[QUOTE=mickeysgirlz;975538]We’ve gone the last 5 years, and last year was the first year I noticed this change.
The 5 hubs were blocked off with two CMs holding a rope. You had to show them your wristband to get by. They were allowing NON party guest to still shop on Main Street.
We go to the park at 4pm on the day of the event, so we swipe the cards and go through the turnstile and are given a wristband at that time. But there are lines near each of the hubs and they will scan your cards there and give a wristband.
HONESTLY, I don’t like the showing of the room key for extra magic hours, I know it saves money/environment, etc. but it’s a pain to kept your key out all night.[/QUOTE]
plus the wristband makes a nice little momento after you get home…
