    Hello, I am am planning a trip for me and my friends, and I was wondering how extended evening works. If we stay at deluxe resort, can we automatically attend extended evening? If not, how does that work? Do we need to make park reservations for that day?

    Hey there, Shelby, and welcome to planDisney!

    I love that you’re making sure that your crew has a fun time at The Most Magical Place on Earth. Your friends are so lucky to have you. I’ve recently had a staycation at a Deluxe Disney Resorts Collection hotel, so I am more than happy to share my experience with you.

    I have good news for you, Shelby: As long as your names are all linked to the Deluxe hotel stay’s reservation then, yes, you are automatically good-to-go to visit a theme park’s Extended Evening Hours. Just make sure that you have a theme park reservation for the theme park with Extended Evening Hours (if you have an undated ticket) or have a dated ticket for that specific park or one with a Park Hopper Option. For example, if you’re staying at Disney’s Riviera Resort with a dated ticket for EPCOT, you are still automatically eligible for Magic Kingdom Park’s extra hours if you can also park hop. Just tap into EPCOT at some point in the day before heading to Magic Kingdom Park.

    If you want to take full advantage of Extended Evening Hours, be sure to set an alarm for bit before 6 p.m. so that you can grab a boarding group for an attraction’s Virtual Queue. Even if you rode TRON Lightcycle / Run or Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind during the day, you all can still ride it again that night via a boarding group that was secured through the My Disney Experience App. 

    Shelby, I just know that you’re going to have an amazing friends’ vacay! If you have additional questions about your time at Walt Disney World, give me a holler here at planDisney. I’m all ears!

    Magic always,
