    We’re going to Disneyland in November and staying in the Disneyland hotel. I was wondering what the process of getting through security check with our luggage will be? Is there a certain place we go to?

    Hi, Pamela!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I’m so glad to hear you’re planning to stay at the Disneyland Hotel. I love the chic, modern furnishings with a touch of Disney magic. My favorite element is the carved wooden headboards, featuring fiber-optic fireworks that create an in-room light and music show with the flip of a switch!

    You won’t need to pass through a security checkpoint with your luggage to enter the Disneyland Hotel as a Guest. Simply enter the hotel lobby and proceed to the Front Desk to check in upon arrival. However, to access the theme parks or the Downtown Disney District, you will need to go through a bag-check line and metal detectors for your safety. Once you go through the checkpoint located between the Disneyland Hotel and the Downtown Disney District, you won't need to repeat the process once you reach the entrance to the theme parks.

    I hope this answers your question, Pamela, and that your visit to the Happiest Place on Earth is all you’ve been dreaming! Please don’t hesitate to stop by again if there’s any other information you need about the Disneyland Resort

    Wishing you magic,
