    Can I use the CA Adventure entrance into the hotel if I have a lunch reservation at the GCH Craftman Bar so I don't have to leave the park?

    Hello, Susan!

    Thank you for contacting planDisney. Your visit to Disneyland Resort is only a few days away. How exciting! The GCH Craftsman Grill is my favorite, not-so-secret spot for breakfast and lunch, and the GCH Craftsman Bar offers a similar menu. The food is delicious! I always have a hard time choosing between the tasty Poke Bowl and the unique Avocado Panzanella, made with Avocado, Sourdough Bread, Baby Heirloom Tomatoes, Kalamata Olive Crumble, Feta, Arugula, and Charred Onion Chimichurri. Sometimes I order both and pretend to share with other family members!

    Guests visiting Disney California Adventure Park with lunch reservations inside Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa can use the exclusive entrance in my experience. We dine at GCH Craftsman Grill or Storytellers Cafe during most visits to Disneyland Resort, and we always use that entrance. Access to this entrance is subject to change at any time. However, I have used that entrance countless times to enjoy the spectacular dining options at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. This convenient entrance does take you out of the theme park, and you will need to pass through a security station to reenter the park. 

    Make sure to download the Disneyland mobile app before your visit! It gives you quick access to your park tickets and allows you to view wait times, mobile order food, and make Disney Genie+ Lightning Lane reservations. Disney Genie+ is a paid service that allows Guests to skip the standby lines on many popular attractions. We use it during every trip!

    Susan, enjoy your delicious meal! We hope to see you real soon!

    Magic Happens!
