    If you stay in one of the Disneyland resorts do you get a early magic morning everyday? How much is to have breakfast at the plaza per person? If you have a max pass do all your pictures come with it or do you have to buy a photo pass to get your photos?

    Hey, hey Kelli and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I am so glad you stopped by with this Fantasmic! question. The benefits of staying at a Disneyland Resort hotel are as plentiful as the pixie dust Tinker Bell sprinkles as she soars around Sleeping Beauty Castle. Your May 2020 trip will be filled with nostalgia, laughter, and may even take you to a galaxy, far, far away.

    Getting into the theme parks early is a huge advantage especially in Fantasyland where FASTPASS attractions are limited. There are two early admission opportunities to get your magic flowing at Disneyland Resort: Extra Magic Hour and Magic Morning. With Extra Magic Hour you are granted early entry, one hour prior to the theme park opening, to one theme park for every day of your stay. Disneyland Park Extra Magic Hour days are Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays while Disney California Adventure Park days are Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays.

    Magic Morning is currently available for Guests who purchase a valid 3+ day theme park ticket in advance of their Disneyland Resort arrival. Magic Morning is only valid for Disneyland Park on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. So you should not need this if you are staying on property.

    If you have the opportunity, you should dine at Plaza Inn during Minnie & Friends – Breakfast in the Park. Big hugs, autographs, and delicious food make this an enchanting exclusive character experience. As of today, this meal of memories is $34.00 for Guests ages 10+ and $19.00 for ages 3-9 (tax and gratuity are not included).

    With Disney MaxPass you have the ability to schedule your Disney FASTPASS selections from the Disneyland app instead of having to scan and pick up a paper reminder at the Disney FASTPASS distribution point. And with a Park Hopper Ticket, you may schedule Disney FASTPASS selections from one theme park to the other. In addition, all Disney PhotoPass photos are available to share with unlimited downloads (see expiration policy). My favorite photos are the Magic Shots where Disney characters "automagically" appear in your photos. What a game changer in Disney theme park planning!

    Disney Dad Tip: Many Disney friends have very large hands and need a thick permanent marker to sign your autograph book.

    Kelli, enjoy making many Magical Memories.
