    Does the extra magic hour benefit apply to the Disneyland Good Neighbor Hotels as well?

    Greetings, Yvonne!

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. I would love to help you plan your trip to the Happiest Place on Earth!

    I'm excited that you have already started looking into hotel options for your vacation. Disneyland Resort Good Neighbor Hotels are great when you are looking for affordable accommodations close to the parks. At this time, the Extra Magic Hour early entry benefit each day is only available to Guests staying on property at one of the three Disneyland Resort Hotels. Guests of these hotels will get one hour of early entry into either Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park every day of their stay (with valid park admission). Keep in mind, though, that if you purchase a 3+ day park ticket before arrival, you are still eligible for ONE Magic Morning early entry to Disneyland Park even if you are staying off property. These one-hour time slots before the parks open to the general public are crucial to my family. We love getting the opportunity to experience the parks with fewer Guests which also means shorter waits for our favorite attractions.

    If you won't be able to experience the Extra Magic Hour benefit because of your hotel choice or short ticket duration, my advice is to maximize your park days with Disney MaxPass. This added feature will allow you to save time by making digital Disney FASTPASS selections right on the Disneyland mobile app. You won't believe just how many attractions you can experience and how much time you will save with Disney MaxPass. It is a MUST for my family since we started using it.

    I hope this helps, and please return if you have any other questions. Have a Fantasmic day!
