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?
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?
Yes you can. Just check in at your resort, then head over
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.
I would guess they are encoded with your current dates of stay at a Disney resort, but I would bet there are still tons of errors.
makes sense to me
It seems like this would be a faster way of confirming….if technology cooperates. :)
sounds reasonable… how did they prove it before?
They just asked you to show valid hotel key
