    Hi.We are checking into the Swan Reserve on Wednesday, our park tickets and reservations are for that day. Will we be able to take advantage of early park hours, on Wednesday, the day we are checking in? And make LL and ILL at 7am instead of 9am?

    Hi Gus! Thanks for stopping by planDisney!

    The Walt Disney World Swan Hotel has a special place in my Disney-loving heart because it was the very first hotel I ever stayed in at Walt Disney World Resort way back in 1989! Since then we've stayed more times than I can count, definitely making it feel like a home away from home.  I've yet to try the Walt Disney World Swan Reserve because it was not open during our last family vacation, but I'm sure that one of my upcoming trips will be spent checking out this beautiful new hotel and all it has to offer.

    Gus, you're going to be so excited to hear that the benefits you get from staying at the Walt Disney World Swan Reserve do in fact start on the day you check in and continue until midnight on the day you check out.  This means that you and your party will be able to book those oh-so-hard-to-get attractions, like Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance (and maybe even the new Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind!) right at 7 a.m. on the day of your visits to those Parks, instead of having to wait until the Parks officially open. While I don't know for sure that Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind will be on the list for an Individual Lightning Lane purchase, I DO know I'm going to be getting in line to try it on my next trip! Did you know this sure-to-be-amazing attraction is set to open on May 27th?! I can't wait! 

    Just as you're able to make your Individual Lightning Lane purchases early, you'll also be able to take advantage of Early Theme Park Entry the day you check in to your hotel.  There are so many benefits to staying at these Resorts, even though the Walt Disney World Swan, Walt Disney World Dolphin and Walt Disney World Swan Reserve are not owned by Disney.  They're in a perfect location to walk to both Disney's Hollywood Studios and EPCOT and are close enough to enjoy the entertainment and dining options on Disney's BoardWalk.  While you can't beat the unexplainable magic that lies within the Disney Resorts Collection hotels, these definitely come in a close second.

    Enjoy every minute of your magical vacation!
