    What nights are the extra magic hours for deluxe resort guests at MK and Epcot? Do resort buses run late enough to get us back to our resort?

    Hi Jaynee,

    Welcome back to planDisney! That’s exciting that you have a Walt Disney World Resort vacation planned and that you are staying at one of the Deluxe Disney Resorts Collection hotels.

    There are so many benefits to staying at any Disney Resorts Collection hotel. In addition, Guests of Disney Deluxe Resorts, Disney Deluxe Villa Resorts and other select hotels can enjoy Extended Evening Hours on select nights in select theme parks, so you have extra time to enjoy many of your favorite attractions after the park is officially closed to other Guests. (Valid Theme Park Admission is required.) The exact dates and times vary and are subject to change. You can view current hours and park locations on the Hours & Events Calendar. Hopefully, there are several during your stay. Also, check the Extended Evening Hours page on the website where you can view which attractions are typically available and learn more about an extra opportunity to enter the virtual queue for select attractions. I’m also happy to report that the Extended Evening Hours benefit will continue into 2024, which is super exciting news! 

    Just a reminder, Jaynee, as a Disney Resort hotel guest you can also take advantage of the Early Theme Park Entry benefit, allowing Guests of Disney Resort hotels and other select hotels to enter the theme parks 30 minutes before scheduled opening hours, which means you can ride your favorite attractions before the park opens. (Valid Theme Park Admission and Theme Park Reservations are required.)

    And never fear, complimentary resort transportation will continue to run to get you back to your home-away-from-home resort. Resort transportation begins 45 minutes prior to Disney theme park opening time and up to 1 hour after Disney theme park closing time. 

    I hope this information is helpful to you, Jaynee. Your vacation is sure to be full of “deluxe” moments! If you have other questions, you can always stop back by planDisney. We are happy to help!

    Wishing you many magical memories,

A Land and Sea vacation combining an action-packed Walt Disney World Resort visit and a relaxing Disney Cruise Line voyage is my favorite way to do Disney.
