Early Theme Park Entry

Early Theme Park Entry gives Disney Resort hotel guests a magical head start with 30-minute early access to any of the four theme parks, every day. This means you can enjoy select attractions, experiences, and maybe even that coveted photo spot before the parks open to the general public. It’s a fantastic way to maximize your time and beat some of the crowds!

Extended Evening Hours

For those staying at Disney Deluxe Resorts and Deluxe Villas, the magic doesn’t end when the sun goes down.

Extended Evening Hours are available on select dates at select parks, allowing you extra time to enjoy the thrills and chills of your favorite rides and attractions.

Imagine having more time to explore the enchanting realms of Magic Kingdom or the futuristic landscapes of EPCOT under the stars. This benefit requires valid theme park admission and a Resort ID.

Please note: Disney World releases these dates approximately 60 days in advance only. Bummer for us early planners!
