If you’ve been to Disney World in Orlando, then most likely you rode Disney’s Magical Express from the airport to your hotel, and vice versa. Well that will be going away for hotel bookings beginning Jan. 1, 2022. The change does not affect existing and new reservations made at Disney Resort hotels for the remainder of 2021.
And as Disney World continues to manage attendance with health and safety at the top of its list of importance, those Extra Magic Hours in the parks will also be disappearing. Disney realizes how much guests look forward to extra time in the parks, so later this year Disney Resort hotel guests and guests of other select hotels will be able to enjoy a 30-minute early entry to ANY of its theme parks, every day.
Here’s an official statement from the Park:
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.
