Disney aficionados can get an extra dose of their favorite theme parks when Disneyland in Anaheim and the Magic Kingdom Park in Orlando, Fla., open for 24 hours straight on Feb. 29, otherwise known as Leap Day.

The event, dubbed "One More Disney Day," will mark the first time in Disney's history that both parks will operate for 24 hours at the same time.

It won't be the first time that Disneyland has stayed open for 24 hours. Each year, in May and June, Disneyland stays open throughout the night on selected dates for graduating high school seniors.

On Feb. 29, the park will open at 6 a.m. and stay open until 6 a.m. on March 1. To commemorate the event, the park will hand out special Mickey ear hats to the first 2,000 guests who enter the park.

Expecting big crowds for the event, Disneyland announced that it will allow visitors to begin lining up for the park at 10 p.m. on Feb. 28. Parking and restrooms will be available at the Pumbaa Parking Lot on Disney Way.
