Disney To Introduce "Early Theme Park Entry" To Replace Extra Magic Hours
News - WDW 11-Jan-2021
Disney has announced a new "Early Theme park Entry" system, which looks to replace "Extra Magic Hours" which was discounted due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Later in 2021, Disney Resort Hotel guests will be able to enter the ANY park on ANY day 30 minutes early. No extra evening hours appear to be announced at this time. However, it's not clear if the attractions will be open in the 30 minute window, or whether it's just the ability to queue up early for one.
Early Theme Park Entry: We know how much guests enjoy extra park time, so coming later this year as part of our 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. It’ll be a great way to get a jump start on your Disney day, no matter the day! As a reminder, the Extra Magic Hours benefit was suspended when Walt Disney World Resort reopened last summer, and as we continue to manage attendance with health and safety top of mind, Extra Magic Hours will not return. The new early theme park entry benefit helps us better spread 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.
