    I’m going to be staying at Disney World Dolphin hotel in August. Does this hotel qualify for the extra magic hours when the parks close?

    Hi Darryl, welcome to planDisney!

    Summer is synonymous with picnics, sunflowers, and unforgettable Walt Disney World Resort vacations. Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind officially opens May 27 in EPCOT and I keep hearing rave reviews. While you're waiting for your boarding group in the virtual queue to be called, the EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival has plenty of offerings to keep you busy. Alternately, EPCOT is within walking distance of the Walt Disney World Dolphin hotel (!!) if you'd prefer a midday pool break.

    I'm Happy as the dwarf to share that being a Guest of the Dolphin hotel does allow you to enjoy extended evening theme park hours on select nights in select theme parks. You are eligible for this benefit, as well as early theme park entry, on all dates of your stay, including your check-in and check-out dates. Scroll down on the webpage to view the current extended evening theme park hours schedule, which goes until July 20. The scheduling pattern is subject to change, but I'd consider the current pattern of extended hours at EPCOT on Mondays and Magic Kingdom park on Wednesdays when making your theme park reservations

    As for me, I'll be doing whatever planDisney panelists do in summer, and that's answering more Guests' Disney trip-planning questions. You know where to find me!
