    When speaking of extra magic hours, do you have to buy your tickets from Disney directly or can you buy from a 3rd party vendor (and would be staying on-site)?

    Hi Danielle,

    Welcome to the Moms Panel!  Extra Magic Hours is one of my favorite perks of staying at one of the Walt Disney World Resorts.  Each member of your party that is listed on your resort reservation will be issued a Key to the World Card, and this will be your "key" to obtaining access to the Extra Magic Hours.  Valid theme park admission is required, but it does not have to be purchased directly from Disney.

    If you purchased from a third party (and therefore have a separate ticket instead having your tickets encoded on your room key), simply keep your Key to the World Card with you at all times as proof of your resort guest status.

    Hope this helps, have a wonderful time!
