VIDEO REPLAY of our LIVE discussion about the announcements made by Disney about Disney’s Magical Express and Extra Magic Hours
Today, it was announced on the Disney Parks Blog that, as they plan for the future, they are looking at how needs and preferences are changing across the travel industry, particularly in the way people want to get places faster, at their convenience.
I share my thoughts, as well as some of the reasons and benefits for Guests that will come from these changes.
Three new announcements were made on the Disney Parks Blog:
- End of Disney’s Magical Express: When Disney Resort hotel bookings open for stays in 2022, Disney will no longer offer Disney’s Magical Express service for airport transportation, starting with arrivals Jan. 1, 2022. They will continue to operate the service for new and existing reservations made at Disney Resort hotels for arrivals throughout 2021. Additionally, complimentary transportation options – such as buses, monorails and Disney Skyliner – will continue to be available within Walt Disney World Resort for Disney Resort hotel guests, including to and from all four theme parks.
- Early Theme Park Entry: Coming later this year as part of Walt Disney World’s 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. As a reminder, the Extra Magic Hours benefit was suspended when Walt Disney World Resort reopened last summer, and as Disney continues to manage attendance with health and safety top of mind, Extra Magic Hours will not return.
- Special Vacation Offer: For those of you ready to start planning your next vacation, we just released a special new offer! Get two extra days added to your ticket when you buy a 4-night/3-day room and ticket package at select Disney Resort hotels for arrivals most nights Jan. 8 through Sept. 25, 2021.
