    Hi, i've booked a 1 night stay (checking in Saturday and out Sunday) at Grand Californian with a 2 day park hopper pass. Can you tell me if i can use the early morning magic hours on the Saturday as well as the Sunday?

    Hello again, Jennifer! 

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We’re so happy that once again you’ve brought a question our way! We’re delighted when guests trust us, again and again, to assist with their Disney vacation plans! 

    I have great news! Registered guests of the Disneyland Resort Hotels may enjoy Extra Magic Hour. This early admission option is available every day of your hotel stay. It allows for admission to select attractions, stores, entertainment and dining locations in Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park for one full hour before the parks open to the general public. 

    Disneyland Park Extra Magic Hours are Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. You’ll enjoy early admission to Main Street U.S.A., Tomorrowland and Fantasyland. Disney California Adventure Park Extra Magic Hours are Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. There, you’ll have access to Buena Vista Street, Hollywood Land and Cars Land. Taking advantage of Extra Magic Hour allows you to get a head start on your day at the Disneyland Resort! 

    On Saturday you may park your vehicle at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel, pre-register for check-in and store your bags with Bell Services. The Front Desk staff will give you a room key that you can use to access Extra Magic Hour at Disneyland Park. You’ll receive a text message when your room is ready. When you check out on Sunday, you may leave your car at the hotel and store your luggage at Bell Services once again. You’ll already have your room key and can use it to access Extra Magic Hour at Disney California Adventure Park. You may even use the Grand Gate entrance to access Disney California Adventure Park directly from your hotel. This entrance is exclusive to registered guests of Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel. 

    Have a wonderful time at “The Happiest Place on Earth!” Head back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with more questions!
