    Hi! If I stay at an on property non disney owned hotel in April 2020 do I still get 60 day faspass and EMH? And which non disney owned on property hotel do you recommend? (We are going for run disney) Thanks!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Caroline! I’m excited to see that you have a plan in the works to visit the Walt Disney World Resort next Spring! There are so many great events to enjoy during your trip! Thanks for sending us your question.

    You do have a few options when it comes to staying off-site. Disney Springs Resort Area Hotels may be just what you're looking for! You will get to enjoy limited benefits like Extra Magic Hours and the ability to make your FastPass+ selections 60-days before your vacation. They’re also pretty conveniently located right next to Disney Springs. So you have all those shops, restaurants and activities just a few steps away!

    Walt Disney World Good Neighbor Hotels are often close to Disney theme parks, but they do not offer the same perks. They may offer complimentary continental breakfast or shuttle service to the theme parks, but Extra Magic Hours or the 60-day FastPass+ window is not part of their benefits. 

    There’s so much fun in store for you during your visit! Along with your run Disney events, the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival will be in full swing during your dates. I love seeing all of the topiaries of Disney’s classic characters all over the park!

    Caroline, I hope this information is helpful to you. Please feel free to come back to see us if you have any more planning questions. Helping you with the details of your next magical visit is our pleasure!
