For 2018, the Walt Disney World Resort will extend some benefits that are currently only available to Disney Resort hotel Guests and the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotel Guests. Each Guest with a valid theme park admission staying at one of the Disney Springs Resort Area hotels (which are all designated Official Walt Disney World hotels) will be able to take advantage of "Extra Magic Hours" and will be able to make FastPass+ selections 60 days before their arrival date.
The Disney Spring Resort Area hotels include the following locations (most of them can be found on Hotel Plaza Blvd):
- B Resort & Spa;
- Best Western Lake Buena Vista Resort;
- DoubleTree Guest Suites by Hilton Orlando;
- Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista Palace;
- Hilton Orlando Resort Lake Buena Vista;
- Holiday Inn Orlando;
- Wyndham Lake Buena Vista;
- Wyndham Garden Lake Buena Vista.
Also, scheduled to begin Jan. 10, 2018, Guests at these Official Walt Disney World hotels, who have booked a package reservation for the hotel through a Walt Disney Travel Company package, will be able to link their hotel reservation on My Disney Experience, and with a linked, valid theme park ticket, these Guests can utilize a 60-day booking window for FastPass+ selections.
Guests staying at any of the Disney Resort hotels will continue to experience special features offered at a Disney Resort hotel, including legendary Guest service and unique theming, along with benefits like the Extra Magic Hours benefit, the ability to make FastPass+ selections up to 60-days prior to arrival, (both of these benefits require valid theme park admission), the convenience of MagicBands, complimentary transportation (motor coach, buses and ferry boats) around the Walt Disney World Resort and standard parking at Disney theme parks, Disney’s Magical Express service and the ability to purchase Disney dining plan packages. Those Guests staying in select Disney Resort hotels can also receive other services such as personalized vacation planning, merchandise delivery to their rooms, and easy access to Minnie Van service.
