Another question....Our trip is planned for Christmas/New Years and the only day in our schedule, so far, that we can use it is ON Christmas Day. Do they generally cancel EE/MM on holiday's? I know the subject to change thing but I would hate to get there at 6:30 and have to wait 90 mins to get in.

Well in your case, I don't think showing up 90 minutes is bad at all. That is THE most crowded time of the year and crowds will be showing up MUCH earlier than that. MM is not cancelled on holidays, but in your situation, with the park opening at 8, and a super busy season, I would plan on getting to the gates by 6AM at least if you want the most out of your morning park touring hours.

I might be completely confused or the Disney website might not have the right info but when I click the link for Magic Morning it reads
Quote:
"A Magic Morning early admission is included with 3 - 8 day Park Hopper® souvenir tickets. Guests may enter Fantasyland in Disneyland® Park 1 hour before opening to the general public*.
*Operation of Attractions and appearances of characters are subject to change without notice. Restrictions apply. Each Guest must have a valid multi-day admission media in order to enter Disneyland park and Fantasyland.

I got that from http://disneyland.disney.go.com/disn...ackage2008Page and click the link for Magic Morning in the package description.

The Disney Website has not updated the days of the week. (now Sun/Tue/Thur/Sat as of 1/1/08.

Also, for 3 years the ability to enjoy MM (formerly EE) multiple times for DLR Hotel guests has been an "un-advertised" perk. If this ever changes it will be largely discussed here & you'll hear about it here the day it changes.

You're entitled to MM for Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, meaning every day of your trip when MM is offered. MM does not happen every day.

It's all on the first post of this thread. Here's a quote:

Is MM offered at California Adventure also?
Different from WDW, MM is only offered at Disneyland Park. However, DCA frequently opens half an hour early to allow guests to ride Soarin (only) and line up for rope drop.

A time saving tip during Year(s) of a Million Dreams

Here is a little time saving tip if you are in a hurry to get into the parks first on these mornings:
If you are one of the first to be waiting at the gates, a cast member will be choosing a family to be Honorary Citizens, sign the guest book and officially open the park. You get a button for each memeber of your family and it seems like a big thrill, right? Well, if you are not in a rush, yes. But if you are in a rush, and chosen you might want to defer to a different family, because this process takes a while and will DEFINATELY hold you up.
We saw this one day and that family was there forever. The next day we were chosen and we were trying to get to Nemo, so we said "Thank you, but no, thank you". I think we were the first to ever decline!
Lo and behold, we were sitting waiting for the parade that day and a cast member came up to us to give us buttons and make us "Honorary Citizens"!
Ironic!

We will be staying at DLH June 2-7 and visiting the two parks Tuesday-Friday. We arrive late on a Monday and early afternoon on Saturday.

The last grad night will take place on Thursday June 5th. Anyone know how far in advance the changes to MM will be available? I was hoping for 2 days of MM, but who know if that will happen now!

I'm still trying to figure out if the parking lots are open before EE/MM so that we can get there, park (which we're still figuring out if we're doing), and still get time for the extra hour. Anyone know?

They open 30 minutes before MM.
