    We're staying at the Dolphin hotel Tuesday - Friday and are checking out of the Dolphin/into the Contemporary on Friday. Magic Kingdom has Extra Magic Hours on Friday. Will we be able to enjoy the Extra Magic Hours on Friday?

    Hi Julia,

    It sounds like you have a treat coming up, with stays at two fantastic Resorts during your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation. The Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel is located in a picture-perfect location on Crescent Lake, nestled between Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot, each of which can be reached by a short walk or water taxi. It is the perfect place to stay when exploring these two Theme Parks, and for indulging in some of the great shops and galleries, restaurants, bars and lounges, and eateries along Disney's BoardWalk.

    Disney's Contemporary Resort also boasts an enviable position as one of the three monorail Resorts surrounding Magic Kingdom. In fact, along with its sister Resort, Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort, have the distinction of being the only Resorts from which it is possible to walk to Magic Kingdom. It just doesn't get any better than that!

    Julia, you will be happy to know that as a guest of Disney's Contemporary Resort, you will indeed be able to take advantage of Extra Magic Hours from the day of check-in until the day of check-out inclusive. As you will be checking into the Resort the day you intend to take advantage of Extra Magic Hours, I recommend that you check into the Resort before heading over to Magic Kingdom that morning. Otherwise, you will want to ensure that you have completed Online Resort Check-In and have your MagicBands with you.

    Wishing you a MAGICAL upcoming Disney vacation!
