FastPass, Extra Magic Hour Benefits Extended to Disney Partner Hotels

Beginning in 2018, Disney Springs area resort guests will have access to a number of additional perks and benefits.  

Disney Springs Sign

Guests at seven hotels in the Disney Springs area will soon gain access to benefits afforded by the MyDisneyExperience website and app including the ability to make FastPass+ reservations 60 days prior to arrival.  

Additional benefits available to these guests include participation in Extra Magic Hours at Walt Disney World theme parks, advance tee times at resort golf courses and the ability to book dining and dinner show reservations across Disney property.  

Hotels covered by this new offering include B Resort & Spa, Best Western Lake Buena Vista, DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Orlando, Hilton Orlando Buena Vista Palace, Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista, Holiday Inn Orlando and Wyndham Garden Lake Buena Vista.  The seven properties feature about 3500 hotel rooms and suites combined.  

This set of benefits including 60-day FastPass+ and Extra Magic Hours was previously offered exclusively to guests at Walt Disney World owned and operated resorts--including Disney Vacation Club properties--along with guests of the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort.

The benefits will be available from January 1 to December 31, 2018 and is subject to change without notice.

It sounds like Disney is definitely giving incentive to others to stay on Disney property as these resorts are all on Hotel Plaza just beyond Disney Springs. I remember staying at one of these resorts many years ago and they use to advertise that these hotels were on Disney property. I never really understood why the Swan/Dolphin resorts has this privilege and the Hotel Plaza resorts didn't.

BTW, none of theses resorts get free Magic bands as only guests Disney Resorts get them.

If I read the offer correctly, all of these Disney benefits (FastPasses, Extra Magic Hours, etc.) will be offered to guests staying at these Disney Partner Hotels only if they book a vacation package through the Walt Disney Travel Company. In other words, if a guest makes his or her own travel reservations they do not qualify for these extra perks.

Not a fan. Last time we were there we commented on how we felt Disney was allowing too many FP+s. And yet now that might increase?

That's what I read as well. So no Hilton Honors points if Disney makes the reservation at the Hilton resorts.

This probably has more to do with "rent" negotiations. Disney wants a big hike, giving this benefit in return.
