  • Early Entry to Disneyland

    I know several days of the week they have early entry to MK. My sister got special tickets in a package she bought and stayed off property. We will be there in November, Paradise Pier 11-14 through 11-17 do we get early entry for staying at a Disney hotel? We have Premium AP's so all we booked was the room.
    Thanks
    Steve

    Early entry is on Mondays Tuesdays Thursdays and Saturdays. Staying on property you just have to show your room charge slip to get entry on any or all days it is offered. It is one hour before the park entry.

      Wait seriously?

      I didn't know you could get it on all days it's offered if you stay on property.

        Yes you can. Here is some detailed information if you are interested. It is an excerpt from this thread: www.micechat.com/forums/showthread.php?t=30900

        17. Early Entry at DLR vs. Extra Magic Hours at WDW

        DLR and WDW have a history of offering extended park hours to certain visitors. These perks change over time and the current form of these perks will most likely change in the future. Therefore the information in this section is the most likely of all sections in this guide to become outdated.



        EE is offered at DL on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. During EE DL opens 1 hour early for certain guests. The rides open during EE are fairly regular but subject to change on any day. During EE most of the FantasyLand rides are open, as are Space Mountain and Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters in TomorrowLand.

        Officially the only way to get EE is to buy a 3+ day parkhopper bonus ticket. Note that most DLR tickets are bonus tickets, but some (such as those offered by the military) are not (or so I have heard). If a guest buys one of these 3+ day bonus tickets, they are entitled to one EE morning during their trip. It does not matter if the guest stays at a DLR hotel, a good neighbor hotel, or any hotel for that matter.







        I have never done TTMM so this is second-hand. During TTMM a mock ceremony is held and access to characters is provided. Apparently the TT rides (of which there are only a few) are also open.

        TTMM is obtained by simply booking your trip through the DLR website, and does require you to stay at a DLR or Good Neighbor hotel. Unlike EE, TTMM does not have such a major effect on DL traffic patterns. But TTMM will affect Toontown traffic patterns as there will already be lines when ToonTown officially opens to everyone. If you want to visit ToonTown and do not have TTMM privileges, it is best to visit it on a non-TTMM day. And go early.



        Some people are tempted to go to the headliner rides during EE, namely Space Mountain and Buzz Lightyear. Both of these rides have FastPass (FP), and as such can be ridden any time of day with a short line using FP, unlike the FantasyLand rides which do not have FP. It is therefore wise to focus on FantasyLand during EE.



        What if it is an EE day (Mon/Tue/Thu/Sat) but you yourself do not have EE? On such days even if you arrive at the parks before they open and are first in line for regular opening you will face long lines in FantasyLand right away. Such days are thus good days to avoid FantasyLand altogether. They are also good days to go to DCA.

        In summary there is no other way to slice it. If you want to do FantasyLand during high season without extremely long lines, either do it during EE or do it first thing on a non-EE day.

          Thank you all, this is a big help. I will use EE, I can always get a lot done first thing even entering at opening, this will be a big help.

            We used the room receipt, and everyone in our party got in (even though the other family stayed off property). Didn't have a problem.
