    We are staying at CSR and plan on taking advantage of extra hours. What is the check in procedure? Do we need to get wrist bands or does it show on our magic bands that we are able to use the extra hours? Thank you .

    Hi Samuel,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I bet everyone in your household is getting excited about your upcoming trip to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    It sounds like you are asking about Extra Magic Hours at the theme parks. Your access to Extra Magic Hours will be linked through your MagicBands as a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel guest, so you only need to use those to get access to the theme parks. Just double-check My Disney Experience to be sure your vacation package (with resort hotel and theme park tickets) is linked to your My Disney Experience Account. Also, be sure that all members of your party are connected through your My Family & Friends List in My Disney Experience. Before you go, double-check the park hours to make sure they have not changed since you made your initial plans.

    Samuel, I trust that you have made Fast Pass+ selections and advanced dining reservations. On our last trip, we also took advantage of two dining packages - the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade Dining Package with Tony's Town Square Restaurant and the Rivers of Light Dining Package with Tusker House Restaurant. Both gave us access to great viewing locations for the parade and nighttime show!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
