One huge perk has been missing for guests staying at Disney World resorts.
That perk is Extra Magic Hours, which allows Disney World resort guests to get extra time in the parks, both in the mornings and evenings. However, Disney recently announced that a NEW offering will replace Extra Magic Hours. This would allow select resort guests to get early theme park entry, while others can get extended evening hours. We’ve already seen a list of which hotels qualify for early entry and which hotels qualify for extended hours, but we now have two more hotels to add to that list.
We have confirmed that guests staying at both the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resorts will receive early entry AND extended evening hours. And this also applies to the Walt Disney World Swan Reserve Hotel, too, which opens this summer.
Early entry begins for Disney World hotel guests on October 1st. Extended Evening Hours will also begin in early October. For extended evening hours, guests will need a valid resort ID, valid admission, and a park pass reservation for the same park on the same day for this perk (or a ticket or annual pass with the park hopper option, provided the park with the park pass reservation was already entered earlier that day). For early entry, guests will need valid admission, a park reservation, and Resort ID.
Disney has not yet shared further details, but we’ll keep you updated as we learn more!
