How to Register for Moonlight Magic

Registration is required, and guests with a resort reservation on the date of the event will have access to an early registration period. We’ll update with reservation dates as soon as we have information.

Guests with eligible resort reservations may receive a link in their email, and can also find a link on the event page. When registration opens, members will access the link to enter a virtual waiting room. When it is their turn, each member may register themselves and up to 4 guests, for a total party size of 5, or up to the number of guests on their resort reservation. Children up to three years of age don’t need to register. In the past, the waiting room has filled quickly, so if you’re tapping in on registration day it’s best to be there right on time.

The member who registers must be in attendance at the party, so if you have multiple members in your family plan accordingly. Also, if you are registering early with a resort reservation, the resort reservation must be made by the person listed as Owner on the membership. (Need help getting a resort reservation? The agents at TouringPlans Travel can set you up.)

Only one event per park per year is available for each membership. So you can attend a Moonlight Magic event at EPCOT and also one at Hollywood Studios. But you can’t attend both Moonlight Magic dates at Animal Kingdom in 2024. And only members who are eligible for Membership Extras can register. Not sure if you qualify? You’ll need to set up MagicMobile to view your digital DVC Membership card; it must say DVC-Y on the back.

Will you be attending one of the 2024 events? Have you been to one in the past? Let us know in the comments!
