Disney has made another big announcment this morning. This fall, a new “Early Theme Park Entry” system will begin for Disney Resort guests. Effective immediately, Extra Magic Hours have been retired.
Launching later this year, just in time for the 50th-anniversary celebration, Disney Resort hotel guests and guests of other select hotels will be able to enjoy more fun with 30-minute early entry to ANY theme park, EVERY day.
No matter what the day, guests at Disney Resort hotels will have an extra 30 mins to enjoy the parks alone. Extra Magic Hours benefit was suspended when Walt Disney World Resort reopened last summer, and will not return.
The new early theme park entry benefit is set up to control the spread of visitation across all four theme parks, while providing added flexibility by giving guests extra early park time on each day of their vacation and in the park of their choosing. Please note that guests need valid admission and a park reservation made via the Disney Park Pass system to enter a theme park.
