    I saw early admission was announced for Disney world. Is Disneyland going to offer early entry for hotel guests? I plan on visiting end of oct to beginning of November. Thanks!

    Welcome to planDisney, Nicole!

    As an early-riser, I absolutely adored Extra Magic Hour at the Disneyland Resort! Getting into the parks an hour early each day of our stay was a major benefit for us so I sincerely hope they bring this option back soon. These services have been suspended since the parks reopened and I haven't heard any news of Extra Magic Hour or Magic Morning returning to the Disneyland Resort. This could certainly change at any time, though, so I recommend keeping your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for any upcoming announcements. 

    Something that has been announced, however, is a new digital service called Disney Genie. This is complimentary feature within the Disneyland app that will create customized park-touring itineraries based on your interests. It will even update throughout the day to ensure you maximize your time in the parks. There will also be the option to purchase Disney Genie+ for $20 per day, per ticket. With Disney Genie+, you will select the next available arrival time for a select attraction and then skip most of the wait by using the Lightning Lane. If you ever used Disney MaxPass in the past, this service will be quite similar. We don't know the exact date that Disney Genie will launch other than it will be sometime this fall. But with your trip happening at the end of October, I'd say there is a good chance you'll have the opportunity to use Disney Genie and Disney Genie+ during your visit. 

    I hope you have a magical time at the Happiest Place on Earth!
