    Going to stay at a Deluxe resort. Check in time 3pm. That morning of the day I am schedule to check in, can I get early entry into the theme parks?

    Hi Wayne,

    It's nice to see you planning Disney with planDisney again. Your stay at a Disney Deluxe Resort Hotel at Walt Disney World Resort this summer comes with perks, immersive luxury, and more perks! During the planning process, a big benefit of staying in a Disney Resorts Collection hotel is your ability to make advance reservations for dining for your entire length of stay (up to 10 days) 60 days before arrival. This perk also applies to Enchanting Extras Collection experiences like Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Magic Kingdom Park and Disney's Keys to the Kingdom Tour.

    The good news is flowing like pixie dust, Wayne. I'm pleased as Pumbaa to let you know that your eligibility for early theme park entry and extended evening theme park hours is tied to the dates of the resort reservation linked in your My Disney Experience account. With valid admission, a theme park reservation, and a method of entry (MagicBand, MagicBand+, Disney MagicMobile pass, or admission card), you can enter any theme park 30 minutes early on your check-in day. 

    It's been confirmed that extended evening theme park hours will be offered throughout all of 2023. They are typically offered at EPCOT on Mondays and Magic Kingdom Park on Wednesdays. Specific dates, times, and park locations for this magical gift of time will be available closer to your travel dates, but the current calendar is something to consider when planning your park days and making your initial theme park reservations.

    Thanks for helping me feel like the Fairy Godmother today, Wayne. If I can grant any other wishes for information, just give a little whistle!
