Disney Announces “Early Theme Park Entry” For Resort Guests and “Extended Evening Hours” for Deluxe Resort Guests

Here we go again. Disney is going to offer some extras and some of them are only for the people that pay the most.

Disney has announced that they will be rolling out a new early theme park entry “benefit” for Disney Resort Guests, and guests of other select hotels. This will start by the time the 50th Anniversary Celebration begins on October 1, 2021.

If you are a guest staying a a Disney Deluxe or Deluxe Villa Resort Hotel you will also get special “extended evening hours” on select night in select theme parks.  The “select” dates will be announced later but it will start in early October.

Here’s what the Disney Parks Blog posted:

Just in time for the start of this magical celebration, on Oct. 1, we will be rolling out a new early theme park entry benefit for Disney Resort hotel guests and guests of other select hotels, giving them the first chance to enjoy select attractions at EVERY theme park, EVERY day. ..Guests will need a valid ticket or pass and a theme park reservation for the same park on the same date for early theme park entry.

In addition, with the kickoff of the 50th anniversary, guests staying at one of our Disney Deluxe or Deluxe Villa Resort hotels will also be able to enjoy extended evening hours on select nights in select theme parks. Extended evening hours will begin in early October with specific dates and parks to be shared at a later time, so please be sure to check back on DisneyWorld.com for the latest.

Of course you will need a valid theme park admission and a park reservation for these offerings.

Please note that guests will need a valid ticket or pass and a theme park reservation for the same park on the same day to experience extended evening hours. Or, guests may visit with a ticket or Annual Pass with the Park Hopper option as long as they entered their first park where they made their reservation earlier in the day.

If you pay more you play more.
