    Are there any discounts available for character dining experiences at Disneyland? I recall AAA members could get a discount. Also, as guests of the Paradise Pier, for how many days is the Magic Morning perk valid? Thanks!

    Hi, Donna! Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Character dining is a ton of fun and such an easy way to meet a lot of your favorite characters all in one place. There are not any current discounts offered by the Disneyland Resort on character dining unless you happen to be an Annual Passholder. If you book a vacation package, you can add character dining options to your package price ahead of time. This would allow you to budget and pay for your meal(s) in advance.

    As a Guest of Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel, you are actually entitled to Extra Magic Hour every day of your stay. This means that you can enter Disneyland Park one hour early on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, and Disney California Adventure Park one hour early on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays. The extra hour at Disney California Adventure Park is only for Disneyland Resort Hotel Guests so it's an awesome perk! You will just need to show your hotel key card when you enter the parks for Extra Magic Hour. I recommend taking advantage of this early hour as much as you can because you can usually ride many of your favorite attractions with minimal waits.

    Please return to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with any other questions you may have. See ya real soon!
