    Its nice to see that they are finally starting to implement some perks for staying at a DL hotel. WDW is a no brainer with perks like MAgical express, park/resort transportation, extra magic hrs, etc. And there are several different cost levels. At DL the hotels are so expensive and it's hard to justify when there are so many other hotels surrounding the park that are a third of the cost and IMO just as nice. Plus many offer free parking, wifi, breakfast, etc. The extra magic hour won't sway me to spending 300+ a night but it's a start. It would be nice to see free transportation from airport to hotel like they do at WDW. Not just for the cost but also the piece of mind of being in a Disney owner and operated transportation service and not likely to be scammed or "taken for a ride". When we were planning our trip last year we saw a lot of reviews that warned about rogue transportation services so we were extra careful.

    It is funny, we always plan on getting up early for the early entry....but those beds at the VGC are so comfortable, it's hard to get up
    Even the baby slept in

    But I guess for the Radiator Springs we will have to do it.

    I'm looking forward to the extra park time in September! Now if only it were in the evening instead of the morning nice I'm a night owl... But I'll take what I can get, and with the 3 hours time change from home it should all work out.

    Is this a permanent on property perk? Or does it expire in September like the AP early entry?

    While it would be nice if the Disneyland Express shuttles were free for Disney Hotel guests, Disney's Magical Express is not owned or operated by Disney but by Mears Transportation. Although it is very nice to be greeted and checked in by a Disney CM right at the airport.

    Loving the split schedule between AP holders and resort guests. Hopefully they keep it.
