Early entry to Walt Disney World theme park for resort hotel guests will continue beyond this year

Disney confirmed today that the theme park early entry benefit for its resort hotel guests will continue through 2023.

Early Theme Park Entry was introduced with the start of Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary in October 2021 and replaced the former Morning Extra Magic Hours.

Disney has yet to comment on the continuation of extended evening hours.

The Theme Park Early Entry Benefit is available to all Walt Disney World Resort Hotel guests and guests of other select hotels each day at each park, and provides 30 minutes of additional time.
