    I’m staying at a Disney good neighbor hotel, and was wondering how I can get early admission to the park, which is offered on their website and the Disney website, when I can not add my hotel reservation to the my disney experience app.

    Hi Patrick! Welcome to planDisney! It's great to have you stop by!

    There is no shortage of amazing hotels surrounding the Walt Disney World Resort! Many of these are classified as Good Neighbor Hotels and include some additional perks to staying there. 

    For Early Theme Park Entry, there is a limited number of non-Disney Resort Hotels that participate in this benefit. You can check out the list here to verify if your hotel is included. If it is, you should be able to link your hotel to your My Disney Experience account in order for Cast Members to verify access to early entry on your park day. They will need to scan your MagicBand or admission card to do so.

    To link your hotel reservation, log into your My Disney Experience account and select "Resort Hotel" followed by "Link a Reservation." Enter your confirmation number provided upon booking and your last name. If you have already tried this and are having trouble, it's possible that you are not using the correct confirmation code. If you booked your resort through a third-party website, you may be using incorrect information. To get the correct code, I suggest calling the hotel you are staying at to retrieve the Disney-specific reservation number required for your My Disney Experience account. If this fails, try calling the Website Support line and speaking to a Cast Member for further assistance.

    Patrick, I hope this information helps you plan for your upcoming visit! Stop back and see us again at planDisney!

    See ya real soon!
