    can you use the extra magic hour everyday you stay at the hotel, as long as you have disneyland tickets?

    Greetings, Joshua, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I’m so glad you’re hEAR!

    Staying at a Disneyland Resort Hotel is such a special experience… there's simply nothing better than being immersed in the magic 24/7! One of my favorite perks of staying at one of the three Disneyland Resort Hotels is the benefit of Extra Magic Hour. As a Guest of the Disneyland Hotel, Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel, or Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, you’ll receive Extra Magic Hour for every day of your hotel stay, along with your valid theme-park tickets. With this early-admission option, you’ll get access to select attractions in Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park for one hour before the park opens to the general public on select days. Disneyland Park is open early on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday, while Disney California Adventure Park is open early on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday. There will be a sign posted in the lobby of your Resort Hotel to let you know which theme park is offering Extra Magic Hour that day. 

    I highly recommend taking advantage of Extra Magic Hour! This special time will allow you to check off a bunch of your “must-do” attractions before the park opens to the general public. So, map out your plan of attack the night before to help your Extra Magic Hour run as smoothly as possible.  

    Another favorite benefit of staying at a Resort Hotel is Package Express, which allows you to send merchandise purchases directly to your Resort Hotel. Just ask a Cast Member about merchandise delivery when paying for your items. This is especially handy for larger, bulkier purchases, such as custom astromech droid units from Droid Depot

    To make your Halloween Time visit even more spook-tacular, you may also want to consider splurging on an In-Room Celebration! This is a great way to add a little extra pixie dust to your Resort Hotel experience. 

    I hope this information helps, Joshua! Please stop by with any additional questions… I’m all EARs!
