    I am staying at the Wilderness Lodge beginning 8/31/23 and have park reservations for the Magic Kingdom. Am I eligible resort early entry the morning of 8/31, even though I won’t have an assigned room yet? I will have completed on line check in. Thanks!

    Hi there, Jennifer!  Welcome to planDisney!

    I'm so excited to hear that you'll be calling Disney's Wilderness Lodge your home away from home during your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation!  This Disney Resorts Collection Hotel is one of my favorites.  In fact, my family and I just stayed there a few months ago.  I'm certain that you'll fall in love with the rustic elegance of this property just like I did. 

    Jennifer, I'm happy to tell you all of the benefits of staying right in the middle of the magic at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel, including early theme park entry, begin on your check-in date.  Even if a room hasn't been assigned to you yet, when the Cast Members at Magic Kingdom Park scan your MagicBand, Key to the World Card, or Disney MagicMobile pass, it will show them that you are staying at Disney's Wilderness Lodge that night.  You will be able to take advantage of early theme park entry starting on your arrival day, and you may also purchase Individual Lightning Lane entrances for some of the most popular attractions starting at 7:00 a.m. that morning as well.

    During your stay at Disney's Wilderness Lodge, be sure to drop by Geyser Point Bar & Grill for a drink or a bite to eat.  The atmosphere at this casual eatery is so relaxing, and the views of Bay Lake are stunning.  I highly recommend Geyser Point Bar & Grill's bison cheeseburger.  It's one of the best burgers you'll find in all of Walt Disney World Resort!  No need to make a dining reservation for Geyser Point Bar & Grill.  You can simply use your My Disney Experience mobile app to join the walk-up waitlist.

    As you plan for your vacation, please visit us again if you have any additional questions.  We would love to help!

    Have a magical day!
