    I have a reservation for Animal Kingdom and have the following question: I have opted for Disney plus and ordered magic bands- will this allow us early access to park?

    Hey there Stacy and welcome to planDisney!

    I'm so glad to be helping you today. I see you've been working on getting every last detail of your trip to the Walt Disney World Resort in order before June. Let's make sure you're prepared to have the most magical time ever!

    Disney Resorts Collection hotels like Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge along with a few other select hotels are definitely eligible for Early Theme Park Entry. You and your party can enter the theme park you have a Theme Park Reservation for 30 minutes before the general public every day. This particular perk comes your way just because you chose to stay on property so as long as you have a Ticket and Theme Park Reservations via the Disney Park Pass System you're all set for a magical morning. 

    Now for a little extra pixie dust. Since Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is a Disney Deluxe Resort, you're also able to take advantage of Extended Evening Theme Park Hours! That means y'all can hang out in whichever Disney Park is on the schedule and ride select attractions for those extra hours and party until the sun comes up...well maybe only for 2 hours after the original park closing time. Either way, any extra time in the Disney Parks is always a plus!

    Stacy, I hope I've made planning your Disney days this summer a little easier. Please feel free to come back if you have any more questions!

    Happy planning!
