    If you’re staying at a Holiday Inn that’s in Orlando, but it’s not at Disney Springs, do you get early access to the parks?

    Welcome to planDisney, Dorothy.

    I'm so glad you stopped by with your question. It's my pleasure to play a small part in helping you plan your next Disney adventure. 

    You've asked a great question, Dorothy. Early Theme Park Entry is one of the many benefits given to all Guests staying at Disney Resorts Collection hotels. It's one of the main reasons I try to stay on property. However, what many people don't know is that there are also several hotels not owned by Disney that offer this benefit. Here's a list of them (subject to change):

    • Walt Disney World Swan Hotel
    • Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel
    • Walt Disney World Swan Reserve
    • Wyndham Garden Lake Buena Vista Disney Springs Resort Area
    • Wyndham Lake Buena Vista Disney Springs Resort Area 
    • DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Orlando – Disney Springs Area
    • Drury Plaza Hotel Orlando - Disney Springs Area
    • Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort
    • Hilton Orlando Buena Vista Palace – Disney Springs Area
    • Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista - Disney Springs Area
    • Holiday Inn Orlando - Disney Springs Area
    • Shades of Green at Walt Disney World
    • Signia by Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek
    • Waldorf Astoria Orlando 
    • B Resort & Spa - Disney Springs Resort Area
    As you can see, the only Holiday Inn that currently offers their guests Early Theme Park Entry is the one located in the Disney Springs area. I'm sorry if that's disappointing, Dorothy. If you haven't booked yet, maybe you could check out one of the amazing Disney Resorts Collection hotels. There are plenty of helpful Pocket Guides on the planDisney website to help you choose which hotel would suit your needs most. However, if you've already booked your hotel, Hakuna Matata! You'll still have a fantastic time, Dorothy. In fact, if you get to the theme park for opening, and you utilize Disney Genie+ and Individual Lighting Lanes, I trust you'll be able to experience a ton of attractions during your Disney day.

    I hope that's helpful, Dorothy. See ya real soon!
