    We are coming in September and want to stay four nights - 2 nights at paradise pier and 2 nights at Disneyland hotel - can we do that and how do we organise it ? When should we book ?

    Hi Karen!

    Welcome to planDisney! How exciting that you'll be visiting Uncle Walt's original theme park this fall. Halloween time at Disneyland Resort is one of the seasons that goes all out with decor, themed snacks and so much more!

    Yes, you will absolutely be able to stay at two different Disneyland Resort Hotels during your visit. I think it's a lot of fun to break up one trip into multiple locations to be able to experience the amenities and theming of the various resorts. In fact, there's actually a name for this type of hotel hopping called a "split-stay."

    Since the three properties operate as their own individual hotels that aren't connected on the back-end, you'll actually make two individual hotel reservations: the first, checking-in on Friday and checking-out on Sunday, at Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel; and the second reservation at the iconic (ear-conic?) Disneyland Hotel with stay dates of that same Sunday through Tuesday. I recommend making these reservations as soon as possible just to be on the safe side. (However, you can absolutely keep an eye on the 'Offers and Discounts' page, and should any special promos be introduced you can call to see if your existing rooms can also qualify.) That's pretty much all that you'll need to do in advance in booking the stay-portion of your trip.

    The only area that will require a bit of extra thinking is what you'll want to do with the one overlapping check-out/check-in Sunday. You'll be able to store your bags with Luggage Services of either hotel. And Pro Tip: Disneyland Resort Hotel guests have access to the respective hotel's pools on both the check-in and check-out days, even before your room is ready and after you've checked-out, so be sure to keep any swim necessities with you. There are changing rooms in the pool areas and plenty of complimentary towels. And in your case, Karen, you'll be able to swim at both hotels on Sunday!

    I hope this helped with your upcoming Disneyland Resort vacation, Karen, and if there are any more questions you have about anything, we're all ears!
