Guests staying in Disney accommodation have long enjoyed privileged hours inside the theme parks.  Getting access either a little earlier or later gives your family a great opportunity to hit some of the big attractions before the lines reach peak levels.

As of this week, as Disney extend their roll out of the MyMagic+ system, the Extra Magic Hours access into the parks will be made possible by Magicbands.

Some exceptions will exist, such as the Swan & Dolphin hotels, located on Disney property, but operated by third party businesses.  In such cases, the normal EMH ID cards still serve the purpose.  Any current Key to the World cards will also allow access during the change over to MyMagic+
