    Hi , I am planning a trip in June 2018. I work for Hilton hotels so we will be staying at the Disney springs Hilton because my employee discount is just too great to pass up. This is a Disney Hilton so dose that mean I can still get the extra park hours?

    Welcome back, Stephanie! 

    Wow! What a fantastic perk of being an employee of Hilton Hotels. I have no doubt your discount allows you to experience some amazing places, including Walt Disney World® Resort! I also want to thank you for sending in your excellent question. 

    While the Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista - Disney Springs™ is located magically close to all the fun, this hotel is considered a "Good Neighbor" hotel and is not eligible for the Extra Magic Hours benefit. This benefit is reserved exclusively for guests staying at resort hotel's owned and operated by Walt Disney World® (the Walt Disney World® Swan & Dolphin Resorts are the only exceptions). 

    However, the Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista - Disney Springs™ Area does provide complementary theme park transportation to/from the theme parks. So even though you are not able to participate in the Extra Magic Hours benefit, having access to transportation is priceless! 

    I hope this helps in planning your vacation, Stephanie! I've also included more information on Extra Magic Hours, just select the highlighted link to read all about it. Please let me know if you should have any additional questions. I am here to help.
