    Is there an advantage to booking a Good Neighbor hotel through Disney versus booking it with the hotel directly? Do you have to book through Disney and purchase your "3 day or more" tickets through Disney to get the Magic Morning?

    Greetings Abbey!

    Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I can't wait for you to experience the magic of a Disneyland Resort Vacation! There are many affordable Good Neighbor Hotels in close proximity to the parks and Downtown Disney District. You may book these independently or through a Disneyland Vacation Package in combination with your park tickets. I would love to tell you some of the benefits of booking a Walt Disney Travel Company Vacation Package. Apart from the convenience of these packages, you also get the following: A Collectible Disneyland Resort souvenir Park ticket (one per person), A Complimentary 5x7 Attraction Photo, 4 wallet-sized prints, plus a digital download by PhotoPass, ESPN Zone Voucher (one per package), Magical Extra Savings Card (one per package), Walt Disney Travel Company Collectible Pin & Lanyard (one per person), and a Walt Disney Travel Company Luggage Tag (one per person).

    Keep in mind that whether you purchase your 3+ day park tickets through a package or separately from your hotel in advance, you still are entitled to one Magic Morning. This allows one hour of early admission to select attractions on certain days at Disneyland Park.

    If you have any more questions as your trip approaches, please don't hesitate to stop by again! Have a Zip-a-dee-doo-dah Day!
