    If you’re an on site guest w/ a magicband wanting to go to EMH at MK where should you stand to be let into the lands early? Is there a special umbrella with a CM to be let into a land?

    Hi Emarie,
    Thank you for bringing us your question about Extra Magic Hours! Extra Magic Hours is my favorite benefit of staying in a Disney Resort Hotel, it allows us to maximize our time by riding our favorite attractions (sometimes multiple times) at the start of the day! 
    Guests staying on site are usually asked to validate they are entitled to the benefit by having their MagicBands scanned at the entrance. At least, the last time I was there for Extra Magic Hours this past March, there was no need to verify a guest was staying on site multiple times but once.
    I'm so excited to hear you will get to ride everyone's favorite rides such as Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Space Mountain, and Peter Pan's Flight at the start of your day! Who wouldn't want to start their day with this much fun? 
    Remember to always check the printed Times Guide, available at every Disney Resort hotel Front Desk OR the Parks calendar to see where and when the Extra Magic Hours benefit is offered. Also, be sure to have the My Disney Experience app downloaded on your mobile device to learn about any unplanned attraction closures or long-term refurbishments. And, remember that from September 1 to November 2, this year, Guests staying at Disney Resort hotels will have more opportunities to take advantage of the Extra Magic Hours benefit with extra, Extra Magic Hours!, which allow you to enjoy EVEN more time at a select theme park—before the park’s regular operating hours—to enjoy select attractions and experiences (YES, Star Wars Galaxy's Edge at Disney's Hollywood Studios is included in this benefit-subject to capacity).
    I hope these ideas are helpful, Emarie. Thank you for stopping by and please come back with more questions about your vacation!
    See ya real soon!

Meet the Panelist: Desiree, Peru

Hi! I'm Desiree from Lima, Peru. My family will never ever tire of visiting the Most Magical Place on Earth, even if means traveling almost 3,000 miles to do so! My husband and I love to watch the fireworks with our kids, but the best magic happens when the grandparents come along and we all feel the same age in front of Cinderella Castle! I love giving tips about different types of resorts and traveling with multigenerational groups.
