    Hello! I have recently booked a two night stay at one of the Walt Disney Resort Hotels outside of this website. Do I still get the access to the Extra Magic Hours even though I didn't book through Disney itself for the hotel?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Shannon!

    I am very excited to hEAR that you will be staying at a Disney Resort hotel during your upcoming visit! You will find yourself immersed in pixie dust 24/7! Even if you booked your Disney Resort hotel stay through a third party, you will be able to enjoy all benefits available for Guests, including access to Extra Magic Hours
