    We are staying at DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Orlando - Disney Springs® Area. Does it qualify for early park entry? If so, how do they know where we are staying at the gate?

    Howdy, Alyssa! Welcome to planDisney.

    I'm so glad you stopped by with your question. It's my pleasure to play a small part in helping you plan your next Disney adventure. 

    You've asked a great question, Alyssa. Early Theme Park Entry is one of the many benefits given to all Guests staying at Disney Resorts Collection hotels. Having a 30-minute head start on your Disney day gives you an amazing opportunity to ride one or two major attractions before the lines get busy. It's one of the main reasons I try to stay on property. However, what many people don't know is that there are also several hotels not owned by Disney that offer this benefit. One of those hotels is DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Orlando – Disney Springs Area. Although I've never stayed at this hotel, I believe you can link your hotel reservation to your My Disney Experience account using the confirmation number the hotel provides. When you arrive, I would also ask your hotel if they provide you with a card to use Early Theme Park Entry. You can also call your hotel ahead of time to clarify the process.

    I hope that's informative, Alyssa. Thanks for choosing to be our Guest.
