    Hi! My friends and I will be staying at Hilton Orlando Buena Vista Palace when we visit, which has the extra magic hours. We don’t have magic bands, so will we present hotel keys to get into the extra magic hours or something else? Do we each need one?

    Hi Katie!

    You and your friends are going to have a blast creating memories together at Walt Disney World Resort! I have enjoyed a couple stays with my family at the Hilton Orlando Buena Vista Palace and we enjoyed the amenities it had to offer at that time. 

    If you have already purchased your Disney theme park tickets, all you will need to do is visit the front desk of your resort to obtain a hotel-issued Extra Magic Hours voucher for each individual in your party.  Though you will not need a MagicBand to take advantage of the Extra Magic Hours benefit, you are free to purchase a MagicBand should you choose to. The MagicBands are available for purchase online at Shop Disney Merchandise, or in select Walt Disney World theme parks, resort hotel or Disney Springs retail locations.  

    Don’t forget to make your Disney dining reservations and secure your FastPass+ selections. 

    Have a magical “friend” vacation!
