    On 10/25 I'm checking out from a Deluxed hotel (AKL) and checking in into a Value Resort. I'm going to Hollywood Studios that same day... Can I still use the Early Entry benefit to the park, even tho is the day I'm checking out from AKL?

    Hey there, hi there, Yinalys! Welcome, and thanks for your question.

    You'll be arriving at Walt Disney World before you know it, and you've picked great options from the Disney Resorts Collection hotels. As a guest at any of the Disney resorts, you'll be entitled to Early Theme Park Entry, even at your value resort. This gives you a 30-minute advantage at any of the four theme parks. You will still need a valid theme park admission ticket, as well as a theme park reservation, even if the plan is to only go for that 30-minute bonus time. 

    Did you know, Yinalys, that as a guest of Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, which is a deluxe resort, you'll also be able to take advantage of Extended Evening Theme Park Hours? You can use these late evening hours even on the day you check out of your deluxe resort, so if you can stay up late on moving day, you can enjoy a little more of the magic.

    Also, another little added bonus, bell services will transfer your luggage for you from one resort to the other. Just notify them that you'd like to utilize this complimentary service, and they can pick the bags up from your room when you check out and deliver them to your new resort.

    Have a magical, memorable time, Yinalys!
