    Does the following good neighbor hotel offer the early entry perk? Holiday Inn Resort Orlando-Lake Buena Vista If so how do I link the reservation to my WDW app?

    Hi Jill,

    Welcome to planDisney! Early Theme Park Entry at Walt Disney World is a great way to make the most out of your day and get a start on the magic before everyone else can even arrive. I am a late sleeper but several of my friends who swear by rope-dropping the theme parks tell me that the early entry enables them to get in line for those rides that typically have a long wait before everyone else and significantly reduces the wait time. They also love getting pictures of themselves in front of theme park icons like Cinderella Castle without a lot of other guests in them.

    The Holiday Inn Orlando - Disney Springs Resort Area is included in the list of hotels that qualify for Early Theme Park Entry. As a Disney Good Neighbor hotel, you will also have access to reliable transportation to the theme parks starting 2 hours before the park opening. Once you arrive you will simply show them your MagicMobile Pass, MagicBand+, or an Early Entry Theme Park voucher provided by the hotel.

    To set up your MagicMobile and connect your reservation you will need to set up a My Disney Experience account if you do not already have one. Once your account is created make sure to create accounts or connect accounts for all of the people that will be staying in your room with you. Next, you need to link your hotel reservation. Navigate to "My Plans" and click "Link to Account" then "Link Hotel." Simply enter your reservation or confirmation number here and it will be connected to your My Disney Experience Account.

    I recently loved using MagicMobile because all I needed for everything at the theme parks was my phone. To set up a MagicMobile Pass on your phone open the My Disney Experience app and select the 3-line "hamburger" icon (☰) in the bottom-right corner. Simply select the Disney MagicMobile tile and follow the instructions to choose your pass style. Some even have fun interactions as a little surprise!

    Happy Planning
