    Hi - if we arrrive at the Disneyland Park before opening time, are toilets available to use OUTSIDE the entrance gates ? Thanks

    Well hello there, Paul!

    Welcome to planDisney, where the magic of Disney meets the wisdom of Winnie the Pooh. I’m delighted to answer your question and I'm here to make your Disneyland adventure as sweet as honey, just like Pooh Bear and his pals.

    I totally get your worries about the park opening, it can be quite a sticky situation. I've spent mornings waiting in line for up to 45 minutes just to get in at the 8am opening time, but trust me, it's always worth it. And if you need to go potty before heading in, no bother! The Main Entrance Restrooms on the west side of the Disneyland Park admission gates are conveniently located near the locker storage area, so you can drop off your bags and lighten your load before heading in.

    If you're feeling rumbly in your tumbly and also need to refuel, head over to the Downtown Disney District. There are plenty of food establishments to choose from, and many of them have restrooms available for customers. Just like Pooh and his love for honey, you can satisfy your cravings and take care of business at the same time.

    Hey Paul, let me give you the inside scoop on making the most of your time at Disneyland. The key to success is downloading the Disneyland Mobile App - it's like having your own personal Disney tour guide! Trust me, this app is a game-changer, especially when it comes to finding restrooms. You can easily filter different categories including restrooms! To access the map, just tap on the location pin icon at the bottom left of your screen. Then, click on "Attractions" at the top and select "restrooms" from the drop-down menu. You can even click "Show List" to get more details about each location. Don't waste your precious park time looking for a bathroom - let the app do the work for you!

    One of my favorite ways to enter you can take the monorail straight into Tomorrowland. The monorail is an easy smooth glide sure to relieve any stress as you prepare for entry into the parks. Plus there is a huge restroom available across from the station at the LEGO store if you need to go before the park opens.

    But Paul, if you really want to start your day off right, why not stay at one of the Disneyland Resort Hotels? You'll get Early Entry into the parks and avoid the rush at the entrance gates. Plus, you'll have a comfortable place to rest your head at night, just like Pooh in his cozy tree house.

    So, there you have it, Paul. Whether you're a Tigger bouncing with excitement or an Eeyore feeling a bit gloomy, I hope these tips help you feel ready to tackle park opening like a true Disney pro. Don't hesitate to come back and ask me another question if you need any more help.
