CONFIRMED: 22 Disney World Hotels Will Offer Early Entry in 2025

One of the biggest advantages of staying at a Disney World hotel is not the ambiance of Disney magic (although that is pretty amazing), but the free perks that come along with the reservation!

Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort

You get free transportation almost anywhere around Disney property (can’t go from Disney Springs to the parks though), but you also get Early Entry into the four parks on any given day! If you’re heading to Disney World in 2025, these are the hotels that will give you Early Entry perks.

However, things can change between now and the start of 2025, since we have 9 more months of 2024 to get through, but at this time, since bookings are available for 2025, we can assume that Disney would have made a note about these hotels choosing to not offer Early Entry in 2025 by now.

Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort

We’ll be sure to keep this post updated if things change. The full list of Disney World Hotels that should be offering Early Entry in 2025 is:

Many of these Good Neighbor Hotel offer fantastic deals for staying close to the parks on a budget, but we’d like to warn you against using their free transportation to and from the parks. It’s not Disney’s transportation, and sometimes it can be much slower and cause you to miss certain events like rope drop, dining reservations, and more.

Here’s why people AREN’T staying at Disney World Hotels and are choosing Good Neighbor Hotels instead!
