Earlier this year, Disney announced that Extra Magic Hours would not be returning, and in its place Early Theme Park Entry would grant Guests early access to the theme parks. At the time, the announcement was vague, but we now have more details.

Beginning October 1, Disney will be rolling out a new early theme park entry benefit for Disney Resort hotel guests and guests of other select hotels, giving them the first chance to enjoy select attractions at EVERY theme park, EVERY day.

That means if you are staying at a Disney hotel or other hotel like Swan and Dolphin or Shades of Green, you will be able to enter the park before anyone else!

Disney has just added Rise of the Resistance to the list of attractions that will be open during Early Theme Park Entry. It officially moved to a standby line with no virtual queue process.

You can check out photos of the crowds that flocked to the park in comparison to the wait times Kenny experience HERE.

Rise of the Resistance will be open during Early Theme Park Entry.

Considering wait times for Rise climbed up to 220 minutes, this would be a great perk of staying onsite!
