    We have a split reservation for this summer. Staying at a Deluxe resort first and then a value resort . Can we take advantage of extended magic hours on the night that we check out of the Deluxe resort?

    Hey Melissa! Welcome to planDisney!

    When prepping for my next trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth choosing my Disney Resorts Collection hotel is my very favorite part.  I'm slowly but surely making my way through each and every one by planning split stays just like you.  We also love to live in the lap of luxury for a few nights and then move to a more budget-friendly but still magical Value Resort. With Disney Cast Members at Bell Services willing to help move your luggage between the Resorts, a split stay is an easy way to check out two unique hotel themes during one fantastic trip.

    While all Disney Resorts come with some fantastic perks such as prime locations close to the Theme Parks and extra time in the Parks with Early Theme Park Entry, Disney Deluxe Resorts offer just a little bit extra with Extended Evening Theme Park Hours.  These hours, which happen at select Theme Parks on select nights, are a great way to jump on all your favorite rides and attractions with low wait times, and to see the Parks in a near-empty state, especially if you stay all the way until the end of the night! While I'm usually an early bird, not a night owl,  you'll definitely catch me staying out late for the chance to walk right on to Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and snag a picture of an empty Main Street U.S.A. 

    You'll be excited to know that your Deluxe stay offers you the chance to visit the Park with Extended Evening Theme Park Hours even on the day you check out of your Deluxe Resort. Just like Cinderella, your enchanted evening ends at midnight, instead of the moment you move into your second Resort. 

    If you haven't yet made your Theme Park Reservations for your trip, I would suggest doing so as soon as possible.  While most of your vacation dates are wide open you don't want to wait too long and have to switch your itinerary around.  Enjoy visiting each of the four Theme Parks and make sure to have an extra DOLE Whip for me while you're there!

When we're not taking in the enchanting experiences of the parks, we're home in Massachusetts, probably planning our next trip! Learn More About Ashley
