For the past two years, those who stay at one of the seven Disney Springs Resort area hotels have been able to enjoy both Extra Magic Hours benefits, as well as the ability to make FastPass+ reservations up to 60 days in advance. And good news! These benefits will continue to be offered at these hotels through 2020.

These hotel locations are conveniently located near Disney Springs, many within easy walking distance. The Disney Springs Resort area hotels include B Resort & Spa, Best Western Lake Buena Vista, DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Orlando – Disney Springs Area, Hilton Orlando Buena Vista Palace, Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista, Holiday Inn Orlando – Disney Springs Area, and Wyndham Garden Lake Buena Vista.

For 2020, Guests who have valid theme park admission, will be able to enjoy Extra Magic Hours benefit which enables Guests to experience extra time in one of the Walt Disney World Theme Parks each day, either before park opening or after official park close.

In addition, Guests staying at these hotels will continue to be able to use the 60-Day FastPass+ benefit which provides the ability to reserve access to select attractions, shows and more, up to 60 days before arriving. Guests at these hotels who have a valid theme park ticket or confirmation number and a hotel reservation number, are able to link their hotel reservation at MyDisneyExperience.com. Then they will be able to make FastPass+ reservations for their vacation up to 60 days in advance.

These hotel benefits are also available now for those looking to book travel dates for 2020, and these hotels can be a great option for those who are looking to save a little money.

    If only all of the reservations could link to MDE. I’ve made 7 reservations at Best Western Lake Buena Vista since June, 2019. 6 of them were accepted by the Disney link system within a few hours. The first one I made (June 18, 2019) still can’t be linked. Disney escalated the issue on June 25, and has still not been able to get it linked despite contacting BW system directly back in June (just talked to them again this morning). My FPP 60 days starts Sunday, Oct 13. Just be aware. I’ve read of one other person who reported the same. Disney will set up the FPP’s; however, without the linkage, one cannot make any changes to them without calling Disney again. On the other hand, we loved staying at this resort. Huge rooms and mostly very helpful staff.

    So, what are the advantages to staying on property? At a Disney owned resort? Why am I paying so much more?

      The idea (Disney theming in room, on property, food); proximity if you stay at a deluxe resort; AND, a reservation that definitely will link to MDE. Transportation may be a little more frequent/convenient than from Disney Springs resorts. Opportunity for Disney dining plan free or paid.

      Pam, I forgot to mention Magical Express if you fly into/out of MCO. Some times, it doesn’t cost so much more. It depends on availability. A lot if the WDW Disney Springs resorts have high resort fees AND high parking fees (as high or higher than Disney).
