    I'm making park res. for Jan.What would you use as extended hrs for each park, and I see that there's a new ticketed after hours starting in Jan. How do I know which park to book to get deluxe extended hrs, in case one of the parks fills up? TY

    Hello, Tricia – welcome to planDisney!

    Thank you for this excellent question, and one that’s been on my mind lately too! Especially as a fellow Ontarian planning my vacation to Walt Disney World Resort in the new year. I wish I had Madame Leota's crystal ball to peer into the potential future hours and dates for Walt Disney World Resort’s – Extended Evening Theme Park Hours as a benefit for Guests of Disney Deluxe Resorts, and Disney Deluxe Villa Resorts. Stay tuned, because I feel that dates and times for Extended Evening Theme Park Hours will come forth soon, based on my observation of past trends.

    Tricia, my best advice, would be for you to wait a little bit to see when dates are released for Extended Evening Theme Park Hours in January if that is your priority, or go ahead and purchase your Disney After Hours special event tickets when available, if this event is your priority. It all depends on what your heart desires, Tricia because you are the magic!

    In my opinion, I don’t think that Extended Evening Theme Park Hours will be offered on the same dates as the Disney After Hours special ticketed event because of the benefit of this special event. According to the important information in the Disney After Hours - Get a Head Start on the Fun section, even though the Disney After Hours event officially begins at 10:00 PM, you will be able to enter a designated theme park as early as 7:00 PM without a Disney Park Pass Reservation, or additional theme park admission (subject to change).  

    Tricia, if you haven’t booked your Disney Resorts Collection Hotel, this would be a good time to see if there are any Walt Disney World Resort – Special Offers, Deals & Discounts. You are also welcome to access these offers by referring to the Places to Stay tab on the main page of your Disney account online, once you sign in. Furthermore, once you’re signed into your Disney account, be sure to update your profile and opt-in to receive applicable Disney-related news and offers.

    It was such an honour to offer my assistance today, Tricia – I hope you find the information helpful in making your important decisions.

    Best Disney Wishes – You’ve Got a Friend in Me!
