View Full Version : Rides After 9pm Epcot
After returning from Afghanistan I was extremely disappointed to find that my family due to not being registered at the Disney Resort was not allowed to ride anymore rides after 9pm when the park was still open for 2 more hours. We talked to the management but they were uncooperative towards letting us ride even one more ride. I reminded them that it is not written anywhere that we could not ride rides while the park was open but they insisted it was a perk for resort guest after hours. I told them this was biased towards anyone who did not stay at a Disney Resort including all Florida residents of which I am one. A Florida resident does not buy get a hotel room when we live right here. Furthermore any guest from out of state that does not stay at the Disney resort cannot ride a ride after 9pm. Now when you get to the park it takes at least an entire day to try and see everything and in the summer time with lines being very long even the fast pass cannot get you thru all the lines for rides. My kids were disappointed and so was I. I was looking toward a funfilled day but it ended with us being disappointed in Disney when others just because they were Disney resort guest were still having fun. I must return to Afghanistan for anther 3 months prior to returning home again for 11 days but I will in the future go to a park that treats military members right with discounts etc. which Disney does not do.

Disney does give Military perks they have Shades Of Green- I know of no other theme park that has a resort only for military and a room rate based on rank.
The perk is for resort guests to fill the rooms. Go to Universal if you want but they also have Front of the line perks if you stay at their resorts AND they don't have a shades of green resort.

I'm sorry you were disappointed, but I have to disagree with what you wrote. Firstly, the park's general admission hours are printed on the daily schedule you pick up when you first enter. Those hours don't include Extra Magic Hours, so you're given notice in writing what time general admission ends. Secondly, not allowing non-Disney resort guests to participate in Extra Magic Hours is no more biased than not allowing people who don't buy tickets to events like the Pirate & Princess Party to stay in the park during those events. People pay extra for those events. And Disney resort guests pay more to stay on property, at least in part, for the privilege of participating in Extra Magic Hours. Just because you're a Florida resident doesn't mean that you can't pay extra for that privilege and stay on property, too. In fact, some Florida residents choose to do exactly that.
I am very sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your recent trip to Walt Disney World. If you would like to contact Walt Disney World in regards to your complaints, please direct your comments to:
