    What resorts does a guest need to be staying at to get into Disney After Hours for free? I will be staying in All Star Movies in September. Does that one qualify?

    Hi Meaghan! Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question!

    I am so happy to hear you plan on staying at a Disney Resort hotel for your upcoming visit. Disney Resort hotels are an extension of the magic you will see in the theme parks! They have unique theming, dining options, and activities for the entire family to experience. Choosing to stay at a Disney Resort hotel comes with perks, including Early Theme Park Entry, dining plan options, and proximity to the theme parks. Guests staying at Deluxe Resort HotelsDeluxe Villas, and other select hotels get the additional benefit of participating in Extended Evening Theme Park Hours. Here is the not-so-magical news: Disney's All-Star Movies Resort does not qualify for Extended Theme Park Hours, as it is in the Value Resort category.

    Hakuna Matata! If experiencing the theme parks in the evening is something you are interested in, you can participate in Disney After Hours! Available at select theme parks on select nights, guests can enjoy three more hours post-park closing and snack on ice cream novelties, popcorn, and select beverages, which are included with your admission. Pricing varies by theme park and availability. 

    Meaghan, thanks for visiting planDisney! If you need a sprinkle of pixie dust while planning your visit, send me questions at any time. You've got a friend in me!

    Happy Planning!
