    Hello, If you're staying at Coronado Springs in the Gran Destino Tower are you able to stay in the park for extended night hours? Also, are the days that the extended night hours for July 2024 available yet? Thank you in advance!!

    Hey Howdy Hey Chrissy and welcome to planDisney!

    Anytime you can have special access to the parks is time to cherish. Experiencing the parks with lower crowd levels gives you special access to so many attractions with lower wait times. Thank you for your question on specifics when it comes to Extended Evening Theme Park Hours. I will be happy to give you more information as well as some other opportunities you might want to consider for a lower-crowd Theme Park experience. 

    Chrissy, unfortunately, at this time, Extended Evening Hours only apply to Disney Deluxe Resorts, Disney Deluxe Villa Resorts and a few other selected hotels. The current list does not include Disney's Coronado Springs Resorts, I am sorry to say. Not to worry though, there are still several other ways to experience the parks with lower crowd levels! 

    One benefit you will enjoy on your upcoming vacation is Early Theme Park Entry. This benefit is available for all Guests staying onsite at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel. This will allow you into the parks 30 minutes before the general public and is plenty of time to get a few of the more popular attractions experienced before the parks officially open. Resort Transportation typically starts operations 45 minutes before Early Theme Park Entry so you will be sure to get there in plenty of time for your experience. Pro Tip: Many Guests will start their day with attractions close to the front of the parks. If you get a chance to experience them first, then when the parks officially open, you will be on your way to the back of the park where more time is needed for Guests to visit those areas. 

    Your other option is looking into Disney After Hours Events. These separately ticketed events are special evening access to select parks on select nights. Most attractions will be open for you to experience as well as special treats available included with the price of admission. This will give you 3 hours with lower crowd levels to zoom through the parks like never before. We have skipped a full-day pass and supplemented the purchase of these tickets with a prior trip. We were able to experience everything we wanted to in the evening and even enjoyed our favorite snacks while doing so! They really are special ways to experience the parks. 

    I am sorry I could not bring better news with the Extended Evening hours benefit. I hope you now have 2 solid options for navigating the parks with lower crowds on your upcoming vacation. If you have any further questions, please feel free to let us know, we are always happy to help!

    Have a Magical day,
