The Extended Evening Hours are available to select Disney Resort hotel Guests. At this time, only those staying at the Deluxe Resorts and Deluxe Villas (as well as a few hotels that aren’t owned or operated by Disney) are eligible to stay in the theme parks for the extended hours at night.

In Disney’s initial announcement of the details for Early Theme Park Entry and Extended Evening Hours, the company shared the following:

In addition, with the kickoff of the 50th anniversary, guests staying at one of our Disney Deluxe or Deluxe Villa Resort hotels will also be able to enjoy extended evening hours on select nights in select theme parks. Extended evening hours will begin in early October with specific dates and parks to be shared at a later time, so please be sure to check back on DisneyWorld.com for the latest.
