    We are staying at the Wyndham Grand Orlando Bonnet Creek. It is listed as a Disney Gateway Hotel but I can’t find a list of any benefits that this gives us. Does this hotel allow you early entry to the theme parks and/or the ability to purchase ILL at 7am?

    Hey there Laura and welcome back to planDisney!

    It's great to have you back again. We love to see a returning friend here at planDisney and I do hope I'll be able to help you today.

    The Wyndham Grand Orlando Bonnet Creek is listed under the More Great Accommodations section of area hotels. Now when I looked at the list of hotels eligible for Early Theme Park Entry, I didn't see it listed there. It's also not listed as a hotel with the 7 a.m. Individual Lightning Lane purchase option. When you say you're staying there, do you mean you're there now? If so, you'll be able to make those Lightning Lanes selections on the day of your park visit as soon as that park is open. 

    If you mean that you have a stay booked for later, you may want to consider switching your hotel accommodations to a Disney Resorts Collection hotel. I saw some package rates among the Value and Moderate Resorts that were comparable to the rates for packages at your current hotel. They would also give you access to the Early Theme Park Entry you seek. Certain ones like Disney's Pop Century Resort would even give you access to The Disney Skyliner!

    Laura, I hope I've been able to help you today. If you have any other questions please feel free to come back for another chat!

    Happy planning!
