I'm with you on Hollywood Land but I wouldn't expect a replacement for a long while, at least until after the new Avengers land is finished.

As for the unused buildings at Downtown Disney District? The whole reason those buildings were closed in the first place was for the then-upcoming fourth resort hotel. When the city said, "nah, no tax breaks for you", Disney pulled the plug. That was very recently, you can't expect Disney to come up with a completely new plan overnight.

Does anyone know if this is the case with both extra magic hour and magic morning? I didn't realize until now that these are two different things but apparently Friday is just an extra magic hour day. :lol:

I learned the hard way there was a distinction between them during my visit 2 weeks ago. I was all set for an early morning at California Adventure before realizing Magic Morning only worked at Disneyland.

On the bright side, they did start letting people into Disneyland 15-20 minutes early, so it seems like they open the gate a little early anyway which still let me get a FastPass ready for use at opening.

The basic difference is that the Magic Morning is only at Disneyland. If you have a three-day or longer ticket, you can get in once. Early Magic Hour is just for resort guests, and is offered at both parks, alternating between the two. On days that have Magic Morning, Early Magic Hour is offered at the same time. They should scan your ticket and allow you to get in for Magic Morning if you have a qualifying ticket. They'll ask you for a hotel key only if you try to get into an Early Magic Hour and not a Magic Morning, or if your ticket doesn't qualify.

Okay, so I won’t rush to get there for the start of the magic hour then. I don’t have a qualifying ticket and would only bother if I could enter the park and reserve my first Maxpass early (even though I couldn’t ride anything until 9:00).

Okay, without an early entry ticket, you have two options: 1) Go to DCA first; you can get in there 30 minutes early (just to the Carthay Circle area until rope drop) and theoretically should be able to get a Maxpass reservation. I say theoretically because last time I was there was before Maxpass, but from what I read, it should be possible once you're through the gates. 2) Get a breakfast reservation for the Plaza Inn. They'll let you in the gate early and you go straight to the restaurant, where again, theoretically you should be able to make a Maxpass reservation.

Okay cool. What time do they generally open the gates at the other park (assuming I don’t reserve breakfast)?

If it’s about the same time I’d imagine that I’m better off just going there, rope dropping something and reserving Radiator Springs Racers on the way to whatever we’re rope dropping, right?

Usually about 10 minutes or so prior to official opening, they'll let you into Main Street.

Okay cool. So is it super stupid to go to DCA to activate Maxpass, reserve Racers as soon as I get through the gate and if my reservation time isn’t right near opening just walk right out and rope drop Space Mountain or something at the other park? :lol:

Sorry for the dumb questions, I know nothing about Disneyland. Nothing...
