Ever gone to Disneyland and had to wait a long time to get on your favorite ride, like Peter Pan’s Flight or Space Mountain? One way around that is early admission. Select guests can get in the park one hour early, and since only certain guests are allowed in the park early, this means the lines are significantly smaller. Early admission is also great because it gives you more time in the happiest place on earth!
So you may be wondering how to get early admission. Well, there are 2 ways to get early admission:
- Extra Magic Hour: If you book a Disneyland Resort Hotel (the Disneyland Hotel, Grand Californian Hotel & Spa and the Paradise Pier Hotel) then during each day of your hotel stay, you can get admission into select attractions, entertainment, stores & dining at Disneyland (on Tuesdays, Thursdays & Saturdays) or California Adventure (on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays & Sundays) one hour early. And it just so happens that right now, you can save up to 30% off of Disneyland hotels.
- Magic Morning at Disneyland Park: If you don’t book a stay at a Disneyland hotel, there is another way to get into Disneyland early, and that’s with the Magic Morning at Disneyland Park, available at just Disneyland (not California Adventure) and it’s available for Tuesday, Thursday & Saturday. There are 2 ways to get the Magic Morning at Disneyland:
- Purchase a 3-day, 4-day or 5-day park hopper ticket: You can get a great price on park hopper tickets through Undercover Tourist.
- Purchase a Southern California CityPASS: This is a great option if you are planning a Southern California trip because in addition to getting you admission to Disneyland & California Adventure, the Southern California CityPASS gets you admission into SeaWorld San Diego LEGOLAND California in Carlsbad and, for an extra charge, the San Diego Zoo! You can find out more information on the Southern California CityPASS here.
So, find yourself zipping right through the lines by trying one of the above options to get into Disneyland an hour early!
