    I’m staying at Wyndham Lake Buena Vista, which I understand this hotel also allow early entry to the park. However I book through Expedia, how does it recognize I’m staying at that property and give me early access?

    Hey Howdy Hey Pauline and welcome to planDisney!

    Thank you so much for stopping by with your question about Early Theme Park Entry! These technical situations can be somewhat confusing but I will be more than happy to give you a little more insight and peace of mind now that you have your vacation booked. 

    The biggest thing you will want to do, regardless of where you booked your vacation, is to link your reservation to your My Disney Experience account. Whether you booked online, through a travel agent or a third-party site, you should have your information and confirmation number associated with your vacation specific to your hotel accommodations. In most cases, the hotels listed under the More Great Accommodations section of the Walt Disney World Resort site will also be allowed to link to your My Disney Experience account. Look for your confirmation email and you should find the confirmation number you will need for your next step. After you log into your My Disney Experience account, on the home screen highlight the hotel icon until you see the button "Link Reservation" come up. Click on that and follow the prompts. 

    On the morning you are going to take advantage of Early Theme Park Entry, you will see a separate line for this benefit to access the parks. The Cast Members in this line will scan your MagicBand, MagicBand+, MagicCard or your MagicMobile Pass to verify your hotel accommodations. As long as they can see where you are staying qualifies for this benefit, you should be all set!

    Best of luck as you continue your final weeks of preparation for your upcoming trip! If you have any further questions please feel free to reach out and let us know, we are happy to help!

    Have a Magical Day,
