Beginning in January 2024, Disneyland Resort will implement changes to its early entry program for hotel guests, including Disney Vacation Club members staying at The Villas at Disneyland Hotel and The Villas at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel.
Effective January 20, 2024, guests staying at Disneyland Resort hotels will receive 30 minutes of early entry at one of the two theme parks, either Disneyland or Disney California Adventure. This is a change from the current policy which offers daily early entry at both parks. The early entry park will be designated on the theme park calendar when operating hours are published.
Prior to the COVID-19 shutdown, Disneyland had offered 60 minutes of early entry each day at one of the two theme parks. In addition to hotel guests, many off-site visitors could also attend by purchasing a ticket which included access to Magic Mornings.
Upon reopening in April 2021, the perk was changed to its current format with 30 minutes of early entry at both parks, with only Disney hotel guests eligible to participate.
Walt Disney World resort currently offers 30 minutes of early entry to qualifying hotel guests at all 4 theme parks.
