    Can we use the early arrival day any day of the week? What time does the park open?

    Hi there, Pat! Thanks so much for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Utilizing early admission at the Disneyland Resort is a smart and efficient way to see and do a lot during your visit. There are two types of early admission: Magic Morning and Extra Magic Hour. Guests who purchase a three-day or longer theme park ticket or a Southern California CityPASS have access to one Magic Morning at Disneyland Park on either a Tuesday, Thursday, or Saturday.

    Extra Magic Hour is available only to Guests staying at one of the three Disneyland Resort Hotels, but can be used every day of your trip. Extra Magic Hour is available at Disneyland Park on the days listed above or at Disney California Adventure Park on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays.

    Both early admission options allow Guests to enter the designated park one hour prior to the normal opening time. Use the calendar to look up hours of operation for your specific travel dates.

    I hope you have a magical visit to the Happiest Place on Earth!
