The Extra Magic Hours Police!?

Hi, how do Disney enforce the extra magic hours for Disney hotel guests?What's stopping non Disney residents remaining in the park after the official closing time?Do you get different park tickets or something?

You need to show your Key To The World Card to ride any ride, get in to any Show. You may also be asked to show it at random by any Cast Member. Nothing to stop non guests from roaming around, shopping etc but they will not be allowed to do much else

For Morning extra magic hours, you need a Key to the World card to get in the Park

EMH are also available to Hilton DTD guests but its the same deal,you just show your hotel key to get in during the morning EMH and need it to ride any rides during the evening EMH. When there is a special event like the Christmas party,you need a wristband to remain in the park

Swan and Dolphin hotels also get EMH, and you have to show your room key to either enter a park, or ride any ride and see any show.

You can also add Shades of Green to the list.

I wonder if there is a black market for room keys to get the EMH?
