    Hello, we are traveling to disney in august and staying at the dolphin which I booked through another company. Do i need to purchase my tickets at the resort for EM hours, or can I advance purchase them (band) online and still get the EM hours? Thanks

    Hi Kasim and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Extra Magic Hours are a special benefit for Guests of Walt Disney World Resort hotels, Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin hotels and Shades of Green® Resort.

    In order to be able to take advantage of Extra Magic Hours, a valid park ticket and Resort I.D. is required. (Guests without the Park Hopper® option can only spend the day at the same park where they’d like to enjoy the Extra Magic Hours benefit.)

    You are however able to purchase your Theme Park Tickets from wherever you like. You do not need to purchase them from your hotel once you arrive in order to be able to benefit from Extra Magic Hours.

    Wishing you a magical trip filled with memories which will last a lifetime!
