The Disney Parks Blog also confirmed that the resort’s popular early entry benefit for resort Guests visiting Disney theme parks will continue through the end of 2023, beyond the 50th-anniversary celebration. Using this special resort-exclusive perk, Guests can take advantage of earlier access to all four Walt Disney World theme parks, allowing them to experience favorite attractions with little to no wait times before the parks open to day Guests.

Disney also recently announced that Genie+ will be removed from pre-purchase options when you book a Disney vacation beginning on June 8. As such, all 2023 visits to Walt Disney World theme parks will offer Genie+ only as a same-day purchase through the My Disney Experience app. Park Hoppers and Memory Maker will remain available as possible add-ons for 2023 vacation packages.
