Disney World Extends Extra Park Time for Deluxe Resort Hotel Guests

Disney Extended Evening Hours

It appears that Disney World’s special Theme Park access for Deluxe Resort Hotel Guests will continue after the 50th Anniversary Celebration comes to an end.

According to Theme Park insider Scott Gustin,

“Walt Disney World confirms the extended evening theme park hours benefit for eligible deluxe hotel guests will continue throughout all of 2023.”

Of the many things that changed at The Walt Disney World Resort after the pandemic reopening, Extra Magic Hours’ absence was one of the most noticeable. As the Theme Parks slowly got back to normal, Disney World Resort, Hotel Guests were given only 30 minutes of Early Theme Park Access.

In honor of Disney World’s 50th Anniversary Celebration, Guests of Disney World’s Deluxe Resort Hotels and Deluxe Villas were–and still are–treated to “Extra Evening Hours”: An extra two hours in either Magic Kingdom Park or EPCOT on select nights. It was thought that this benefit would end with the 50th Anniversary in March, but now Disney has confirmed that this special perk will be extended through the entirety of next year.
