    We’re staying at Lake Buena Vista resort, which is categorized as a WDW good neighbor resort. Are we able to participate in the rope drops at the parks?

    Hey Howdy Hey Alison and welcome to planDisney!

    I love that you will be staying at a Good Neighbor resort so close to the Magic on your upcoming trip. There are so many reasons that staying at a Good Neighbor resort is the right move and one of the big ones is the perks. Being so close you will have a few perks that are not available to other hotels. Let's jump in and talk about entry to the parks. 

    Early Theme Park Entry is a perk that applies to all Guests staying at a Disney Resort Collection hotel as well as many of the Good Neighbor hotels. You will be able to see the full list online to check if your hotel is on the list. As long as it is, with this perk, you can get into the parks BEFORE rope drop! You will have access to the parks 30 minutes before the general public does at official opening hours. So if you have attractions in the parks you want to experience with minimal wait times, I would highly suggest taking advantage of this benefit! 

    If you are still looking for suggestions on dining, boy do I have one that will fit the season! Liberty Tree Tavern in Magic Kingdom serves a hearty family-style portion of the traditional Thanksgiving foods that you might want to check out. While I do love a good meal, I really am here for the dessert offerings. The Oooey Gooey Toffee Cake for dessert is worth every tasty bite! 

    I am so excited for you to experience Walt Disney World around the end of November. There is no better way to experience to most Magical time of the year than in the most Magical place on Earth! There will be so much to experience such as the resorts decked out in their holiday best that you will be able to take special pictures in. There is also so much we are still waiting to hear the official word from Disney such as the highly anticipated return of Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party in Magic Kingdom which is rumored to make its Magical return this year. To keep up on all of the things happening for your trip, keep an eye on Disney Parks Blog which will surely have the most exciting news and announcements for your trip! 

    Best of luck on your continued planning for your trip later this year and if you have any further questions, please feel free to reach out, we would be happy to help!

    Have a Magical Day,
