We are staying at GCH for 6 nights from Wed - Tues and before reading this thread , I researched on the boards that with GAT tickets I would be getting 2 MMs (even though I'm Canadian and they say US only - I've read that they don't really make a distinction?). At first I forgot about the onsite perk of MM for all onsite guests, so 2 MMs with GAT was okay with me. Now I want ALL 3 OF MY MMs if possible - Mwah Ha Ha (greedy, evil laughter)!!!
What I guess I'm asking is, will I receive a "slip" at GCH checking that I use for MM, independent of my GAT tickets? Or am I locked into only 2 MMs since my GAT tickets will be picked up separately?
I guess if this is the case should I just change my plans and buy my tickets through Disney?
I appreciate, in advance, all the help I can get (can you tell I need it?)
Yep, Bumbershoot is completely correct. I tweaked the OP to avoid any confusion. Thanks!

Question monorail to MM?

Can you take the monorail from Disneyland Hotel for Morning Madness or is it open yet??
Is the Toontown celebration the same thing and open to the same people as Morning Madness is or is it an extra cost?

Sschier, Magic Morning (MM) is different than Mickey's Toontown Morning Madness (MTTMM, which you're calling MM in your thread). Magic morning is what used to be called Early Entry, where you get into DL 1 hour before the general admission time. People with 3 or more day park hopper tickets have one MM; people staying in one of the 3 Disney hotels are eligible for all MMs. They are on Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

Mickey's Toontown Morning Madness is on (I think, I could be wrong!) Mon, Wed and Sat? or maybe it's Fri and Sat. At any rate, I know it overlaps one day with Magic Mornings. It is a little celebration thing back in the Toontown area. Toontown usually doesn't open until 1 hour after the park opens, but on TTMM days, it opens at the same time as general opening. You have to have a pass, which comes with packages sold through the Disney company and a few other affiliated travel companies, like Costco. You go back to ToonTown and the gates are closed, and the CMs there take your MTTMM passes and let you in. You go to the bandstand area in front of town hall, and they have a little show/ceremony where the Mayor and Mickey welcome you and make you all honorary citizens of Toontown. Then the characters line up by their houses for a meet 'n' greet. It's cute, my 5 year old DD was mildly amused, but the 10 y.o. thought it was lame.

You could take the monorail back there. The exit is near the entrance to ToonTown. They don't start the ceremony till maybe 20 or 30 minutes past the park opening time, to give people time to get back there.

Hope that helps!

To clarify post #139:

The OP (post #1) includes information about the monorail and Magic Mornings (MM), and Mickey's Toontown Morning Madness (MTTMM):

Quote:
For guests staying at the DLH or PPH can you take the monorail?
You can use the monorail to enter the park for MM; however it is a better option to walk through DTD and use the main entrance. The monorail sometimes beats the front gate crowds. Sometimes not.

...

Is MM the same as Toontown Morning Madness?
No, Toontown Morning Madness is only for people who buy packages from AAA, Costco, Disney, etc. [For] Toontown Morning Madness, [guests enter] Mickey's Toontown one hour before it [usually] opens. Since Mickey's Toontown usually opens one hour after official park opening, Toontown Morning Madness often begins at official park opening. Different to MM days, Toontown Morning Madness is offered on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday, making Saturday the only day in which both MM and Toontown Morning Madness is offered.

One tiny correction to post #140:

The monorail does not travel to ToonTown. (The monorail travels between DTD and Tomorrowland.)

You can take the DL Railroad to ToonTown.

And yes, the MTTMM days are correct: M, W, F, and Sa.

*slaps forehead* D'oh. I knew that. I was mixing up the monorail and the train.

By the bye, was gonna say-- I wouldn't take the monorail in on a magic morning, though. It doesn't always get going right when the park opens, so people on the boards usually say that walking in is better, to get to those nice walk-on rides on Magic mornings. It would be fine on a regular opening morning when you're going to MTTMM.

Bumping this again because there have been tons of MM questions lately.

Do they change the EE days when they fall on a holiday? The only day that we can do EE is on Christmas Day. So I am hoping not.

That's a good question and I don't know the answer to it, so I'm it bumping up!

well, don't know how accurate this still is, but I know back in Jan. or Feb. I stayed at the Paradise Pier and MM started at 8 a.m. I thought I would be "smart" and park at Mickey & Friends so I could take the tram at the end of the day (I was going home that day), so got up early to be at the parking structure at 7 a.m. so I could be at the gate for 8 a.m. opening for MM. One flaw in that plan--they didn't open the parking booths until 7:30~ and there was a line of about 40 cars ahead of me~! So by the time I got parked, on the tram and through the gates it was about 8:20. Not good planning.

So it seems like the parking lot opens up 30 minutes before MM on MM days. Can others confirm this?

Also, I'm pretty sure the only things that change MM days are grad nites, so if Christmas falls on a MM, then it will be a MM day.
