    Will the extra magic hours for deluxe guests continue in 2023?

    Welcome to planDisney, Shanna!

    If you're wanting to maximize the magic of your Walt Disney World trip, then staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel is the way to make your wishes come true. There's just something enchanting about being immersed in Disney magic from the first to the last moment of your vacation. The complimentary transportation, world-class customer service from Cast Members, and the extra time in the parks are just some of the amazing benefits of staying on-site.

    Speaking of extra time in the parks, this is my favorite benefit of staying on property. Every Guest staying at a Disney Resort can enjoy early Theme Park entry. This means you can enter any Theme Park up to 30-minutes early each day. Yes, each day! This will enable you to ride some of the more popular attractions before the lines get long and wait times increase.

    Guests staying at Disney Deluxe Resort Hotels or Disney Deluxe Villas get even more pixie dust sprinkled on their stay. This is because they can enjoy the extra benefit of extended evening hours in select Theme Parks on select nights. You can find out when these nights are by visiting the extended evening hours page and scrolling down to the bottom. The romantic ambiance and shorter wait times make this my favorite time to enjoy the parks. 

    At this moment in time, Disney has not made public any plans to change these benefits. So we're not sure what 2023 will look like. All we know is that early Theme Park entry will continue through 2023. However, keep visiting Disney Parks Blog to find the latest information and updates.

    Also, Disney just announced that at 6:00 PM, Guests who have access to extended evening theme park hours have an additional opportunity to request to join the virtual queue for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. This is my new favorite ride! Make sure you experience it, Shanna.

    I hope you have a great trip, Shanna. May all your dreams come true! Thanks for stopping by planDisney.

    See ya real soon!
