    We will be checking into the Grand hotel Jan 4 and plan on going to CA Adventure that day. Are we able to get into that park early if we aren’t checked into the hotel yet? Or can we check in online and that counts as being checked in?

    Hi Amy! Welcome to planDisney! Thanks so much for stopping by and asking this great question. I'm happy to help!

    Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa is my favorite hotel at the Disneyland Resort! I'm so excited for you that you have reserved a stay there! I spoke with a Cast Member at the front desk this evening and was able to confirm that you can enjoy Early Entry at the theme park on your arrival day as long as you have checked in for your hotel reservation. You are correct that you can check in online and you are able to do that up to five days before you arrive. The Cast Member also mentioned that you will need to show the hotel reservation as you are scanning to enter the theme park. If you haven't already done so, be sure to make your theme park reservations for Disney California Adventure Park for that date.

    I hope you enjoy your stay at this beautiful resort! If you are looking for a great place to dine at the hotel, I highly recommend GCH Craftsman Bar! You can view the menus hereHearthstone Lounge also has delicious sips and bites on its menu. When you need some peaceful downtime, the lobby has lots of seating including some spots in front of a giant, cozy fireplace.

    If you have more planning questions, please visit us again at planDisney. We can't wait for you to be our guest and would love to help you have the best vacation at The Happiest Place on Earth!

    Happy Planning!
