On September 8, Walt Disney World and Disneyland will be open to Disney+ subscribers and their travel party 30 minutes before the usual opening time of the park. Guests staying at select Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort hotels will be able to enter the park one hour before parks open.

All you need to enter is a valid admission, reservations and proof of your Disney+ subscription. The Disney Parks Blog say that showing your connected home screen on the Disney+ app on your phone will do. So make sure you have the app installed on your phone and that you are logged in before you’re coming!
