Paying to Stay Late in Parks ?

My aunt was telling me that even though you are not staying on WDW property, when WDW has their EMH at night you can pay an extra price to stay at the parks. Is this true? Thanks for the info.

Not exactly. Off-site guests can't pay an extra price to visit any of the attractions during evening EMH. However, they're free to remain in the park to shop and dine. No extra payment is required.

pay extra

Hi,

We were just at Disney last week and for every ride for the extra hours we each had to show them our resort room card. I didn't hear or see of anything different.

I think she is talking about one of the hard ticket parties the MK offers. EMH is only for onsite Disney guests and the Hilton and Swan/Dolphin hotels.

I was thinking the same thing - she's thinking possibly of MVMCP & MNSSHP.

Is this true?
I'm still leaning in the direction of, "No."

Before there was EEMH that is how it worked. About once a week you could pay 12.50 a person to stay in the park and extra 3 hours. If I remember correctly they only let 5000 people buy tickets. We had a lot of fun doing this.

someone is mixing memories together... at this time, you have to be a guest of a participating resort to enjoy evening emh.

But you still had to be an onsite guest.

They were called E ticket nights. They were so much better than EMH.

Essentially it was the whole MK open for about 5000 guests which for the MK is empty. It was pretty much ride what you want as often as you want with no lines for, I believe, 3 hours.

They were called E-Ride Nights. They were a lot of fun because there was so little competition with other guests. They were only at MK in the evening though. EMH aren't quite as cool because so many more people do them, but they're free!
