    I am thinking of staying at the Walt Disney World Swan Reserve. What proof will I use to gain access to early entry and extended evening hours?

    Hi Patrick! Welcome to planDisney! Oh boy! You're less than two months away from your anticipated arrival date! The planning stage can be a ton of fun trying to decide where you want to stay and what restaurants you plan to eat at.

    The Walt Disney World Swan Reserve is located in one of the best areas on Walt Disney World property! You are directly in the middle of two theme parks and are able to walk back and forth between each of them. You also have boat access just steps away from your hotel room that will take you to neighbor resorts as well. The dining options at your fingertips are plentiful, with multiple Disney Deluxe Resorts around the corner and some fantastic dining options at the Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin Hotels

    In order to gain access to Early Theme Park Entry and the Extended Evening Hours, you'll need to link your hotel reservations to your My Disney Experience account. To do so, log on to your account and click on "Hotel Reservations" followed by "Link a Reservation". Once here, enter your confirmation number and the last name on your reservation. This will require you to have a Disney-specific confirmation number to do so. If you book your stay directly through the Walt Disney World website, you will receive a confirmation number via email that should be the correct one. If you book directly through the Walt Disney World Swan Reserve or a third-party site, the initial confirmation number you receive may not be the one needed to link your reservation. If this is the case, you can always call the Swan Reserve to get the correct information required.

    Now that your hotel is linked to your My Disney Experience account, you'll be able to use your MagicBand or Admission Card for proof of where you are staying. For Early Entry, the Cast Member will scan your band or card upon entry at a designated area. Typically just one Guest from the group will need to do so for the entire party. For Extended Evening Hours, you'll need to scan for entry at each attraction. As a bonus, if you are attending Extended Evening Hours at EPCOT, you'll have an additional opportunity to join the Virtual Queue for Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind starting at 6 PM. This perk is only available to Guests eligible for the extended hours. 

    Patrick, I hope you have a magical time during your upcoming visit! 

    See ya real soon!
