    Is Early Theme Park Entry for Disney Resort guests in effect yet? I heard that it was announced but am not sure if it has been implemented.

    Excitement is building for the official beginning of “early park opening” for Guests staying at a hotel in the Disney Resorts Collection! I love getting an early morning start to my Disney Day! A quick-service breakfast and then we are out the door and headed for the parks!

    While the official start date is yet to be announced, we do know that the ½-hour early entry time is slated to begin around the time of The World’s Most Magical Celebration! That celebration, in honor of the 50th anniversary of the opening of the Walt Disney World Resort, begins on October 1st! It is possible that early entry could start prior to that date.

    Karen, as a helpful tip, if you have a visit planned prior to October, you might want to consider arriving early to the parks. I visited just last week and found the parks allowing Guests to enter about an hour earlier than posted park opening time. While this can’t be guaranteed, it’s always worth a try!
