    For Disneyland California, do good neighbor hotels get the early theme park entry benefit?

    Hey there, Hi there, Ho there, Amy!

    You’re as welcome as can be at planDisney! Thank you for sending your question our way. I’m so glad to share ways to visit The Happiest Place On Earth while making the most of every benefit available!

    Early entry to the Disneyland Resort is a special perk offered to guests who stay at select Disneyland Resort Hotels. This allows guests to enter Disneyland Park an hour before the regular park opening time, giving them a head start on their day of adventure. This extra hour can be used to experience some of the most popular attractions one jump ahead of the crowds! When I got to enjoy entry to Disneyland Park for the launch of the Disney100 anniversary celebration last month, I decided to use this extra time to enjoy a peaceful stroll around the park, enjoying all the new platinum and purple decorations before the crowds arrived.

    Disneyland Good Neighbor Hotels are a group of hotels located near Disneyland, but not affiliated with the resort. They offer comfortable accommodations and some special perks to guests. Unfortunately, the early entry privilege is not available to guests staying at Good Neighbor Hotels. These hotels often offer a range of special packages and discounts for Disneyland Resort guests. These hotels are an excellent choice for guests who want to stretch their Disney dollars while still enjoying all that the resort has to offer.

    I hope I helped clarify your options for where to stay at and around the Disneyland Resort with your cast of characters, Amy. I can't wait to hear more about what adventures you all are planning for your stay! I’m as committed as you are to making your vacation as magical as it can be, so please feel free to message me directly if you think of any follow-up questions.

    You’ve got a friend in me,
