    I'll be staying at a Disney Springs Resort Area Hotel (Wyndham Garden) It appears I won't have access to all the benefits of staying at a primary Disney Resort, but I can't tell which benefits I'll get and which ones I won't.

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Tammy!

    It's so exciting that you've booked yourself a Walt Disney World Resort vacation next spring. Staying in the Disney Springs area means you're going to be steps from all the amazing dining and entertainment options there, as well as just a short ride away from the Theme Parks!

    The hotel that you'll be staying at, Wyndham Garden Lake Buena Vista, does give you access to some of the benefits of staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel. There are a few things that are not included in the Disney Springs area hotels, like the ability to make charges to your room using your MagicBand or complimentary transportation directly to your hotel, but you will be able to take advantage of Extra Magic Hours! That's extra time in the Theme Parks exclusively for Resort Hotel guests so you can ride some of your favorite attractions with fewer people around than there are later in the day. You will also be able to make your FastPass+ selections up to 60 days in advance instead of the regular 30-day booking window so you can get the jump on picking the times that work best for you!

    I hope this answers your questions, Tammy, and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you plan your magical vacation.
