    Hi, I will be staying at the Paradise Pier from June 23 to June 25, two nights. Am I entitled to the Early Hour or Late Hour at the Parks because I am a guest at a Disney Resort? Thank you

    Hi, Maria!

    Welcome to the Disneyland Resort! I am happy to see you are traveling all the way from South Carolina. I guess it really is "a small world after all!"

    Guests staying at a Disney Resort (Disneyland Hotel, Paradise Pier, Disney's Grand Californian) may enjoy the Extra Magic Hour each day of their hotel stay. To partake in the Extra Magic hour, arrive one hour prior to the park's opening. Each guest must have their valid park admission ticket and active hotel room key card.

    The Extra Magic Hour is at Disneyland Park on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. Disney California Adventure Park's Extra Magic Hour days are Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays. Remember that this extra hour is BEFORE the parks open, not nighttime after-hours.

    Wishing you magical mornings at the Disneyland Resort!
