    Extra Magic Hours Question?

    Hello! I had a quick question about EMH at WDW. My family and I stayed on-property at WDW recently and I saved my hotel keys. Theoretically, if I go again can I use the old keys during EMH to gain access to rides/attractions. Do they actually check the validity of the room keys at the parks? Thanks!

    good point... I don't know. I don't see them checking the validity of room keys. I suppose you could get away with it. I thought they would collect your room keys at the end of the trip but I guess not.

    I personally wouldn't risk it since the dates of your old stays are printed right on the room keys. But hey if you want to break the rules, be my guest. Just don't be surprised if you get caught.

    since the dates are printed right there it is a possibility for them to look at it and catch you. Ya I wouldn't want to get caught... especially not next to my wife. *Yeow* she wouldn't let me try anyhow :-P lol.

    We were at MK for EMH last Friday and the rides that we went on wanted to see the keys but as soon as I pulled them out they let us go by. Not one of the people actually made an attempt to read the card.

    You could probably get away with it. However, do they ever change the key designs / colors?

    I do remember being behind someone in line who had an 'oops that's the card from our last trip' moment after a CM questioned him about the dates on it.

    So it can happen, even if it's not likely.

    And I don't believe they've changed them in the last 3-5 years; they've been light blue with Tinkerbell for a while now, unless they've changed very recently?

    They have changed the cards, but I don't think they changed them in a while. And in my experience no one every ever reads the card. They did before when you were required to have bracelets. they should go back to the bracelets. I liked it better.

    I think it will depend on the CM allowing you into the attraction. I've had some read the room key, others demand a key from every member of my party and others just waving people in.
