Magic Morning and Extra Magic Hour


MAGIC MORNINGS allow ONE day of early admission to Disneyland for guests with a 3+ day ticket! Magic Mornings are only available on Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday. The park opens one hour prior to general admission opening time.

What is open during Magic Morning at Disneyland?

During Magic Morning at Disneyland, guests can enjoy select attractions, shops & dining on Main Street, in Tomorrowland & Fantasyland.

EXTRA MAGIC HOUR is similar to Magic Mornings (access to select stores, rides & dining), but this is for guests who stay in one of the three Disney Hotels (Disneyland Hotel, Paradise Pier Hotel or The Grand Californian). Extra Magic Hour is good for early admission to the parks EVERYDAY of your hotel stay (alternate park each day). Disneyland offers Extra Magic Hour on Tuesday, Thursday & Saturday. California Adventure offers Extra Magic Hour on Monday, Wednesday, Friday & Sunday.

What is open during Extra Magic Hour at California Adventure?

During Extra Magic Hour in California Adventure, guests get to enjoy Cars Land, Guardians of the Galaxy Mission: Breakout! (opening Summer 2017), Toy Story Midway Mania, King Triton’s Carousel, California Screamin’, Soarin’ Around the World, & The Little Mermaid – Ariel”s Undersea Adventure.

Suggestions for EXTRA MAGIC HOUR (for Disney Hotel guests) – If you’re staying at any of the Disney Hotels, you can use the California Adventure park entrance via the Grand Californian Hotel instead of the regular park entrance (hotel entrance lets you in right by Grizzly River Run). We also suggest arriving at least 30 minutes prior to early open time just to guarantee you’re at the front of the line & get the most out of your extra hour!

Try to hit the popular attractions with the longest wait times first. The most popular attractions that are open during the extra hour in Disneyland are Peter Pan, Hyperspace Mountain, Star Tours and Matterhorn. Most popular attractions that are open in California Adventure are Radiator Springs Racers, Toy Story Midway Mania, California Screamin’ and the soon-to-be Guardians of the Galaxy Mission: Breakout! Fast Pass is NOT available during Magic Morning or Extra Magic Hour.
