According to reports from, two new hotels have now been added to the list of resorts that will allow hotel Guests to enter any of the Walt Disney World Resort Theme Parks 30 minutes before the general public opening hours through 2024.

Through 2024, Walt Disney World Resort will allow its Guests to enter Disney Parks early through its Early Theme Park Entry program. Disney provides a detailed description of the schedule below:

Guests of Disney Resort hotels can get a 30-minute jump on their Disney day with early theme park entry—available at all 4 Walt Disney World theme parks. This popular benefit will continue through 2024!

Early theme park entry gives you a head start in the parks, so you’ll have access to select attractions, shops and dining before regular hours. And you can enjoy this benefit on each day of your stay—in any park, subject to capacity.

For early theme park entry, you’ll need valid admission, a theme park reservation* and a Disney MagicBand or Disney MagicMobile pass.

The two newest hotels now added to the program through 2024 are Wyndham Garden Lake Buena Vista and Wyndham Lake Buena Vista, located at Disney Springs. These two Disney Springs Resort Area hotels have been added with other Disney Spring Resort locations that Walt Disney World Resort does not own and operate.
