    Do Shades of Green guests have access to Extra Magic Hours?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Dawn!

    As one of the “military moms” here on the Panel, I’d like to extend our gratitude to you and your family for your service to our country. Together time is so important to our military families, and I’m so grateful for all the discounts offered to our service members when visiting the Walt Disney World Resort. 

    Shades of Green, the resort for military members located on Walt Disney World Resort property, is one of the best perks of all. This resort features spacious rooms, a gorgeous pool, lovely landscaping, and attractive pricing – and a phenomenal location just across the street from Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. While it’s not officially a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, Guests at Shades of Green do enjoy some of the perks that on-site Guests receive, including the Extra Magic Hours benefit and the ability to make FastPass+ selections 60 days in advance of your check-in date. 

    Dawn, Extra Magic Hours are one of my favorite benefits of being a Walt Disney World Resort hotel Guest. There’s something magical about being one of the first Guests in the park in the morning (or one of the last to leave at night), and that early access means we can squeeze even more attractions and even more fun into our day…all while the weather is at its coolest! Typically, the Extra Magic Hours schedule is released with the Park Hours about 180 days in advance, but keep in mind as you plan that hours are subject to  change, so continue to monitor park hours as you do your planning for your visit next autumn.

    Enjoy your stay at Shades of Green, and please come back and see us if you have any further questions as you plan and dream!

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
