    We have reservations for 6 nights at a moderate hotel, and are thinking of spending the last night in a deluxe hotel. Would that allow us extra magic hours for a different day in our stay? Ex: staying at deluxe hotel on Fri, extra magic hours on Wed?

    Hello, Anna. Welcome to planDisney. I'm so glad you've stopped by to chat about your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation. 

    Anna, as a perk of staying at any of the Walt Disney World Resort Hotels, like the moderate level hotel that you are staying at, you'll be able to take advantage of the new Early Theme Park Entry for Resort Guests program. This new extra allows Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel to enjoy the magic even earlier by granting access to any of the Walt Disney World Theme Parks an extra 30 minutes early before the park opens for the day! This is really going to give you such a head start each morning and I think you'll be able to cross off 2-3 of your must-do attractions off of the list each morning with little to no wait time. During this early entry time, select attractions will be open for you to enjoy. I've linked the list of offerings during this morning extra for you so you can make a game plan for each morning. 

    Guests staying at a Deluxe Resort or a Deluxe Villa Resort can also take advantage of Extended Theme Park Hours. This is where, on select evenings, a certain Walt Disney World Theme Park will stay open longer just for Guests staying at this level of resort. The perks that come along with staying at a Deluxe-level hotel are only for when you are staying there. You would not be able to transfer your deluxe resort privileges to another day of your vacation, Anna. If you were staying at a Deluxe Resort on your last night, that would be the evening you could enjoy the Extended Theme Park Hours. 

    Anna, I hope this helps you decipher which extra hours you can participate in. I think the extra 30 minutes in the morning is an excellent perk and I highly encourage you to take advantage of it each morning of your vacation. If you have any other questions before your trip, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm happy to help. 

    Have fun and enjoy!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
