    I have two questions. Does the ticket booth open before the park at Disneyland? Also, there a list of current magic shots offered in the parks?

    Howdy, Lisa! Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    The ticket booths outside the parks open approximately 45 minutes before the earliest regular theme park opening. Or, you can skip the ticket booths entirely if you purchase your tickets online and select the eTicket option or if you purchase tickets through the Disneyland app. You can then head straight to the gates at either Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park and scan your app or redeem the voucher you received by email if the tickets were bought online. You will then be given a standard paper ticket to use for the duration of your visit.

    Magic Shots can vary by photographer and location, but in the past we've had Magic Shots holding Tinker Bell in our hands and one with Stitch. Simply ask your PhotoPass photographer what Magic Shots are available and they will pose you perfectly so a Disney character will magically appear in your photo. Also, there are these fun Animated Magic Shots available at select locations which are short animated movies featuring your photo. If you want to plan your Magic Shots further, give PhotoPass Guest Services a call at (407) 560-4300 and they should be able to provide more specific details.

    I hope your trip to the Happiest Place on Earth is full of magic and memories!
