Extra Magic Hours haven’t been available at Disney World since it shut down back in 2020. Instead, Disney created new perks for hotel guests that aren’t quite the same as Extra Magic Hours but do allow guests more time in the parks.
Hotel guests on Disney property are able to get Early Theme Park Entry to all 4 theme parks, meaning they can go into the parks before they officially open. This includes guests at every Disney-owned hotel on property as well as Disney Springs Resort Area Hotels, Disney World’s on-property military hotel, and other local hotels. We have a full list of all the hotels eligible for Early Theme Park Entry here.

You’d be hard-pressed to find a Disney food and wine event that we’d turn down.
And no, we’re not talking about the EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival, either. We’re actually talking about a nearby event at The Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin! These hotels hosted several specialty food and beverage events recently and we were invited to stop by to review one!
