    Hello, we'll be visiting Disney World mid October and will be staying onsite. Two questions about extended hours. Is there an extra 30 minutes every morning? And for the evening extended hours, how does that work with a park hopper pass? Thanks!

    Hello Pauline! I’m so glad that you are already aware of the new benefits being offered to Guests of the Walt Disney World Resort in honor of The World’s Most Magical Celebration! You are going to be ready to maximize your vacation time!

    The early theme park entry benefit will be available every morning, at every park, for every Guest staying at a hotel in the Disney Resorts Collection! This 30-minute early entry will allow you to enjoy the parks before the crowds set in for the day! This benefit will begin on Friday, October 1, 2021!

    The extended hours theme park benefit will be available beginning on Monday, October 4, 2021! Extended evening hours will be available for Guests staying at a deluxe hotel in the Disney Resorts Collection. When it begins, the benefit will be available at both EPCOT (Monday nights) and Magic Kingdom Park (Wednesday nights). Extended hours are currently posted through Wednesday, December 1st.

    Guests holding Park Hopper tickets can begin “hopping” (or bouncing if you’re a Tigger fan) to other parks beginning at 2:00 PM for each day that you hold a Park Hopper ticket!
