    Hello, am I allowed to park at my resort hotel before check in so my family can enjoy going to Disneyland? Thanks!

    Welcome back to planDisney, Frank!

    It looks like you are working hard at making sure that you and your cast of characters get to enjoy the most magic as possible during your visit to The Happiest Place On Earth. Time is racing toward us ‘til April arrives! As Mulan’s General Li Shang told his soldiers, “Heed my every order, and you might survive”! So let’s get down to business to make sure you and your Mouseketeers take advantage of your time at the Disneyland Resort.

    I have great news for you, Frank. My fellow panelist, Tony S always makes sure to arrive early on check-in day. That way, he and his family can enjoy one of the best benefits of being a guest of the hotel: Early Entry to Disneyland Park and the Disney California Adventure park. Just leave your car at the hotel parking before the resort opens and head directly to one of the parks to enjoy Early Entry.

    Bonus tip: As a guest of a resort hotel, you'll be charged for parking on the nights you stay, which means you can still hang out at the resort after checking out - just drop your bags with bell services and hit up the parks! 

    It's important to note that parking rates may vary depending on the time of year and whether there are any special events taking place at the park.

    I hope these tips will help you and your family maximize the time that you get to experience the resort and enjoy every moment to the fullest. Feel free to send me a direct message if you think of any further tips or advice that you need and I’ll respond as swift as a coursing river!

    With good fortune and a great hairdo,
