Hospital Visiting Hours

Anyone else delivering in a hospital with enforced visiting hours? Mine is really strict, only 7 hours a day. I'm perfectly fine with it, I understand the need for patients to get their rest and for the staff to be able to better care for their patients. If it was up to me I wouldn't have any visitors until I get home, but my family is being extremely difficult. They feel the visiting hours are ridiculous and have even gone so far to say that they're going to make the hospital staff let them in no matter what. I don't want my family being the ones to cause a scene at a time that's supposed to be about our son, but I wouldn't put it past them. Any recommendations for dealing with family members like this?

At my hospital the father can be there from 10am-10pm but everyone else can only come 3pm-4pm or 7pm-8pm some of my family are freaking out worrying that they won't get to see baby but I've told them that our parents the babies grandparents will be coming first and if we have time then others can come!
