    This question has been driving me crazy...When staying late for extra magic hours, how do they know who is staying on Disney property and who is not?

    Hi, Heather!

    When enjoying Extra Magic Hours at a Walt Disney World theme park, all guests in attendance must be registered guests at a Disney Resort.  Once the regular hours end the Magic hours start, guests must present their MagicBands to a Cast Member who will scan each band to make sure the guest is indeed staying on property.

    MagicBands will be checked when boarding attractions during the Extra Magic Hours, so make sure to have your MagicBand on and ready to be scanned to keep the line moving right along.

    Whenever you have a Disney question that is driving you crazy, stop by to the Moms Panel! We might not always have the answer, but we try our best to find the best information possible!
