    I'm going to reserve tickets for Disney World in the 3rd part and use your hotel, does it include the Early Entry Special?

    Hello Hyunseon! 

    Welcome to planDisney! I'm very excited that you are going to visit Walt Disney World Resort in a few months! Springtime is my favorite time to visit the Parks and I know you will love it! 

    I have good news for you my friend! If you are staying on-site at a Walt Disney World Resorts Collection Hotel you are given many benefits. One of them is the ability to enter any of the four main Theme Parks including Magic Kingdom Park, Disney's Animal Kingdome Theme Park, Disney's Hollywood Studios, and EPCOT, 30 minutes before regular Park opening time. That means you get a jump start on all the fun before everyone else! I always make use of Early Theme Park Entry because I usually can experience at least two attractions with minimal wait. My top tip is to choose attractions that are usually a long wait during the rest of the day. For example, I always choose Peter Pan's Flight at Magic Kingdom Park and Remy's Ratatouille Adventure at EPCOT as my Early Theme Park Entry must-dos. They are family favorites and tend to get very long wait times as the day progresses. 

    Don't forget one of the best advantages to staying on-site is the ability to book dining and Enchanting Extras, 60 days before you arrive and for the length of your stay (up to 10 days). My family loves to sit down for a meal at least once a day at a Table Service Restaurant. These are restaurants with a waiter, coloring pages for my kids, and many times a nice cocktail for mom to enjoy. On my most recent trip, my family had some amazing pizza at Via Napoli in EPCOT. I'm from New York, and we know good pizza when we eat it and this pizza was fabulous. We also had a chance to experience an Enchanting Extra that was just magical. We enjoyed a specialty cruise that took us out over the Seven Seas Lagoon and Bay Lake to enjoy the sites and then watched Happily Ever After, a nighttime spectacular, from the water. The music came in through special speakers and the view was amazing! It is a memory I will never forget. No matter what you plan, make sure to savor the moments and take time to just sit back and enjoy yourself!

    I hope this helps and as always if you need any help you can let me know directly! 

    Happy Planning!
