A few months ago, I shared the news about Walt Disney World's newest perk, Early Park Admission. Disney has released more details about that perk, and I'm here to break it all down for you.
Just in time for the 50th celebration, we finally have a start date for Disney's Early Park Admission! Beginning October 1st, Disney Resort hotel guests and guests of other select hotels, will have the first chance to enjoy select attractions at EVERY theme park, EVERY day. (I've explained why this is a way better perk than Extra Magic Hours here.)
One huge announcement is that guests staying at a Deluxe or Deluxe Villa Disney Resort hotel will also be able to enjoy EXTENDED evening hours on select nights in select theme parks. (Think of this as the old Extra Magic Hours.) Extended evening hours will begin in early October.
For both of these options, select attractions, merchandise and food and beverage locations will be available. Please note that guests will need a valid ticket or pass and a theme park reservation for the same park on the same day to experience early theme park entry and, for select guests, extended evening hours. Or, guests may visit with a ticket or Annual Pass with the Park Hopper option as long as they entered their first park where they made their reservation earlier in the day.
If you're interested in booking a room at a Deluxe or Deluxe Villa Resort, contact me as soon as possible. This announcement will make these rooms very popular, so booking as far in advance as possible is highly recommended. My 2021 Resort Recommendations are listed here.
