Early Park Entry & Extended Evening Hours For Deluxe Resort Guests Continuing Through 2024


Disney has announce that the Early Park Entry that is offered to Disney Resort hotel guests, as well as the Extended Evening Hours that are offered to guests staying at Disney Deluxe Resorts and Deluxe Villas, will continue throughout the 2024 calendar year!

What Is Early Theme Park Entry?

Early Theme Park Entry allows select guests to enter their chosen theme park at 30 minutes earlier than its scheduled opening time. This means that you can be among the first to experience a select number of attractions that Walt Disney World has to offer. Early Theme Park Entry is available to guests with a valid theme park ticket or annual pass, a Park Pass Reservation for their desired theme park, and one additional qualifying requirement that we will cover in the following section. So if you’re looking for an extra edge in getting your day started off right, Early Theme Park Entry is definitely the way to go!

If you’d like to learn everything there is to know about Early Theme Park Entry including who’s eligible, what attractions are available, and get advanced strategies to make the most of your extra time in the theme parks you can read our in-depth article here: Early Theme Park Entry At Walt Disney World: Everything You Need To Know.

What Are Extended Evening Hours?

Extended Evening Hours at Walt Disney World refer to the additional operating time that Disney’s theme parks are open beyond their regular schedule. During extended evening hours, select attractions, restaurants, and shops remain open, offering guests more time to experience the magic of the theme parks. These extended hours are reserved for guests staying in Disney World’s Deluxe Resorts, which all of the Disney Vacation Club resorts are considered Deluxe Resorts.

Also, with the introduction of the recent virtual queues for Disney’s latest attractions, guests who qualify for extended evening hours have been able to join an additional virtual queue at 6 p.m., which greatly increases their chances of being able to experience Disney’s newest attractions.

Continuing to provide extended park time to Disney Resort hotel guests: For those planning to stay at a Disney Resort hotel, we will continue to offer the popular early theme park entry for visits through 2024 – every day, across all four theme parks. This great benefit gives you a jump start on your day. For those staying at Disney Deluxe Resorts and Deluxe Villas, we’ll also be continuing to offer extended evening hours on select dates at select parks through 2024. Early theme park entry and extended evening hours require valid theme park admission and a Resort ID.
