    Hi! We are coming for Monday- Sat of the week before Christmas, and got three day hoppers. We are at the Dolphin. We are debating between Tues, Wed, Friday or Tues, Thurs Friday. We are tempted to do include Thurs since we qualify for the extended hour

    Hey there, hi there, Laura! You're as welcome as can be here at planDisney, and thanks for stopping by with such a great planning question.

    I couldn't be happier to see that you have a magical adventure at The Most Magical Place on Earth during the most wonderful time of the year on the horizon. With the twinkling lights, holiday decorations, and smell of gingerbread in the air, there is just something extra magical about Walt Disney World Resort during the holiday season. Of course, more magic is always better, so let's chat about Extended Evening Theme Park Hours during your stay!

    My family and I love taking advantage of Early Theme Park Entry for Disney Resort Hotel Guests and Extended Evening Theme Park Hours for more time in the magic with smaller crowds and less time waiting in line. If you and your travel party are night owls, I absolutely recommend scheduling your park days to take advantage of Extended Evening Hours. Since the exclusive experience is only available to Guests staying at a Disney Deluxe Resort or other select hotels, such as the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel, you will find that the park feels practically empty. Walking through EPCOT late at night with very few people in the park is one of my favorite Disney experiences!

    During your stay, Extended Evening Theme Park Hours are being offered at EPCOT on Monday, December 18th and Thursday, December 21st from 9:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. Due to this schedule, I recommend using one of your 3-Day Theme Park Tickets with Park Hopper on Thursday, December 21st. That way, you can make a Theme Park Reservation for any park that day and park hop over to EPCOT for Extended Evening Hours. And the best part? At the end of the night, you'll be just a hop, skip and a jump away from your Resort! 

    I hope this helps you plan your park days, Laura, and I hope you have the most magical time! Please feel free to stop by any time with any questions you may have along the way. You've got a friend in me.

    See ya real soon,
