    Do you have to pay extra for the magic hours at the parks if you are staying on site (staying the French Quarter) and got day passes for 5 days as well as a dining plan????

    Hi, Cindy!

    There are many perks of staying a Disney resort: wonderful transportation options, Disney's Magical Express, package delivery to your resort, complimentary MagicBands, and my favorite....Extra Magic Hours!

    On select days, one of the Disney theme parks may open an hour early or stay open past regular hours. Only guests staying at a Disney resort may be in the parks during Extra Magic Hours, and you must have your MagicBand scanned for resort identification purposes. This extra magical time is complimentary.

    To find out which parks will have Extra Magic Hours, check the Park Hours online or check your My Disney Experience mobile app on your smart phone. You can also pick up a Times Guide anywhere on property that will detail the parks' hours.

    Enjoy your magical hours in Walt Disney World!
