    Are extra magic hours available for guests staying at a Disney hotel?

    Hello Mischa! That’s a great question! I’m happy to provide you with an update on the latest benefits regarding park hours!

    The traditional “Extra Magic Hours” benefit has been retired. However, the Disney Parks have introduced new park hours benefits for Guests staying at hotels in the Disney Resorts Collection. Rise and shine! Beginning October 1, 2021, Guests of all Walt Disney World Resort hotels can enter the Disney Parks a ½-hour prior to the official posted opening time! This new Early Theme Park Entry benefit applies to all parks, every day!

    There is an extra benefit for Guests staying at deluxe resort hotels and deluxe villas. Guests of those resorts can participate in Extended Evening Theme Park Hours at both Magic Kingdom Park and EPCOT! This benefit will begin on October 4, 2021, at EPCOT and on October 6, 2021, at Magic Kingdom Park! Under the current schedule, EPCOT will remain open until midnight, and Magic Kingdom Park will remain open until 11:00 PM! Extended Evening Theme Park Hours are currently posted through November 18, 2021. Check the Walt Disney World Resort website for ongoing updates!

    Mischa, I hope you’ll be able to take full advantage of this extra park time for Guests!
