    If I stay at a participating hotel that provides early entry do I also get the same benefits for Lightning Lanes and early reservations?

    Hi Stacie! Welcome to planDisney!

    Even though the fall is upon us I bet you're already looking forward to the sweet sights, smells and sounds of spring so that you can head down to Walt Disney World Resort for your vacation!  My family and I have a spring trip planned as well and over here my kids are already getting excited about their first time saving the galaxy on Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind.  If you haven't tried this new attraction out yet I would definitely recommend it as a one-of-a-kind fast-flying adventure! 

    Whether you're planning to stay in one of the more than 25 Disney Resorts Collection hotels, the Walt Disney World Swan Hotel, Dolphin Hotel, Swan Reserve, Shades of Green on Walt Disney World Resort, or one of the Good Neighbor hotels of Walt Disney World you'll be close to the magic of the Theme Parks, Water Parks and shopping, dining and entertainment district of Disney Springs.  Different Resorts offer different benefits and I'd be happy to help you decide which is the perfect Resort for you and your party!

    Depending on which of these Resorts you choose to stay you may or may not receive the same benefits as those Guests staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel.  Guests of Disney Resorts, the Walt Disney World Swan, Dolphin, Swan Reserve and Shades of Green are all able to enter each Park 30 minutes early each day with Early Theme Park Entry.  Guests of these select Resorts are also able to make Individual Lightning Lane Reservations at 7 a.m. for certain attractions within the Parks.  All other Guests, regardless of where they are staying, are welcome to make their first Lightning Lane selections with Disney Genie+ Service at 7 a.m. and their Individual Lightning Lane selections at the official Park opening time.  

    If your Resort allows for Early Theme Park Entry I would highly suggest trying to get to the Parks before "rope drop"! I've found that entering the Parks early makes it easy to just walk on to some of the most popular attractions and rides with little to no wait! Enjoy every moment of your trip!

Meet the Panelist: Ashley, Massachusetts

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
