    Does the Disney Grand Floridian Resort give you the extra free park hours?

    Hi Jacqueline!
    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Yes!  One of the many benefits of staying at any Walt Disney World Resort hotel is the use of Extra Magic Hours which are exclusive to Disney Resort hotel guests at select parks on select days, where the park will open an hour early at 8.00am, or stay open a few hours after regular park hours. You can enjoy many attractions in those hours without having to utilise FastPass+, which you can schedule to use later (or earlier) in the day when the park is open to regular guests. Disney Transport will begin operating from the Resort hotels around 45 minutes before park opening,  so on those days offering Extra Magic Hours they will begin around 7.15am, and if you are staying at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, you will enjoy use of boats, buses and monorails to transport you around Walt Disney World. Another event you may enjoy before park opening is Disney Early Morning Magic - Toy Story Land, and Disney Early Morning Magic - Fantasyland which are two separate special ticketed events (you can purchase tickets online) that offer a limited amount of guests early access to these two magical lands in Disney's Hollywood Studios or Magic Kingdom Park. You will have exclusive use of Toy Story Land or Fantasyland between 7.45am-10.00am to enjoy select attractions, with breakfast included (at a location outside of Toy Story Land in Disney's Hollywood Studios, or at Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe at Magic Kingdom Park). As the park will open to regular guests at 9.00am, I would recommend that you enjoy your breakfast towards 10.00am, therefore fully utilising your exclusive time from 7.45am.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions. We will be happy to help you plan your magical holiday.
