If you have an upcoming Disney Resort hotel reservation at Walt Disney World Resort, we’ve got some amazing news for you. Disney has announced that early admission to theme parks, a benefit for guests staying at participating Walt Disney World hotels, will be available sooner than originally announced.
Early Entry to Theme Parks allows visitors staying at Disney World to enter one of four theme parks (Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom) 30 minutes before the parks officially open theme for the day. While early entry to the theme parks is officially scheduled to begin on October 1 to coincide with the start of Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary, Disney has revealed that the equipment will actually open earlier for guests at participating Disney resorts and resorts. selected hotels.
Guests with upcoming Disney vacations are notified via email of this new perk which actually starts early! Disney today announced to guests that starting September 26 (this Sunday), a smooth opening of the new theme park early bird benefit will be available to guests at participating hotels. Upon arriving at the main entrance to one of the four theme parks, guests can look for signage that says “Early Entry for Participating Hotels” and from there they can enter the theme park.
If you have any questions about early admission to the theme park, we recommend that you go to the front desk of your Disney Resort hotel and speak with a member of the cast before your visit to the Disney park.
