    If I didn’t book my tickets and room at the same time, but am staying at a Disney hotel, can I still take advantage of staying on property perks (early hoursx extra magic hours etc)?

    Hi Lauren!  Welcome to planDisney.

    How exciting that your Walt Disney World Resort vacation begins next week!  It is a lovely time of year to visit.  You'll be able to enjoy the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival before it ends on November 19.  Cast Members have been hard at work decking the halls (and the parks!) with gorgeous holiday decor.  Be sure to take time to check out some of the gingerbread displays around the resort.  Not only are they beautiful, but they also smell delicious too!  You can even buy gingerbread goodies and other treats.

    All Disney Resort Hotel Guests, whether they have purchased a vacation package or booked a room and tickets separately, are eligible for on-site perks such as Early Theme Park Entry.  Guests staying at Disney Deluxe Resorts or Deluxe Villa Resorts are eligible for Extended Evening Theme Park Hours on select dates.  Make sure you have linked your resort reservation to your My Disney Experience account.  When you scan your ticket, MagicBand, or Disney MagicMobile pass, your resort reservation will be verified for these perks.

    I hope that helps!  Lauren, if you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to stop by planDisney again.  Wishing you a wonderful vacation!
