There’s a BIG perk in store for Disney World Resort guests this fall.
Early Theme Park Entry will be introduced on October 1st to allow those staying at Disney World hotels to enter the theme parks BEFORE other guests. The new perk is replacing Extra Magic Hours, and now we’re looking into which resorts will be included.
According to the Shades of Green Resort Facebook page, Shades of Green guests WILL have access to Early Theme Park Entry when it begins on October 1st.
Shades of Green is an Armed Forces Recreation Center and the official Disney World military resort located in the Magic Kingdom area. It is not owned by Disney, so we weren’t sure whether the perk would extend to guests at this hotel.
Early Theme Park Entry gives eligible guests entry into the park of their choosing 30 minutes prior to the posted opening. Disney Park Passes WILL be required for the park you’re entering early.
Disney recently released a list of hotels that will include Early Theme Park Entry. The list includes several hotels in the Disney Springs area.
In addition to Early Theme Park Entry, Disney will be offering Extended Evening Hours for select Disney World resorts. This list is more selective and only features Disney Deluxe or Disney Deluxe Villa hotels.
So far, Disney has not announced which days, and how much extra time these guests will get in the parks. Select attractions, merchandise, and food and beverage locations will be available during Extended Evening Hours.
We’ll be keeping an eye out for more news about Early Theme Park Entry and Extended Evening Hours, so check back with DFB for all the latest news!
