    What time does downtown disney security checkpoint open

    Hi there, Chris, and thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    You may have already embarked on your Disneyland Resort adventures, but just in case, I’d love to pass along some information that may help you. The Downtown Disney District Security Checkpoints are scheduled to open approximately 20-30 minutes prior to the earliest theme park opening time. So, for example, if Extra Magic Hour is scheduled to begin at 7:00 AM at Disney California Adventure Park, then the Security Checkpoints would open between 6:30-6:40 AM. You can check the Park Hours and Entertainment Schedule daily here

    If you haven’t already, I recommend downloading the Disneyland app, my favorite handy helper in the theme parks! You can use it to check attraction wait times, make dining reservations, find your favorite Characters, and even mobile order food. 

    I’m so excited for all the magic coming to the Disneyland Resort in 2020! We’re super close to the January 17 opening of Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, and I couldn't be more excited to experience this one-of-a-kind attraction! 

    Then, in February, we welcome a brand-new parade, “Magic Happens”! The floats look gorgeous, and I can’t wait to see the artist renderings come to life! 

    By this summer, we’ll see Avengers Campus become reality in Disney California Adventure Park. From the all-new Spider-Man attraction, to Avengers Headquarters, to Pym Test Kitchen, this new campus promises to be epic!

    Wishing you a magical year ahead, Chris! Hope to see ya’ real soon!
