    I have an upcoming Disney Vacation and will be staying at a Disney Resort Hotel. Am I eligible to participate in extended theme park hours on the day that I check out of my room?

    Hi Linda,

    Welcome to planDisney! I hope you're counting down the days until your visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth is here! Whoo hoo!

    I'm happy to share that you'll be considered a Guest of your Disney Resorts Collection hotel for the length of your stay, including the entire days of your check-in and check-out. Please feel free to take advantage of all of the incredible amenities and all of the perks! If you'd like to enjoy a swim before the official check-in time or after the official check-out time, please feel free! (Bell Services will be happy to hold your bags for you if need be!) And yes, you'll be able to enjoy some extra time in the parks on those days, too. All Disney Resort hotel Guests can enjoy early theme park entry every single morning at every single park, and if you're staying at a Disney Deluxe Resort, Disney Deluxe Villa Resort, Walt Disney World Swan Hotel, Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel, Walt Disney World Swan Reserve, or Shades of Green on Walt Disney World, you'll also be able to enjoy extended evening theme park hours a few nights a week. Please feel free to squeeze every ounce of magic and fun out of your last day and take advantage of those, even if they fall on the day of your check-out!

    Thanks so much for bringing your question to us here at planDisney, Linda, and please let us know if we can help with anything else. I hope you have a truly magical vacation sometime soon!
