    Hi. We have a split stay at Disneyland with 1 night at Disneyland Hotel and the remaining at Grand Californian Villas. Can we use the extra magic hour on our check-out day for Disneyland Hotel even if we haven't checked into GCV? EMH is at 7AM. Thanks!

    Hey, howdy, hey, Casey! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I'm so excited that you will be enjoying the grandeur and fun of not just one but two of the on-property accommodations at the Disneyland Resort during your upcoming visit.

    Extra Magic Hour, one of the many benefits for guests staying at a Disneyland Resort Hotel, is available to guests during every day of your stay. My family recently enjoyed a one-night stay at the Paradise Pier Hotel. During our visit, we not only went to Extra Magic Hour on our check-out day, but on our check-in day as well! That's right! Extra Magic Hour is available every day of your Disneyland Resort Hotel stay, including the first and the last! If you have the opportunity to check-in before park opening, you can obtain your room key needed for early admission credentials. Your actual room may not be ready yet, but the fun awaiting in the parks sure is. Your hotel will text you when your room is ready, probably just in time for the perfect afternoon nap or swim in the pool.

    Speaking of pools, you may have heard the pool area at the Disneyland Hotel will undergo refurbishments during your upcoming visit. The good news is that you’ll be permitted to visit the pool area at the next-door Paradise Pier Hotel, including the amazing California Streamin' slide! Just like with Extra Magic Hour benefits, pool privileges are also available on the first and last day of your stay!

    During your stay, I hope you also enjoy the upcoming Get Your Ears On - A Mickey and Minnie Celebration!

    May you have a Fantasmic! time at the Disneyland Resort!
