    if we have a regular park ticket, do we have to leave when extra magic hours start?

    Hey, Alan!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I am so glad you stopped by with this question. As Li Shang from Disney’s Mulan says, “Let’s get down to business" and get you some answers.

    Extra Magic Hours are additional theme park hours available at select theme parks either in the morning or evening. These magical hours are open strictly to Guests of Walt Disney World Resort hotels with a valid theme park ticket. If you are not staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel then you will be kindly asked to exit the theme park. Cast Members will be checking admission cards and MagicBands at the entrance to all attractions to make sure only Resort Guests are on the attractions.

    I hope this information helps. Please visit us with more questions as you plan your special Disney vacation.

    Alan, enjoy making many Magical Memories at Walt Disney World Resort!
