    If I stay at a the Wilderness resort for one night does this mean I can get into a theme park one hour early?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Jules!

    There are many reasons to stay at Disney's Wilderness Lodge. This northwest-inspired paradise is my favorite hotel in the whole world. Just wait until you see the magnificent lobby. The first time you walk into the Lodge is guaranteed to be a jaw-dropping experience. Be sure to make your way out to the walkway along Bay Lake during your stay. Fire Rock Geyser erupts there hourly during daylight hours. Find time to take the relaxing boat ride from the back of the resort to Magic Kingdom Park, too. Your blood pressure will thank you. And don't forget to rub Humphrey's nose at the bottom of the totem pole at the entrance to the Wilderness Lodge Mercantile. Doing so reportedly unleashes the magic for your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. 

    One of the benefits of staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel like Disney's Wilderness Lodge is that you are eligible to take advantage of Extra Magic Hours in the theme parks. So, yes, you may enter the theme park that offers morning Extra Magic Hours one hour early during your stay. You are also eligible to experience Extra Magic Hours in the evening while you are a registered guest at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel. Check the park schedules to see which of the theme parks are offering Extra Magic Hours during your vacation. 

    Let us know if you have any additional questions as you prepare for your upcoming visit. We'd be happy to help!
