    Online it says that there are advantages like early and late hours, if you stay in "select" WDW Disney Resorts. Which are those? Can you make reservations earlier that 180 days when staying at these?

    Hi Linda,

    A few months until your magical vacation begins, but don't worry. You'll see how time goes lightning fast and you'll be having fun in no time.

    So many Disney Resort Hotel Benefits. One of them is access to Extra Magic Hour. Every day, one of the four Theme Parks opens one hour early or closes two hours later, exclusively for Guests staying at Select Disney Resort Hotels. This includes all Value, Moderate, Deluxe, and Deluxe Villas, The Campsites at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort, Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel, and Walt Disney World Swan Hotel.

    Another of the many benefits is that you may make advanced dining reservations 180 days before your Check-In but for your entire stay, up to ten days. This is sometimes referred to 180+10, which means that if you stay for 10 days, the reservations for that last day could be made 190 days in advance. Awesome, right? Oh, and how? Easiest way is with the My Disney Experience mobile app.

    One last tip: Guest can make FastPass+ reservations for up to three of your favorite attractions 30 days in advance, however by staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you can make them 60 days in advance of your Check-In and for your entire stay, up to ten days, based on the length of your tickets.
