    Hi, we are checking in on 9/13 to the Disneyland Hotel. I have two questions: 1) can we use the pool area before check-in on that day, and 2) do you accommodate requests for early checkin?

    Hey, howdy, hey, Katy!

    Yeehaw! The answer is yes! You are eligible to enjoy the benefits and amenities of your Disneyland Resort Hotel on check-in day even before your room is available. That includes visiting the pool, early entry to the theme parks, and special entrances to access the theme parks.

    Tony’s Tip: Guess what! You get to enjoy those benefits on your check-out day too! My family loved relaxing at the Disneyland Hotel pool area after we checked out on the last day of our stay there recently. If you need a place to store your luggage after the 11 AM checkout time, Bell Services would be happy to help. And of course, Bell Services can provide that same service if you arrive before your room is available on check-in day.

    Though it is not guaranteed, we have occasionally had some luck in having our Disneyland Resort Hotel room ready before the normal afternoon check-in time. I recommend using the direct-to-room service available in the Disneyland mobile app. Before you arrive, use the app to complete your check-in, including indicating your expected arrival time. To use the digital room key feature, you’ll want to make sure the Bluetooth permissions are enabled for the app.

    You are going to have a magical stay, Katy! If you have any more questions, I hope you visit us at planDisney again.
