Walt Disney World to use Magic Bands to provide proof for Extra Magic Hours



Beginning today, November 17, MagicBands will be used to provide proof that a guest is staying at a Walt Disney World Hotel and has morning Extra Magic Hours eligibility for that day, if choosing to attend a morning Extra Magic Hour session at a given park.  Walt Disney World Cast Members will scan the Magic Band (or rfid enabled Key to the World) before allowing guests to the Mickey Touch Points.

If you are stating at the Hilton Downtown Disney, Shades of Green or the Swan and Dolphin, you will be allowed access with a valid hotel room key.

What do you think about this change?

  1. Can u use morning magic hours on check in day? Would this entail taking your magic band to resort to check in first, then going to park?

  2. It makes sense… I remember years ago needing to get a wrist band in order to stay in the park for extra magic. But it makes me wonder how effective it will be once magic bands are rolled out to off property guests.
