    I am staying at a Disney Springs area resort (Best Western) and will have an annual pass. I am arriving late on a night with EMH. Can I enjoy evening EMH before checking into my hotel? At Dolphin, I needed hotel key, what do I need at the BW?

    Hi Jim,

    Thanks for visiting Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.

    It's great to hear you'll be taking advantage of the Extra Magic Hours offered with your stay at the Best Western Lake Buena Vista.  I think the important question is — what will you need to take advantage of the Extra Magic Hours? After reaching out to Walt Disney World Guest Services, I learned that each of the hotels designated as Official Disney World Hotels has a different procedure for Extra Magic Hours, so I gave a call to the Best Western Lake Buena Vista for you directly. When you check-in to the hotel, you'll receive a voucher for Extra Magic Hours, and that is the voucher you use for the required Resort ID when entering Extra Magic Hours. While check-in time is 3:00 p.m., you can check-in any time of the day to pick up your voucher before heading over to the theme parks to enjoy the Extra Magic Hours.

    Jim, here's wishing you a great stay and a great Walt Disney World vacation.

    Enjoy your Disney!

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
