    We are staying at the Hilton Orlando Buena Vista Palace, and we don't plan to get Magic Bands. How do we use Extra Magic Hours? Will the hotel give us some sort of card to prove we are staying at a Disney Springs resort and therefore have access EMH?

    Hi Jing!

    Don’t you just love the idea of Extra Magic Hours? I feel like one can plan their entire vacation around those times and still have time to spare in their day to enjoy a wonderful meal at one of the many restaurants or even do some shopping at Disney Springs.

    Because Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista is an official Walt Disney World hotel, guests of the hotel can take advantage of those Extra Magic Hours. Once you check into your hotel, you will be provided with Extra Magic Hours vouchers that you will be able to use to gain entry into the theme parks. Should you decide to change your mind about the purchase of the Magic Bands, you can purchase them (before you leave) online in a variety of colors and styles to fit any individual and budget.

    Please let us know if you need additional assistance prior to your arrival. 

    Have a magical vacation!
