    Are Walt Disney Swan and Walt Disney Dolphin included in the new early entry morning hours starting October 1st?

    Hi there, Erin!

    I was super excited to hEAR about a brand new benefit offered to guests of Walt Disney World Swan and Walt Disney World Dolphin hotels beginning October 1 - Early Theme Park Entry and Extended Evening Hours! This benefit will begin in conjunction with The World's Most Magical Celebration, honoring Walt Disney World Resort's 50th Anniversary. Guests of the all-new Walt Disney World Swan Reserve will also be able to take advantage of this perk when the gorgeous hotel opens later this summer. 

    With Early Theme Park Entry, guests of all Disney Resorts Collection hotels will be able to get a head start on the magic with 30-minute early entry to Magic Kingdom Park, Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios, or Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park each and every day of their vacation. Extended Evening Hours will be offered on select nights at select theme parks, with after-hours access to popular attractions, shopping, and dining. (Specific dates and theme parks for Extended Evening Hours will be shared at a later time.) 

    To gain entrance to the parks for Early Morning Entry, Guests will need a valid Resort ID, valid admission, and a Disney Park Pass reservation for the same park on the same day. (For Extended Evening Hours, Guests may present an Annual Pass or theme park ticket with the Park Hopper Option, provided it was used to enter a park with a Park Pass reservation earlier that day.)

    I hope this helps with your plans and preparations for an upcoming trip. Here at planDisney, we are Guests, just like you, who love to share tips and advice we've gathered from our own Walt Disney World Resort vacations to help you add a bit of extra magic to yours. Please come back and visit us here if you have more questions before your next visit!
