Why Stay at a Disney Resort Hotel?


Experience the Disneyland Resort Hotel difference with benefits that include close proximity to the parks, extra magic, adventure and more.

Extra Magic Hour for Disneyland Resort Hotel Guests

With Extra Magic Hour, an early admission option, registered Disneyland Resort Hotel Guests enjoy—during every day of hotel stay—admission to select attractions, stores, entertainment and dining locations in Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park for one full hour before the parks open to the general public on select days.

To enhance the early entry experience, it is strongly recommended that Guests arrive at least one hour and 15 minutes prior to regular park opening.

Schedule for Extra Magic Hour
The current Extra Magic Hour schedule allows registered Disneyland Resort Hotel Guests with valid theme park admission, access to:

  • Disneyland Park: Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, one hour prior to park open
  • Disney California Adventure Park: Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, one hour prior to park open

Know Before You Go

  • Extra Magic Hour is valid for registered Disneyland Resort Hotel Guests (ages 3 and older) who have a valid theme park ticket and active hotel room key card.
  • Extra Magic Hour is valid for admission to select attractions at either Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park one (1) hour before the applicable park opens to the general public every day of the Guest’s stay.
  • Reservations required to visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge between May 31 and June 23, 2019.
