    We are planning a trip May 21 - 28. We are staying at the Fort Wilderness Cabins. I have just been made aware they do not include extended hours at the disney parks. If this is correct where can we stay to get the extended hours privileges

    Welcome to planDisney, Nancy. I am so glad you stopped because your enchanted adventure is just around the corner. Do you have your thick permanent marker and autograph book ready to meet your favorite Disney characters? These are a must for my crew on every visit.

    The Cabins at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort are one of my favorite places to stay. The tranquility, privacy, and, kitchen sold us the minute we walked through the door. It is so unique but you are correct, this Disney Resorts Collection hotel is only eligible for Early Theme Park Entry. The Resort hotels that are granted Extended Evening Theme Park Hours are mostly Disney Deluxe and Disney Deluxe Villa Resorts. Here is a comprehensive list as of today.

    • Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort
    • Boulder Ridge Villas at Disney's Wilderness Lodge
    • Copper Creek Villas & Cabins at Disney's Wilderness Lodge

    planDisney Pro Tip: Nancy, even though The Cabins at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort do not have Extended Evening Theme Park Hours they do have some other unique opportunities. You can go horseback riding, take archery lessons, and explore the Tri-Circle-D Ranch where over 90 majestic steeds are housed and pampered to make sure they are available for their roles around the "World."

    I am here to help. Please write me back directly with any follow-up questions.

    Nancy, enjoy making many Magical Memories.
