    Hi again! What rides are open in DL and DCA during the Extra Magic Hour? Also, I can make meal reservations soon, but it does not seem that the park hours are available with event times (World of Color). Will they be updated for April soon (7-12)? Thanks!!

    Hi there, Kellen! Thanks for returning to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question!

    Taking advantage of Extra Magic Hour at the Disneyland Resort is a smart way to make efficient use of your time. At Disneyland Park, most of Fantasyland and Tomorrowland are open for Extra Magic Hour. There are a few exceptions like Casey Jr. Circus Train and Autopia which open later.

    Over in Disney California Adventure Park, most of the park is open except for select attractions on Paradise Pier and "a bug's land" usually opens at the normal time. Cars Land is definitely open during Extra Magic Hour if you want to head to Radiator Springs Racers first thing in the morning. Keep in mind that Extra Magic Hour at Disney California Adventure Park is only for Guests staying at one of the three Disneyland Resort Hotels. To see a complete list of attraction operating hours during your trip, navigate to the "Attractions" page of the Disneyland Resort website and select a date in the upper right corner.

    The complete entertainment schedule with park hours is usually updated about 30-45 days in advance. However, since dining reservations can be made 60 days in advance, when your date becomes available, you will be able to see all the times available for reservations even if the park schedule hasn't been released yet.

    I hope this information was helpful. Happy planning!
