    We are only at Disneyland 1 day. Is there anyway to get Magic Hour?

    Hi there, Truvella! 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I hope you’re getting excited for all the magic awaiting you at the Happiest Place on Earth. Your vacation will be here before you can say “bibbidi-bobbidi-boo!”

    Extra Magic Hour is available for select attractions, stores, entertainment and dining locations in Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park for one hour before the parks open to the general public on select days. Extra Magic Hour is offered exclusively to registered Guests of the three Disneyland Resort Hotels, so you may only use this early admission option if you are staying at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, the Disneyland Hotel or Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel. 

    If you don’t plan to book and stay at a Disneyland Resort Hotel but would like a way to maximize your time in the theme parks, be sure to check out Disney MaxPass. It enables you to make Disney FASTPASS selections on the go from your mobile device with the Disneyland app once you enter the theme parks. Disney PhotoPass photo downloads are also included for each day you purchase Disney MaxPass to help document all the priceless memories you’re sure to make during your visit! 

    I hope this information helps. Please write back with any other pixie-dusted planning questions you can dream of, Truvella! We’d be happy to help. 

    Wishing you magic,
