    As I'm staying at the Drury plaza hotel near Disney springs do l need to show the cast member at the gate anything to get into early entry.

    Hey Melissa!

    With early access to the parks, you'll have more time to experience your favorite attractions, meet beloved characters, and create magical moments with your family and friends. 

    Since you said you are staying at the Drury Plaza Hotel Orlando Lake Buena Vista you do have that exclusive perk for Guests staying at Disney Resort hotels and select other hotels! Get ready to make unforgettable memories as you enjoy access to the parks 30 minutes before they open to the public. To take advantage of this enchanting opportunity, simply present your Resort ID upon arrival. 

    During the early entry period, select attractions, merchandise, and food and beverage locations will be operating. Whether you're yearning to soar through the skies on the exhilarating Avatar Flight of Passage in Pandora – The World of Avatar at Disney's Animal Kingdom or itching to pilot the Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge at Disney's Hollywood Studios, early theme park entry puts you at the front of the line for your favorite experiences.

    To make the most of this perk, consider arriving at the park gates early, armed with a game plan. Check the park's map in the My Disney Experience app to locate your must-visit attraction and chart the most efficient route to get there. By targeting your top attraction first, you'll not only avoid long wait times but also kick off your day with a magical adventure that sets the tone for the rest of your Disney experience.

    So, lace up your walking shoes, grab your Mickey ears, and get ready to embark on an unforgettable journey!
