    Am I able to book a one night stay at the Grand Californian Hotel?

    Hiya, Kyle!

    Welcome to planDisney!

    Oh Boy! We're so glad that you found us hEAR. Thank you for sending this Disneyland Resort planning question our way! Sometimes a quick staycation or even one night in a fancy hotel is all that you need to feel refreshed and ready to get back to real life. I'm very happy to say that while last yEAR there had been a temporary measure put in place that only allowed for stays of two nights or longer at both the Disneyland Resort Hotels and Walt Disney World Resorts Collections Hotels, that mandate is currently no more and Guests can once again book single night stays.

    I sadly cannot see inside your My Disneyland Account, Kyle, so I'm not sure when you're planning on visiting. However, hEAR are some top tips:

    ~ If you're wanting to get away sooner rather than later but you're not having any luck at finding a bed for your head, try playing around with your dates. You might not see anything available for a weekend night, but if you can check in on a weekday you'll have a bit more luck than on a weekend. 

    ~ Halloween Time at Disneyland Resort is a very popular time of yEAR to visit, with rooms often being booked solid months in advance. Same with the later part of November and pretty much all of December. You might have more luck with an Early November stay, which is just before The Holidays at Disneyland Resort officially kick off. Or, if you're thinking about a stay in December, start looking and booking now.

    ~ Even though your Guest Room won't officially be ready until 4:00 P.M. and check-out time is 11:00 A.M., you'll actually have access to the pools and fitness center all day on both your check-in and out day. There's even a changing room complete with a shower and a hair dryer, so be sure to pack your swim stuff and an outfit change in your carry-on! This might also be the perfect time to splurge and get a Club Level room as you'll have access to the Concierge Lounge with its all-day snacks and beverages from the moment you arrive until you say "See Ya' Real Soon!"

    I hope that this helped to clEAR up your question, Kyle! Be sure to follow the official planDisney Panel Instagram account where we're sharing all kinds of tips and tricks. We even just launched the brand new PlanDisney Podcast! And if you have any more Disneyland Resort planning questions, We're All Ears!
