    We, will arrive earlier than check in time, will we be able to use valet service when we arrive? We will be checking into the grand Californian the same day.

    Greetings, Samantha!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question. I can't wait for you to stay at my very favorite Disneyland Resort Hotel. I just love Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa for so many reasons. The location just can't be beat as it is literally connected to Disney California Adventure Park. This makes trips to the room throughout the day an absolute breeze. I'm still constantly captivated by the stunning lobby, subtle Disney details, impeccable customer service, and fantastic dining options at this hotel.

    I have often arrived very early on the day of check in, and I'm happy to inform you that you will be able to use valet and Bell Services at this time. When you arrive in the morning, you can actually head straight to the front desk to get your check-in process started no matter how early you are. You will be given your room key even if your room isn't quite ready. Later in the day you will get a text message with your room number, and you can go directly to your room without stopping by the front desk again. After you start the check-in process, you can begin to use the hotel's amenities such as the pool or fitness center with your room key. You can also make use of your Extra Magic Hour benefit as a hotel guest on your check-in day as well.

    You'll be happy to know that you can also utilize your hotel benefits on your entire day of check out even after you have left your room. Many times we have spent an afternoon at the pool after checking out or even a full day in the parks. You can conveniently store your luggage again at Bell Services after checking out.

    I hope this helps, and please return if you have any other questions. Have a Fantasmic day!
