I'm going to guess that it only lasts during 2018.
My guess is that Disney is being compensated by the good neighbor hotels for this perk. If they are generating revenue, why would they stop it? My first thought was, why would people pay the extra money (since rooms are generally more affordable at this hotels) to stay in the Disney resort hotels. Then I realized, Disney will still fill those resorts, so why not make even more money by selling the perks to those hotels.
It does bother me that it means more people booking FP at the 60 day mark and more people at EMH, but our complaints will likely not get it changed by Disney. I'm just surprised it took them this long to implement it. It's truly a win/win for Disney and those hotels. The guests at those hotels might win in a sense, but they will be granted access to more and more crowded EMH.
Oops. This is where I would normally say something witty to cover up this mistake, but I got nothing.
It was rumored back in October. It was confirmed this month
And in the past other resorts had it. We had a few stays at Hotel Royal Plaza that had the early entry perks.Hilton Lake Buena Vista even offered EMH benefits to guests up until sometime in 2015.
You're paying a premium for the safety that comes with knowing a housekeeper can walk in on you at any moment because "DND" signs are no longer included in the cheap you price you pay for a disney resortIt makes me angry. Why am I then paying a premium for a Disney resort? Now that they are taking away much of the room theming, you may as well stay in a Disney Springs resort.
