Disney Parks To Celebrate Disney Plus Day On September 8, 2022



Disney Plus Sign at Disney's Hollywood Studios

If you have Disney Plus, you already know that there are a lot of perks to being a subscriber to Disney’s streaming service. In addition to having access to Disney’s vast library of films and TV shows, subscribers are treated to new releases on the service each month. In September, there will be even more benefits for Disney+ subscribers on Disney Plus Day 2022.

Disney Plus Day is a celebration of the service and its subscribers through special offerings in Disney’s parks. On September 8th, those who have Disney+ and their travel party will be able to enter the parks at Walt Disney World and Disneyland Park 30 minutes before park open. To take advantage of this extra time in the park, you and everyone in your group will need to have valid admission and a park reservation. Subscribers staying at a Disney resort on Disney Plus Day will be able to enter the parks 60 minutes early.
