    If we stay in a Disney Resort, do we get perks on getting to the park early (and late), and have less wait in lines and be able to serve rides at Hollywood Studios and Epcot? Plan to stay from 12/23-12/26

    Hi Reginald! Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney!

    Ready to set your holiday plans in stone? A Walt Disney World Resort vacation sounds like a practically perfect way to celebrate.  Not only will you get to see the Parks decorated in their holiday best, you'll also have the option to join in on all the festive fun at Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, take in the seasonal décor at all the Disney Resorts Collection hotels and savor special treats as you make your way through the Holiday Cookie Stroll that is part of the EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays

    Choosing to stay at a Disney Resort is a great way to feel like you're constantly surrounded by the magic.  With over 25 Disney Resorts to choose from, you know you can find one that is suited for your family's dreams and your budget.  Staying at a Disney Resort also offers many incredible perks! You'll be able to use Disney's complimentary transportation options to get around the more than 40 square miles of the Resort, be one of the first to select your Individual Lightning Lane choices through the Disney Genie+ Service each day of your trip, and spend extra time in the Parks with Early Theme Park Entry

    Any Guest of a Disney Resorts Collection hotel is welcome to join the fun a little early each day with Early Theme Park Entry.  Every morning, you'll have 30 minutes to explore any Theme Park before they open to the general public! Personally, this is my favorite time of day! You get to be one of the first Guests walking down Main Street U.S.A. and to hop on popular rides like Seven Dwarfs Mine Train with little to no wait! 

    Guests of Disney Deluxe Resorts, such as Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa and Disney's Beach Club Resort, are also given the benefit of Extended Evening Theme Park Hours.   On select nights, Guests of Deluxe Resorts are able to stay at select Theme Parks for a few hours after the Parks close to the general public.  Again, this is a great time to ride all your favorite attractions with much shorter wait times!

    Enjoy every magical moment!

Hi All, I'm Ashley! From the very beginning Walt Disney World Resort has always been a part of my life. As a child I excitedly helped to plan family trips, as a young adult I planned our "happily ever after" right on Disney property, and now I'm lucky enough to plan magical vacations for my three incredible children. 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
