    Is there a benefit besides proximity to staying at a Disney Hotel (such as early admission, meals, etc.)

    Hello Glen! 

    A very warm welcome to planDisney! Thanks for your great question! 

    I am so happy to hEAR that you are considering a stay at one of the Disneyland Resort Hotels! I always enjoy staying in the magic and I think you’ll love it as well. 

    You are correct that one of the major advantages to staying on property is the proximity to the theme parks. All three hotels are located within walking distance of Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park. But, that’s not all! 

    Once you’ve linked your reservation to your Disneyland Account, you’ll see a blue “Make Theme Park Reservations” button. This button will take you to the Resort Hotel Guest Theme Park Reservation Availability Calendar. This calendar has different availability than the Magic Key Access Calendar or the single day and multi-day ticket Availability Calendar. While you will still be required to make a Theme Park Reservation for your visit, you may find that your desired dates are available on one calendar and not another. 

    I always recommend linking your hotel reservations to your Disneyland Account. Let me walk you through the steps. First, log in to your Disneyland Account on the website and click My Disneyland then select My Hotel Reservations. From there you’ll be able to input your confirmation number, the last name on the reservation and your arrival date. Once the reservation is linked to your Disneyland account, it should show in the Disneyland Mobile App as well. 

    Also, be sure to complete online check-in up to five days prior to arrival. If you complete online check-in, you can use your digital key to bypass the Front Desk and go straight to your room! Once your room is assigned and ready, you can access your room and locate your hotel room number within the digital key feature on the Disneyland Mobile App. Then all you have to do is tap the “Unlock Door” button and hold your Bluetooth-enabled device against the door lock. Just make sure you have the latest version of the Disneyland Mobile App to use this feature. 

    I hope this helps! Enjoy a magical stay!
