    Can you access the DCA from Paradise Pier? Where does it enter the park near?

    Hi there Kami!  Thank you for stopping by planDisney with your great question about Disney California Adventure Park, my family absolutely loves that park!  

    I'm excited to share that there is a private entrance into Disney California Adventure Park for guests staying at Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel!  It is only accessible for hotel guests, which is another great perk of staying at a Disneyland Resort Hotel.  The entrance will let you into the park near Paradise Gardens Park between Corn Dog Castle and Seaside Souvenirs.  

    If you're visiting Disney California Adventure Park, I highly recommend catching the neon lights turn on in Cars Land at night!  It's truly magical, and is just like in the movie as the neon lights progressively turn on down Route 66 to the song "Sh-Boom."  There is not a set time every night, but you can either ask a Cast Member what time it will take place, or you can check a weather app on your mobile phone for what time the sun will set in Anaheim that evening.  I usually try to get there 10 minutes before the sun will set, and I love to park right in front of Flo's V8 Café for the best view!

    I hope you have a wonderful trip this summer Kami, and if you have any other questions before your trip please come back and ask, we are here to help!  

    Have a magical day!
