especially if you’re a Florida Resident. With so many annual pass options, there’s a pass that will suit almost any budget. Passholders can enjoy complimentary MagicBands, parking at all four theme parks, discounts on restaurants, merchandise and can attend special events throughout the year. After all, it’s always a good time to visit the Walt Disney World Resort!

    When it comes to the benefit of Extra Magic Hours, additional time at one of the four theme parks each day, this benefit is only available to Disney Resort hotel guests. Annual Passholders can absolutely take advantage of Special Offers available to them to stay at Disney Resort hotels, but unless they are guests, they would not be able to take part in Extra Magic Hours at the theme parks. 

    Patricia, I encourage you to visit the Special Offers web page before your next visit to see if any promotions might coincide with the dates of your next stay. There are different promotions each season and with value, moderate and deluxe accommodations available to you at the Walt Disney World Resort, there’s plenty of variety!

    I hope this information is helpful to you! Please feel free to drop by again with any other questions you might have! Helping you plan your next magical stay is our pleasure!
