    Since we have the premuim AP do we and wont have a car do we still have to pay the $15 per day parking fee?
    What days are magic mornings offered?
    Is there early check in or a place to store bags if room not ready?

    If you don't have a car, there is no parking charge. Not sure what having an AP has to do with this.

    Bell services will be happy to store your bags until your room is ready.

    About the AP cause we have one that provides the parking fee for the lots/garages and I didnt want to have pay for parking if we didnt have a car, cause I know that at the DLH we had to pay for parking even though we have the upgraded parking AP
    So that will be good that we wont have to pay since we wont have a car this time around. Thanks!

    Actually, you would have to pay if you have a car - regardless of whether you have a annual pass that includes parking at the lots/garages. The annual pass doesn't include overnight parking anywhere and doesn't include parking at a hotel.

    If you don't have a car, tell them you don't have a car. But, I'm pretty sure that the DL hotels (PP, GCH, and DLH) have a resort fee now (instead of a separate parking fee).

    Yes, they have a storage room for your bags if your room isn't ready. If you give the desk clerk your cell phone # he/she will send you a text message when your room is ready. (Tho this doesn't always work.) When we checked in around 11 a.m. our room was ready so we were able to get settled early.

    The DLR hotels did away with the resort fee and instituted a parking fee instead. You used to have to pay the resort fee whether you had a car or not. Now, you only pay if you have a vehicle.

    For your unanswered question, Magic Mornings are typically Sat, Sun, Tues, Thurs. I say typically, because if there is a special event happening in the parks, they sometimes may be changed.

    Yep.

    Unfortunately, the emails sent after booking a disneyland resort STILL talk about a resort fee. So annoying of them.


    Magic Mornings are usually the S and T days. Sat Sun Tues and Thurs. But it's also listed on the calendar on disneyland.com. Also, they will tell you at check in. If you get a really good CM, they'll circle the info on the sheet, and write down exactly what days you can take part in MM.
