Sadly no. Unless you stay at one of the hotels on property. APs do not get the EE or MM

When I first got my AP I was disappointed as to not get Early Entry or Toontown Madness. Although if you do stay at the Disneyland Resort Hotels then you will get Early Entry but to get Toontown Madness all I did was I went through Walt Disney Travel and had a ticket with hotel and they added it for all people in the group even though we have AP as a Package. I was also told by a Disneyland Resort Cast Member that if you go to the Walt Disney Travel Agency in Downtown Disney that you can purchase the Magical Exclusion by itself which is Toontown and Priority Seating, have not tried this yet but will when I go down next time.

Ooh, good to know. I may have to check that out. Anyone know how much for the MTTMM?

MTTMM? are you asking Mickey's Toontown and Magic Morning? If so the person told me that if I were to walk into the Walt Disney Travel and ask for the Magical Exclusion it would be $10.00 but did not say if that was per person, he said he was a booklet that would also come with the preferred seating. He also said that it was something that was not well known, but I have not tried it yet, but will when I go down in Oct.

Sorry for my Goofy and Dopey questions. I may be purchasing a Premium Annual Passport. I drive by Disneyland to work so I plan on mostly using the pass on Saturday afternoons at around 4:00 pm. Is there a problem finding parking in the Mickey and Friends parking structure at that time?

I'm also mainly going Saturday nights because I dig the Swing Band that plays at the Garden Plaza Stage. (might be the wrong name) Does this Swing Band play all year or just during the summer? The Park Calendar doesn't show info for daily attractions after October. Thanks!

There are various swing bands that play each month. I know Stompy Jones plays once a month. Doc Anello is another. Is it a particular band you are looking for?

I'm not looking for a particular band. I just want to know if the bands only play during the summer. I think they might play all year only on saturday nights but I was just looking for confirmation. I really dig listening to the swing music and watching the dancers shake a leg. This is definitely a reason for me to get a Premium Pass.

All I know is that it is year round and they been doing it for years. I remember them back about 5 years ago. There are things that do not make the online WDW and DLR sites but do appear in the parks. Farley is one an entertainer that does not appear on the schedule even for the Entertainment guides.

I have an Entertainment Times Guide from April 24 - 26. The park was open until midnight that Saturday.

Jump, Jive, Boogie Swing Party = Main Street, U.S.A. - Plaza Garden Stage
Hit the dance floor where swing's the thing!
Sat: Doc Anello and the Swing Machine 7:00, 8:00, 9:00, 10:15 pm

CONFIRMED! I am an Annual Passholder and I was working in the area and decided to go and check this out. The woman at the front desk of the Walt Disney Travel Company store wasn't sure if they had the booklet for individual sale but after she contacted someone else she was able to sell me the "Magical Extras" booklet! Apparently this is a booklet that's given to guests who book there travel to DLR through WDTC or other travel agents.

Here is what it comes with: Collectible Pin and Lanyard (worth the price all by itself!); Preferred seating for Disney's Aladdin - A Musical Spectacular, Muppet-Vision 3D, It's Tough To Be A Bug! in "a bug's land", Animation Academy in the Hollywood Pictures Backlot; Free shuttle to and from South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa, CA for the ultimate shopping experience (I personally wouldn't ever use this); and Mickey's Toontown Morning Madness.

Thanks for the head's up! I never would have thought to check this out if I hadn't been told about it. $10.00 per person by BTW.

So anyone can buy this for $10, even if they have an AP and booked a hotel direct?

If you are looking at Compass Books, there is a walkway to the right of it. It is the first office past Compass Books down that walkway.

To TwinDaddy, yes.

Glad it helped lowfidelity. I am an Ap holder and was glad that I could purchase this for my dad who is not. I also wouldn't have known if I wouldn't have talked to a Walt Disney Travel specialist. Plus when he said $10.00 I knew that it was manageable and more trustworthy then getting some of the stuff separately on Ebay and such. Plus after booking through Expedia not through them I was glad to not be excluded from the Magical exclusion. :)

It's right across from the Disneyland Hotel if you're looking for a more distinguishable landmark ;)

Thank you both.
