    We are staying at a WDW resort, I was wondering if we can take advantage of the the Extended Magic hours on the day we check out?

    Hey there, Mariana. Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. 

    I'm excited to know that you will be staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel during your upcoming vacation to Walt Disney World. There are so many benefits to staying on property! Extra Magic Hours is a perk offered to those Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel. What this means is a select park is either open earlier in the morning or stays open later at night for on property Guests to enjoy. I think you'll be happy to know that as a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel Guests, even on your check out day, you are able to take advantage of that extra. Actually, all of your on property benefits expire at midnight on the day that you check out so you have that full day to use them. It's kind of like being Cinderella. If you don't have a vehicle with you to put your luggage in when you check out in the morning, you can always take all of your stuff up to the Bell Services counter and they will store it for you until you are ready to leave. This is a great service, especially if you have a later flight and it's complimentary! On my last day at Walt Disney World, I love spending it by the pool. Sometimes, I've even asked for a later check out at the resort so I can shower after swimming. It's a great way to spend the morning before going home. 

    I hope this helps, Mariana. If you have any other questions, please feel free to come back and ask. Enjoy!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
