Disney Springs hotels extend Disney World park benefits to guests

September 5, 2018, 12:54 PM · The Disney Springs Resort Area Hotels are extending their offer of Walt Disney World in-park benefits to their guests through all of 2019.

Guests who are booked into the seven Disney Springs Resort Area hotels and who have valid Disney World park admission will be able to book Fastpass attraction reservations 60 days in advance of their visit, just like guests booked into Disney's own on-site hotels. In addition, the Disney Springs hotel guests will continue to be able to get into the parks during scheduled Extra Magic Hours.

For many fans, those are the most important benefits to staying on-site at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, so having seven additional options to consider when booking a Disney World vacation provides extra variety and flexibility. The seven Disney Springs Area Hotels are:

The hotels can be booked via disneyspringshotels.com, as well as through their brand websites and some third-party services. Disney's own hotels also offer free MagicBands and the Disney's Magical Express bus service to and from the Orlando airport, if you want and apples-to-apples comparison of benefits. Both the Disney and Disney Springs hotels offer transportation to and from the parks.

The Disney Springs Area Hotels had been offering the extended Fastpass booking window and Extra Magic Hours benefit for stays through December 31, 2018 and now have extended the offer of those benefits through the end of 2019.

News like this makes me SO GLAD I'm no longer an Orlando AP holder trying to wrangle the odd Fast Pass at the WDW parks.

Oh good even less chance of getting a fast pass for Slinky Dog and Flights of Passage

Doubletree is missing, Best Western is listed twice.

Great hotel choices for those that love to visit other places in the world. Take advantage of the chain hotel perks while still getting the benefit of the Disney perks.

Now if only they would offer free park parking as Disney-owned hotels do. Especially since most/all these resorts charge for parking now.

"Now if only they would offer free park parking as Disney-owned hotels do."

Parking is not technically "free" since resort guests now pay a fee to park their vehicles at the resorts. While on-site resort guests do no have to pay at the booths at each of the theme parks, they are still paying for parking through their individual on-site resort parking fees.
