    Hi moms! I'm planning our trip for spring break 2018. Is the Extra Magic Hour offered on Sunday? Also, are we able to plan our Fastpasses prior to arrival like WDW? Thanks, Kathi

    Hi Kathi!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I'm delighted to hEAR you are planning a trip to the Happiest Place on Earth and I'd love to help!

    At this time, Extra Magic Hour Early Admission is offered one hour prior to park open as follows: 
    Disneyland Park: Tuesdays, Thursdays & Saturdays
    Disney California Adventure Park: Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays & Sundays

    For Guests that frequently visit Walt Disney World, Disneyland Resort operates a little different when it comes to FastPass. You will have two different options for selecting your FastPass, but both are only available once your ticket has been scanned and you've entered the park for the day, so you do not book your FastPass in advance, but rather after your arrival. For the greatest possible selection, you'll want to be in the park as early as you can! Your first option is to visit the individual In-Park FastPass Distribution Points. When you locate these points, you'll see a displayed Return Time. If this time works for you, you'll want to insert your admission ticket into the FastPass machine, which will generate a FastPass receipt.

    Your second option is the newly released, Disney MaxPass! This is an additional purchase that will allow you to select your FastPass on the Disneyland Mobile App after you enter the park for the day. The video on this Disney Parks Blog article fully explains everything in a easy to follow, step by step process.

    Please let us know if you have any other questions!
