    Hi! We are staying at Swan Reserve in January. Disney’s site says this resort qualifies for Extra Evening Theme Park hours. The Swan and Dolphin website says this is temporarily suspended. Is this true?

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, David. I'm so glad you've stopped by with your question. 

    I am so excited for you, David. The Walt Disney World Swan Reserve is simply stunning and I personally cannot wait to stay there. I was just driving by it yesterday and it truly is such an impressive looking hotel. You are going to have a great time. 

    I think you'll be happy to know that the Walt Disney World Swan Reserve is a part of the Extended Evening Hours. I actually took a look at their website and noticed that what you are seeing is actually still called Extra Magic Hours which is the old name for the program. The website has just not been updated on their end. 

    During Extended Evening Hours a select Walt Disney World Theme Park will be open a few hours later in the night only to Guests staying at a Deluxe Hotel. Most attractions will be available throughout the night as well as merchandise locations. It's the perfect time to get in some of your favorite rides without the wait times that you can find throughout the day. Don't forget that being an on-property Guest also allows you early entry into all four Walt Disney World Theme Parks as well. Early entry starts 30 minutes prior to that particular park opening time. All four theme parks participate in early entry each day. I'm always amazed at how much I can cross off of my must-do list with this little extra benefit. Just the other day I was able to ride Space Mountain and the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train all before Magic Kingdom Park was technically open. It was so much fun. 

    I hope this helps, David. I'm really glad you will get to enjoy both extended hours on your upcoming vacation. If you have any other questions in the meantime, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm happy to help. 

    Have fun and Happy New Year!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
