Magic Hours - how does this work?Disneyland Paris: If you're not staying at a Disneyland hotel, how do they police "Magic Hours" once you're inside the park?
From Jane WilliamsWe're off to DLP next week, staying in a central Paris hotel and planning to go to the parks for one day.

However, I can see that DLP hotel guests will have an extra 4 hours per day as part of the "Magic Hours".
I can see how this is policed between 8-10am, but what happens after 8pm? Do they check you're a hotel guest at each ride/attraction? Or if we just hang on, would we still enjoy the "Magic Hours" without being hotel guests?

From James RaoNot sure what they do in Paris, but at WDW they check for your room "key" at every attraction. No rides for you... at least for the first 90 minutes or so. After that the ride ops start to get a little lax...

From Anthony MurphyYou either have to show your room key or they give you a wristband.

From Jane WilliamsThanks both. We arrived at the advertised time for non-hotel guests (actually earlier so we could get some rides in before the crowds built up).

The park closing time was the same for everyone.
Unimpressed with it compared with our previous visits - the place has gone downhill, although the rides were awesome...I'm posting a separate thread about the problems.
