    I am staying at a Disney Resort, and wondering if after hours magic is included in the perks like extra hours is? Or would I have to buy a completely separate ticket/wristband to go to after hours magic?

    Hi, Bailey!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    There are so many great benefits that you will be able to take advantage of by staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel during your upcoming vacation.  As a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel guest, you will have early access to FastPass+ planning and receive complimentary MagicBands.  You will also have the option to purchase a Disney Dining Plan.  Staying right in the middle of the magic also gives you access to many convenient transportation options.  Walt Disney World Resort Hotel guests also have access to Extra Magic Hours.

    Extra Magic Hours are offered at one of the Walt Disney World theme parks each day either before or after normal operating hours.  During Extra Magic Hours, Walt Disney World Resort Hotel guests may enter the park and experience select attractions with lighter crowds.  Be sure to check the park hours in your My Disney Experience mobile app to view the schedule for Extra Magic Hours.

    Disney After Hours is different from Extra Magic Hours.  Disney After Hours is a separately ticketed event.  If you wish to attend a Disney After Hours event, you will need to purchase a special event ticket.  A very limited number of tickets are sold for each Disney After Hours event, so you will be able to experience attractions with little to no wait time.  Select snacks and beverages are also included in the price of your Disney After Hours ticket.  Attending a Disney After Hours event is a great way to experience more magic in less time.
