According to an email sent to Disney World Resort guests, Disney World’s Early Theme Park Entry will soft open on September 26, before its official October 1 debut. As we shared earlier, Disney World will be offering Early Theme Park Entry to all resort guests at all four theme parks every day during the WDW 50th Anniversary Celebration. WDW Resort guests and guests at participating Good Neighbor Hotels will get access to each park 30 minutes before the regular opening time. Each park will feature a limited lineup of attractions for the extra half hour. Deluxe Resorts will also be getting access to extra hours in the evening, although that has not been announced to be starting early.

Starting Sunday, guests who qualify can enter each park by finding the “Early Entry for Participating Hotels” sign.
