    Are Extended Evening Theme Park Hours available on your check out day for Deluxe Resorts? I check out of the Poly on a day Extended Evening Hours are offered at the Magic Kingdom and have my Magic Kingdom Park Reservation for that day. May I return?

    Hi Melissa!

    Welcome to planDisney! 

    We are all looking forward to experiencing Extended Evening Theme Park Hours. As you have noted, Guests of deluxe and deluxe villa resorts will be able to enjoy these extended evening hours as we launch The World's Most Magical Celebration. I am so happy to hear that you have an upcoming visit to the Walt Disney World Resort scheduled.

    I chatted with two Cast Members to get an answer to your question. Given that operational updates could change, I have to preface this response with a note for you to be sure to keep checking those operational updates since policies and procedures could change by the time of your visit. There are two possible scenarios that I discussed with the Cast Members who helped me - 1) You check out of your resort and do not check into another Disney Resorts Collection property. In this situation, you should be allowed to take advantage of the extended evening hours or 2) You check out of your deluxe or deluxe villa resort and check into a moderate or value resort on the same day. In this instance, your new stay would not be at a deluxe or deluxe villa resort, so you would not be able to take advantage of the extended evening hours.

    Of course, these new extended evening hours have not been implemented yet, so aside from changes in policies and procedures that might come prior to the official launch, I am not quite sure what the logistics of this will look like in practice or how interpretations of the policy and procedures may change. So, please check back as you get closer to the dates of your visit!

    Melissa, looking at your trip dates, I do hope you make advanced dining reservations and that you already made your Disney Park Pass system reservations. Definitely download the My Disney Experience Mobile App if you have not done so already and get ready for the magic!

    Magic and memories,
