    how do ai find out the days parks have early entry for resort guests? we plan to be in Disney 3/20-21 and would like to make park reservations that incorporates extended hours for resort guests


    Thanks for asking your question to planDisney!

    There are so many great perks to staying at a Disney Resort Collection Hotel, but for my family the early park entry might be their favorite! My girls love getting into the park 30 minutes ahead of time, not just to hop on a ride before the larger crowds enter, but also just to enjoy the theme and ambiance of each of these amazing adventures.

    You can confirm theme park hours, including any early or late entry programs, via the park hours page on the website. You can navigate to it by hovering over the "Parks & Tickets" menu item on the website, and from the pop-up menu you can click on "More Hours". Simply select your date, and you will see hours for all four parks, as well as other venues, like the water parks.

    BONUS TIP #1
    The opening and closing hours are conveniently displayed, as well as the times of some major parade and firework events. But an often-overlooked feature on that page is a listing of any venues that are scheduled to be closed for refurbishment. Make sure you take note of these, so that you can plan out your day accordingly.

    BONUS TIP #2
    I prefer to use the 5-day view of the calendar, as it helps me plan out multiple days at once. It can also help me see if I should consider switching what parks to visit on what days, due to special events and other operating schedules.

    Please feel free to write me back directly if you have any follow-up questions.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
