    If you stay at a Disney World hotel do you still get early admission or just extended evenings? Thank you

    Hey there, Hayley! Welcome to planDisney! I'm so glad that you've stopped by with such a great Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning question. I love chatting Disney with my pals, pal!

    Before you know it, you'll be arriving at your Resort Hotel at The Most Magical Place on Earth, ready to begin your magical adventure. How exciting! With the unmatched Disney theming, proximity to the theme parks, fantastic pools, fabulous dining options, and oh-so-fun recreation offerings and Resort activities, it's impossible for me to decide what I love most about staying at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel. But I do know that Early Theme Park Entry for Disney Resort Hotel Guests and Extended Evening Theme Park Hours are two of my favorite perks, and I'm thrilled to chat with you about them today!

    Guests staying in a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel and other participating hotels can take advantage of 30 minutes of Early Theme Park Entry for Disney Resort Hotel Guests every day at all four of the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks. My family and I love taking advantage of this perk, and if you and your travel party are early birds, you will love it, too. It's the perfect way to arrive early, beat the heat and the crowds, and hop on your must-do attractions without long wait times. Just be aware that not all of the attractions are open for Early Entry, so check out the list of available attractions and plan accordingly. 

    If you are staying at Disney Deluxe Resort or Disney Deluxe Villa Resort, you can also take advantage of Extended Evening Theme Park Hours at Magic Kingdom Park and EPCOT on select nights. Currently, the schedule is for two extra hours at these theme parks on Monday and Wednesday evenings, but since this schedule is subject to frequent change, I suggest checking out the schedule as your vacation approaches. The wait times for attractions are really low during these extra hours, and my family and I love taking advantage of both Early Entry and Extended Evening Hours ... with a midday pool break and nap in between, of course. Again, be sure to check out the list of attractions that are planned to operate during these hours so that you don't miss a thing! More magic is always better!

    I hope this was helpful, Hayley, and I hope you have the most magical and memorable upcoming vacation! Please feel free to stop by any time with any vacation planning questions you may have along the way. You've got a friend in planDisney.

    I hope to see ya real soon,
