    If we are at DCA (not staying at the Grand) and want to eat there, can we use the DCA exit and entrance? Or do we have to use the DCA exit?

    Hello, Abbie!

    Thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question about the Disneyland Resort. I hope you’re enjoying making plans for your visit to the Happiest Place on Earth!

    Only Guests of Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa with valid theme park admission can enter and exit Disney California Adventure Park using the private theme park entrance located in Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. An active Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa room key card must be presented to pass through this entry and exit point. However, the exception to this rule is if you are exploring Disney California Adventure Park and have a reservation to dine at Storytellers Cafe or Napa Rose, in which case you may enter Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa via the private turnstiles in the theme park. Dining reservations are highly recommended and can be made online or by calling (714) 781-DINE up to 60 days prior to your visit.

    I hope this helps you plan, Abbie. Please don’t hesitate to ask any other questions you can dream of as your vacation to the Happiest Place on Earth approaches!

    Wishing you magic,
