Disneyland is home to Sleeping Beauty’s castle, Carsland, and three gorgeous resorts. If you are thinking of traveling to Disneyland, it is important to know something about the resort offerings.

Guests of the Disneyland Resort Hotels can enjoy Extra Magic Hours-where the parks open early one hour for resort guests.
