There is still time to make plans to experience the special events at the Walt Disney World Resort in Central Florida this summer and fall, such as the 2018 Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, Eat to the Beat Concert Series at Epcot, and Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom Park.It also is a great time to take in the terrific all-new 11-acre Toy Story Land, which just opened in June at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, where guests “shrink” to the size of a toy to explore the adventure and fun of Andy’s backyard and can enjoy such new attractions as the Slinky Dog Dash family coaster and Alien Swirling Saucers.
A great way to experience these events and new offerings is by taking advantage of the special “Magic of Fall” room rates that are being offered by the seven Disney Springs Resort Area Hotels for stays from August 20-October 31, 2018.
In addition to the very appealing rates, guests staying at these hotels also enjoy the Extra Magic Hours benefit, and the FastPass+ benefit at the Walt Disney World Theme Parks up to 60 days prior to your arrival, which guests staying at these seven Official Walt Disney World Hotels receive throughout 2018. With valid theme park admission, the Extra Magic Hours benefit enables guests to experience extra time in at least one of the Walt Disney World Theme Parks each day, either before it opens or after it closes. This provides the opportunity to enjoy select attractions, including the new offerings at Toy Story Land and the popular attractions at the other three theme parks, such as Pandora – The World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Guests can view the Extra Magic Hours calendar at disneyworld.com/parkhours or request the printed Times Guide, available in each hotel’s lobby.
Plus, guests staying at the seven hotels are also able to link their hotel reservation on MyDisneyExperience.com, and with a linked, valid theme park ticket, you have the ability to makeFastPass+ selections up to 60 days prior to arrival.
