    Can we still attend the extended evening hours on the day we check out of a deluxe hotel even if we do not have a disney hotel reservation for that evening?

    Hiya Donald!

    Welcome to planDisney, and thanks for bringing your excellent question our way. 

    You’re going to love your stay at a Disney Resort hotel! Choosing the perfect resort for my family is vital to my trip. To me, Disney Resort hotels are part of the magic and adventure and not at all an afterthought. You’ll find each Disney Resort hotel full of its unique charm; it’s so much fun to explore! 

    Donald, as you know, Extended Evening Theme Park Hours are offered to registered Guests staying at a Disney Deluxe Resort, Disney Deluxe Villa Resort, or other select hotels on select nights. I’m happy to tell you that on the day of checkout, you are still considered a Guest of your resort until midnight. This means you are welcome to take advantage of the Extended Evening Theme Park Hours during the evening you’ve checked out.

    Please note that currently, Guests using this benefit will need valid admission and a theme park reservation for the same park on the same day to experience extended evening hours, or Guests may experience extended evening hours if they have a ticket or annual pass with the Park Hopper option and first enter the park where they made their reservation.

    My family recently enjoyed this extra perk at EPCOT and Magic Kingdom Park; we are still raving about our fun. Lower crowds make it easier to experience attractions without a longer wait time. You also get an extra opportunity to join the Virtual Queue for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind if your evening hours are at EPCOT or for TRON Lightcycle / Run presented by Enterprise if your evening hours are offered at Magic Kingdom Park! Yippie!

    Wishing you an enchanting visit, Donald!
