    Just an FYI - saw on Facebook that people staying at the good neighbor hotels are given cards to allow them entrance into EMH but seems like the places are spotty with mentioning it - so remember to ask if you are staying there

    Evening EMH are only 2 hours now and they extend it to more people. Unless they plan to extend EMH back to 4 hours post park closing, I'm not a fan of this... then again thanks to the convict room checks for on property, still being able to get EMH and not be subject to everyday harassment by CM's while we nap in the afternoons might bring me to those hotels.

    Honestly though, VRBO / AIRbnb get virtually all my business nowadays. 5 times the room and half the cost.

    If you book through a 3rd party site like Expedia, are you still eligible for this? Can you link your tickets and reservation on MDE and then still get the 60 day FP+ booking?

    When you stay at a hotel on property, I look at the benefit of advance bookings as a perk of the higher price tag. I agree, what justifies a higher price tag if I can get the same benefits at a cheaper hotel?

    Well, there is still Magical Express, the Disney transportation to and from your hotel, getting an included Magic Band, being in the "Disney bubble", the theming (at least at some resorts) ...

    ... but yeah, if the reason you stay on site is really the 60 days then nothing really vs these hotels (I see this more as Disney "making" more value rooms without having to build more hotels knowing they need more rooms come Star Wars Land, etc.)

    We usually drive and have magic bands. Theming is nice but not worth the Disney price nice. If we stay near WDW in the future, I plan to check this out but we would probably only stay for 3 or 4 nights. I'm curious to see what this does to pricing in that area.
