    How do I book a vacation at a Disney Resort Hotel that includes the extra magic morning-allowing early entry each day of our stay? The only option when adding theme park tickets is for magic morning-access only once during a stay.

    Hello, Deborah! Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Booking a vacation package at one of the three Disneyland Resort Hotels is an excellent way to ensure you have the most magical time at the Disneyland Resort. When you stay at a Disneyland Resort Hotel, Extra Magic Hour is automatically included no matter how many days worth of theme park tickets you purchase. This perk is available to all Disneyland Resort Hotel Guests for each day of their stay. You simply show your hotel card key with your valid theme park admission ticket to gain entry into Extra Magic Hour at the park gates. Magic Morning is also an early admission option, but is only applicable to those who are staying off-site and purchase a three-day or longer ticket.

    Extra Magic Hour takes place an hour before normal opening at Disneyland Park on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, and at Disney California Adventure Park on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays. The Extra Magic Hour at Disney California Adventure Park is only for Disneyland Resort Hotel Guests, so make sure you take advantage of this extra hour with low crowds. My family typically uses this hour to ride Toy Story Midway Mania! or Radiator Springs Racers a few times plus several other attractions before the park opens to the general public.

    I hope this clarified things for you. Please return to the Disney Parks Moms Panel again with any other questions you may have about your upcoming vacation.
