Plan A Disney VacationTravel

Extra Magic Hours For 3 Hilton Orlando Resorts

Disney Springs area Hilton and Doubletree Resorts

I dont know about you, but my family LOVES the Hilton Hotel chains. I belong to the Hilton Honors Program and when we travel, I always book our stays at one of the Hilton hotels or one of their family of hotels. For a quick night on the road, sometimes we duck into a Hampton Inn and we receive 5-Star treatment at really great prices. When we are going to a destination, I will book either a Hilton room or one at the Doubletree, depending what is available where we are going. I can always trust that a Hilton Hotel will be of high quality standards no matter which one we are going to. The kids really enjoy picking out our room the day before we arrive. Yes, you get an email asking if you would like to go ahead and check-in and pick your room.  So when you arrive check-in is a breeze with no surprises.
I just received an email from Hilton Resorts in Orlando announcing that they now have access to the Walt Disney World Theme Park Extra Magic Hours.  I already knew that the Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista Disney Springs, Hilton Orlando Buena Vista Palace Disney Springs Area, and Doubletree Suites by Hilton Orlando Disney Springs Area are designated as Official Walt Disney World hotels. This means that you get free transportation to all the parks. They have onsite theme park ticket sales at Guest Services and an onsite store with Disney Merchandise.  This exciting new benefit will start January 1, 2018.
If you've never used Extra Magic Hours, here's a little bit about what a great amenity they are. Each day one of the Disney Parks will either open an hour earlier or stay open an hour after the park closes for Disney Resort guests only.  This is really helpful if you want to get ahead of the crowd for some of the rides and meet-n-greets. This also gives you a jump on getting those hard-t0-get Fastpasses for your favorite rides.  By allowing to stay an hour later than regular park guests, you get to take advantage of shorter lines for rides and shows. You can get a calendar of which park is offering the Extra Magic Hours for  what day and whether it is before opening or after closing so you can plan your days accordingly.  So, you can see what a big bonus this is for the Hilton guests.
Disney Springs was formerly Downtown Disney and is an entertainment shopping dining district with world-class restaurants, a theater, bowling alley, and shopping with the largest Disney Store on the planet.
We always add an extra day or two to our Disney World vacations just to take a break from the parks and spend some time at Disney Springs.  Now I will be adding those extra days to check into one of these awesome Hilton Hotels and be closer to Disney Springs and still get Disney Resort perks!

Watch all three of these You Tube videos so you can see what a great place any of these would be on your Disney or Florida vacation.
