    chEARs Dawn!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. No matter what type of room you choose, staying at as a Resort Guest is the best decision you will make for your vacation! There are so many benefits to staying at the Walt Disney World Resort. Disney’s Magical Express, complimentary transportation, and Extra Magic Hours are just some of the many perks! As a Disney Vacation Club Member, you also have access to exclusive events, including a Beverage Tasting Series and a Cake Decorating Workshop!

    Extra Magic Hours are complimentary to Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, including Disney Vacation Club properties. They are typically offered multiple times per week at different Parks in the morning or evening. Depending on what date you are visiting, as a Disney Vacation Club Member, you will also have access to Moonlight Magic, which is a VIP Member party! The fantastic events include complimentary parking and refreshments with little to no wait times at iconic attractions in the Parks! Keep an eye out on the Member Benefits page and Disney Parks Blog. They will be the first place to announce the 2020 dates!

    Dawn, my family loves to stay Club Level when we visit the Resorts. We are grazers, so the complimentary food available in the Club Lounge is perfect for most of our meals. We also enjoy the current offering of three additional FastPass+ selections per day. To be honest, though, we don’t use this benefit often, and remember, perks and benefits are subject to change. If we arrive early, take advantage of Extra Magic Hours, and strategically plan our three complimentary FastPasses, we have plenty of time to take in all the Magic!

    If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to come back. I wish you much pixie dust while planning!
