Disney’s Early Theme Park Entry Is Changing for One Day Only

If visiting Walt Disney World Resort or Disneyland Resort soon, you’ll want to take note that Disney is changing its Early Theme Park Entry arrival window for one day only.

Believe it or not, The Walt Disney Company’s massive streaming network, Disney+, is about to turn three years old since its launch in 2019. Disney is rolling out a special celebration within its Parks for Disney+ subscribers and fans to enjoy on its dedicated Disney+ Day, September 8.

This year’s Disney+ Day celebration is on Thursday, September 8, 2022. Disney will “plus up” its Parks just like last year, with Disney Park icons (such as Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom Park or Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland Park) being projected with blue colors, special photo ops, characters, Disney foodie bites, and more.

If visiting on September 8, be aware that Disney’s Early Theme Park Entry is changing. With Extra Magic Hour gone, Early Theme Park Entry allows Disney Resort Hotel Guests to enter any of the Disney Parks at Disneyland or Walt Disney World 30 minutes before the Park opens to the general public. This is a daily perk for Disney Resort Guests.

But, with September 8 being Disney+ Day, Disney is now allowing Disney+ subscribers to enjoy the perk by announcing:

“Mornings at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and Disneyland Resort in California will be “plussed” up with early entry pixie dust! Disney+ subscribers and their travel party with valid admission and reservations are once again invited to enter the theme parks at Disneyland Resort* and Walt Disney World Resort 30 minutes before regular park opening.”

Staying at a Disney Hotel at this time? No worries, as a Resort Guest, you are getting an even BIGGER benefit than Disney+ subscribers will the ability to experience Early Park Entry 60 minutes before the regular Park hours:

“We’re also excited to share that in celebration of Disney+ Day, on Sept. 8 only, guests staying in select Walt Disney World Resort Hotels and Hotels of the Disneyland Resort (with valid admission and a reservation) will have the opportunity to enter 60 minutes before regular park open at any Walt Disney World or Disneyland Resort theme parks.”
