    How does Magic Hours work? Can I get inside the park even if I am not staying on Disney property? I heard you could but can't ride anything til the regular park hours.

    Hi Marilyn, thanks for your question.
    Extra Magic Hours are a great benefit for Guests staying at Disney Resort Hotels, Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotels and Shades of Green Resort. It gives Disney Guests the opportunity to enjoy extra time in the theme parks before they open or after they close.
    If you are visiting only for the day or you are staying off property, you can not enter the parks during these special hours. You will have to follow the regular operating park hours.
    Let us know if you have further questions. 
    Have a magical day!

I am totally a Disney maniac! Since childhood, I have been a big fan of all things Disney, especially the theme parks. I have never visited any other place that gives me the same feeling that I get at the Walt Disney World Resort. You can become a child again there! With so much to explore, I would love to help you plan your next Walt Disney World vacation and discover all the fantasy and magic this special place has to offer. Learn More About Gina
