Disney Dining and Extra Magic Hours are Coming Back...In A Way

Good morning! I know everyone is excited about Disney Dining coming's just a question of...When? That's right, Disney has hinted at the return of Disney Dining but they have said that they, "are not yet ready to share an update on timing..." So, it looks like Dining will be back, but we all just need to sit back a wait a little bit longer for more information.

Have you heard about the new early theme park entry benefit for Disney Resort Hotel guests and guests of other select hotels? Starting on October 1, 2021, to coincide with the 50th Anniversary celebrations, guests of these resorts will be among the first each day to see the dazzling decorations and EARidescent excitement! Guests will need a valid ticket or pass and a theme park reservation for access.

Also....guests staying in Disney's Deluxe or Deluxe Villa Resort hotels will also be able to enjoy extended evening hours on select nights in select parks. This will begin in early October with specific dates and parks to be shared at a later time. Of course, Guests will need a valid ticket or pass and a theme park reservation for the same park on the same day. Or, guests may visit with a ticket or Annual Pass with the Park Hopper Option, as long as you have entered the first park where you made your reservation earlier in the day. Phew! So...Early Magic Hours for all...and Extended Evening Hours for Deluxe or Deluxe Villa guests are coming back! What do you think!? 🤔
