    I am getting 8 day tickets but staying off site for the first three nights then in Disney resorts the next 4 nights. How will that work with fast passes and magic hours, etc?

    Hi Kendra!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. There are some amazing benefits to staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel and I'm glad you'll be able to take advantage of these during part of your stay!

    For booking FastPass+ Reservations, for the 4 days you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you'll be able to book your reservations 60 days prior to arrival for that check in date. For the 3 days you are staying off property, you'll be able to book FastPass+ 30 days prior to arrival for those dates. The system goes based off the check in date. 

    For Extra Magic Hours, Cast Members will scan MagicBands to ensure that Guests are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel. Since your MagicBand will not reflect that you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel for the first 3 days, you will unfortunately not be able to enjoy Extra Magic Hours. You will be eligible as soon as you check-in to your Walt Disney World Resort hotel though! So if you wake up early, arrive at your second destination and check in, you'd be able to take advantage of Extra Magic Hours right away, even though your room will likely not be ready.

    Please let us know if you have any other questions!

My name is Lindsey and I'm a wife, mommy, engineer and self-proclaimed "Disnerd!" I've always loved Disney and the joy it brings to so many people. I've been to Disney more times than I can count, but I found an even greater passion for all things Disney after discovering runDisney events. There is no better motivation to train for a race than a trip to the most magical place on earth! Learn More About Lindsey
