    I am traveling to Orlando in April for work, but staying @ a Marriott. If you have a Gold Annual Pass, am I able to take advantage of Magic Hours? Or only if I am staying onsite @ a Disney approved resort? Thank you!

    Hi Jennifer,
    So glad you could join us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel! How lucky are you to have work bring you to Orlando? What a fun place to go for a business trip!

    Extra Magic Hours are a special treat offered only to guests staying in Walt Disney World Resort hotels.  However, you may find that rates are comparable to other hotels during the time you plan on staying if there are passholder discounts being offered during that time.

    Since you may not qualify for Extra Magic Hours, have you considered one of the Disney After Hours parties? It's an amazing way to feel like you have one of the four theme parks all to yourself for a few hours at night. Short lines, delicious treats and a party like only Mickey could plan!

    Jennifer, I hope you have a magical visit!

    Best Wishes,
    Amy S.
